GOOD NEWS, SORT OF
I called the insurance company on Wednesday to have them translate the legal mumbo-jumbo they sent me in the letter I referred to in my previous post. I said to the live human being on the other end of the line, "I have one simple question. And hopefully you can give me a simple answer: If I go to see a psychiatrist, what's my co-pay?"
And the simple answer was: The same co-pay I would have if I saw a PCP or any other specialist. I'm limited to 32 visits per year (no big deal, I've been seeing the other p-doc once every 3 months), and once I find another p-doc I have to call an 800# and tell them who my new p-doc is. No PCP referral necessary.
On one hand, this is good. It means I don't have to pay an arm & a leg for psych care. On the other hand, it gives me less of an incentive to look for another job.
I'm really torn about this. I know, I know--in previous posts I was absolutely livid. And I am still angry. But on the other hand, I like the oodles of time off that I have. And I like my boss, even though she screwed me. She IS nice to me. And that's more than I can say about a lot of the dimwitted psycho-twits I've worked under in the past. (And if you've been reading this blog as long as I've been writing it, you know what I mean.)
I honestly thought I was going to spend my Christmas break posting my resume on a bunch of sites, but I didn't do a damned thing. I'm thinking I want to wait until after March. I'm going to a conference then & the college is paying for part of it.
So what do I do, people?
