Madeline-that is so sad...and unfortunately, not uncommon.

If you have it in you, with the help of your therapist, you can still fight it. First, ask for a supervisor or case manager of the insurance company if you have not already done so. You might even speak to an attorney and have a letter drafted asking them if they are willing to take responsibility for adverse consequences if they cut down your treatment. (I did this once to help a family member and it worked).

Have the therapist estimate the length of stay for a necessary inpatient facility course of treatment-call 3 places and get estimates of the cost. Present the cost analysis to the insurance provider, showing them that their treatment rationing will end up costing more $. Appeal the decision formally if they still refuse.

Call an insurance omnibudsman from a mental health agency/advocacy organization to help you with all this-they'd be best positioned to guide you in straighten this all out.

I really hope you can stay in therapy as you need it for your safety and well being, good luck Madeline.
