My son just got Medicaid so that he can get into the intensive community treatment program we have here.
When he did, his case manager expected me to drop him from the private insurance we have him on through my work.
I was like nope - how can I depend on that to be there? And, how will I know if I will be able to get him back on my insurance as a disabled dependent if I ever take him off?
I think before Obamacare, we had mental health treatment, but it was limited to 26 total visits a year (psychiatrist & therapists combined) plus there was no cap on how much we would pay a year, and it may not have counted towards our deductible. I can’t remember what the hospitalization was like, but I’m sure it wasn’t as good as now.
Maybe limited to a number of days per year?
