Insurance Companies Are Satan's Motor

Set up the evaluation, it's at 2pm and will last an hour to an hour and a half.  It will cost $148 because my insurance isn't covering it, it's a part of my deductible, because I haven't been diagnosed with anything yet.  Un. Fucking. Believable. The receptionist was trying to find a slot on her calendar for next week because apparently my faxed over records from my CBT therapist were suggestive of getting me something as soon as possible.  But according to my insurance company I'm making it all up until I give them the $148.

At least I have the appointment.  And I'm spending enough money on medical stuff this year to get a fairly hefty tax break, but that's not the point, the point is a. recognition that mental illness is actually illness and b. the fact that these guys take advantage of vulnerable people -- some of whom have no real option but to not get treatment because they can't afford it -- and there's a place in hell for them.
