You don’t get to call me your Patient
Unless you’re going to take my Health Insurance
If you want me to take Money OUT OF MY POCKET and put it in YOUR HAND
I am your CLIENT
I am paying you for a service
If you want to have real Patients
Then step up and accept Health insurance
Be like the real doctors
not like the new age alternative healers
What’s that you say?
You won’t make enough money?
It’s too much confusing paperwork for you?
Oh shoot I’m so sorry….but people are sick and dying and languishing in this system with No Care
People are in crisis waiting to be seen
People are waiting forever to see a doctor who takes their insurance only to find out that that Doctor is NOT COOL OR COMPETENT
People are unable to find a doctor who takes their insurance
People finally find a good or relevant provider only to learn that they DON’T TAKE INSURANCE
People are waiting forever at the ER and then walking away with NOTHING
Your CLIENTS who Need to see you are Not coming in because they Can’t Afford To!
And BY all means it makes sense to make the people struggling with the illness go through the confusing Paperwork!
“You’re brain is so messed up I am going to drown you in these pills…here’s your statement! Have fun submitting it and trying to get any of your money back!”
Even Chiropractors will SUBMIT the paperwork for patients if they can’t participate with the Insurance Companies….
But you’re not a Chiropractor
You CAN participate
People think you are legit
Insurance companies WILL pay for psychiatric treatment or therapy
YOU are the one messing it up for us
I know that you aren’t necessarily given the same treatment by insurance companies as all the other real doctors but maybe you could start SOMEWHERE
I know everybody has to make a living but COME ON
Is it really THAT BAD????
If you accepted insurance would you like have to go on welfare?
I have been to some psychiatrists that take insurance…
And guess what…they eat and wear nice clothes and drive nice cars and I’m pretty sure they live in houses
What are you in this helping profession for anyway?
What made you go into this field?
What were you calculating when you were crunching your numbers trying to decide whether or not to take insurance…?
Were you thinking of how many people are trapped in a broken system?
How many people need help?
Did you think about how many of the people in the jails have mental illnesses and have fallen through the cracks….(the huge gaping cracks)?
Did you consider the number of people who are homeless on the street because they are mentally ill and can’t get access to care?
Were you thinking about the suicide rates?
Did you actually think that the only people who really need help are the people with hundreds and hundreds of dollars in their pockets?
You know better than that
People ARE SUFFERING
People are dying
And guess WHAT
YOU COULD HELP
If you’re in this field and you care then Speak up and Start saying things and do what is Right.
nobody is going to listen to me..to us…the mentally ill…
we need you guys…the doctors, the workers in the field, and our friends and loved ones to stand up, step up, and speak up.
