i do not have insurance, and was seeing a phsyciatrist who would not see me anymore when i lost my insurance, he would not take private pay either.....how do i get the help i need without insurance??????
I am sorry that you lost your insurance. Hopefully, you will be able to get back on to health insurance.
There is a network of free clinics throughout the U.S. You can check with a clinic in your area, some may have psychologists or physchiatrists on staff. You can also check with your local health department to ask about resources in your area.
I hope this helps
free clinics are not worth a darn for giving people medicine they need!!!!!!
The psychiatrist you were seeing is the first one I've heard of that would not take cash. And I've been seeing them since 1989.
Nowadays, a psychiatrist's primary function is to diagnose and write prescriptions. Perhaps he can refer you to someone who will take cash.
Another option might be to contact a local hospital and find out if they have a mental health outpatient clinic.
