I have mental health issues and I need to see a therapist, a psychiatrist, and have my medications prescribed/refilled regularly. I'm moving next month to be with my significant other (not married), but I'll lose my health insurance which is through my current state. Where do I get these mental health services at a reduced cost as an uninsured person in Tucson, AZ?
S/O will have full coverage through employment. I have no job, and am on break from schooling due to these health issues.
I have just been turned down for a basic health insurance plan that had a $10k deductible through Blue Cross Blue Shield of AZ due to my preexisting mental health conditions (the letter states it's due to ADHD, anxiety, major depression). I assume that applying to more private insurance companies would be futile.
I can't get coverage through the health care reform's PCIP
until 6+ months have passed since having health coverage. What am I supposed to do until then? I am not eligible for any of the state health programs in Arizona (such as AHCCCS
). I checked out PCAP
but they don't cover mental health services.
I know of options for different health reasons (Planned Parenthood, for example), but I can't find anything similar for mental health stuff.
All my medications are generics, so I can use a $4 generics program.
I just need to do regular therapy sessions, and have someone write refills for my meds. Where can I get that done?
