I'm on hold with ins. company to find out my exact benefits. I have to get her evaled again. I was just kicked, head butted scratched and almost bit and told she was going to call 911 because I was holding her down. I had just told mighty mouse to bring me the phone, because I was about 10 seconds from calling myself. Her room is destroyed. She kicked the door, pulled all of her clothes out of the laundry hamper and threw them on the floor as well as anything else she could get her hands on. While I'm typing, I just find out how badly my ins. stinks when it comes to mental illness. I have to meet this ridiculous deductible, which only 80% of the bills apply to the deductible. She's only allowed 30 inpatient days and 20 outpatient. Ugh! However, after I kinda melted down over this, he put me on hold and came back and told me that if my child is diagnosis'd with a "biologically-based" disorder, I only have to pay my copay. I asked if Bipolar disorder was under that umbrella and he said yes. HA! If I'd known that, I would have had her evaled years ago. For goodness sakes, why have they kept that a secret? So, I've made the appointment. (I've been typing this in peices). I actually got a provider to give me an appointment at the end of the month, instead of six months from now.....that's a shocker! I think I'm going to get both kids off to bed and make myself an apple martini! I think I really deserve a good stiff drink tonight.
