Ok. The psychiatric hospital my son is in DOES NOT do any psychiatric testing or evaluations because insurance pays them under one big baloon payment, so they would have no extra funds to pay anyone to come in and do any psychiatric testing nor do they have anyone on staff qualified to do so. My question is...are there any phosps in CT that DO offer psychiatric testing and evaluations while inpatient? I am anticipating another inpatient stay after my sons discharge (how sad is that?) and while I love the staff, am comfortable with the facilities, etc. I am curious what my options are. If they're all basically the same (NO testing because insurance won't pay for it), then it would make no sense to sit in an ER for days to hope a bed opens up when I am almost guaranteed a bed at this hospital for him...but if another hospital will actually do some extensive testing on him while he's there, it would be worth the wait. So, if anybody in my area has any experience with CT psychiatric hospital's they'd like to share (feel free to PM me), that would be great.
