How do I make dealing with health insurance companies easier?

I see two medical providers on a frequent (weekly to monthly) basis. Neither provider accepts insurance. This means that to receive reimbursement I have to mail invoices manually to my health insurance carrier. The process is very difficult to manage. Please help me. [more inside]

How do I get mental health services while uninsured in Tucson, AZ?

I have mental health issues and I need to see a therapist, a psychiatrist, and have my medications prescribed/refilled regularly.

Will my mental health treatment preclude me from future insurance coverage?

I don't currently have health insurance but might be seeking prescription help for depression from a GP, which I will pay out of pocket. Might this preclude me from health insurance coverage at a later date? [more inside]

Blarrrgghhhhhhhhh.......

My dept is becoming part of the National Division (home office in Georgia) rather than the Regional Division (where I now work at Regional Division Home Office in PA). I am not physically moving anywhere. My employer is now National Div, even though it is just the parent/umbrella of Regional Div. My insurance carrier will now be BCBS of GA instead of Highmark BS of PA. ADHD is covered by Highmark. It is not by BCBS of GA. I will end up paying about $4000 in out of pocket expenses due to this. Is this legal? What are my options? Supplemental insurance for MH does not exist. I make too much for any state aid and am ineligible for other state MH programs. (there is a TL;DR summary marked as such at the bottom) [more inside]

Depressed and without health insurance

I don't have health insurance right now, but I do get an allowance through work to go toward a private, individual plan. I haven't purchased a plan quite yet, and I'm wondering if seeing a therapist now might cause problems for me later. I also don't understand how pre-existing conditions are defined when it comes to mental health issues. (I live in Washington state.) [more inside]
