    Thanks for posting this. Nice to hear the frustration from the therapist’s side. You are right, this is happening more and more. Want to what really makes an anxious person w/OCD More Anxious? When the provider tells you when making your first appointment that you must provide your credit card or debit card information over the phone OR leave a $100 CASH DEPOSIT (like every one has a spare $100 around!), BEFORE being able to see the therapist. This is even though you have already verified that the therapist is a covered provider and your copay is $35. – I went to another office that did not have this requirement.

      Amazing. I would never do that, but on the business side, I can see why someone might. Hopefully you don’t go into working with people for the money, but it can get frustrating when you see patients pay more out of pocket, therapists get less, and guess who’s maikin the big profits?

    oh god that sounds so frustrating! Never call insurance help line numbers. If you want any kind of medical advice and help from home, https://twealr.com/ does exactly that. It is home to loads of healthcare professionals from every area such as psychotherapy to Nutritional advice. Since I found it, it has been my no.1 source of medical help, barely even go to the physical doctors any more either ๐Ÿ™‚
