T's billing policies--moral?

Posted by smokeymadison on February 10, 2005, at 12:38:46

i am sick of waiting for the local crisis center to call me back--i know that i am on a waiting list, so i am going to see a private T. She charges $120 up front--then i have to file it w/ my insurance company to get 80% back. is this morally right? i can barely afford rent, let alone this. i am on six medications--each costing at least $40 a month. i am trying to get help w/ the meds, but i am so p*ssed at this T for insisting that i pay everything up front. she will have nothing to do with my insurance company; i have to file everything myself and wait a month and a half to get the 80% back.

how do your Ts handle the billing? Is this typical? Do i have a reason to be upset? she is a very good therapist, that is why i am going ot do this, but is it ethical to put that kind of financial pressure on somebody who is mentally ill and hasn't been able to work since Oct? comments, please!
