My psychiatric clinic does Rehabilitation Day Services and home visits, along with a case manager who can manage you money, ect. I go to RDS three times a week.

There purpose is to keep you out of the hospital and living independently in society.

In got into this clinic after my mom put me out of her house. I was homeless for about a month then court ordered into the State Hospital. I was in the hospital for a month and put into this program with indigent funding. I’m off of indigent funding now and living on Social Security disability.

Are you on medi-care?

Do you have to pay any extra expense for services and drugs.

I’m just on Medicare. There’s a $200 annual deductible, and after that there’s a 20% copay. Some things like lab work are no charge. For drugs there is a tier system. Tier 1 preferred generic, tier 2 generic, tier 3 preferred brand, tier 4 brand drugs, and tier 5 speciality drugs. The higher the number the greater the copay is. After that the copay varies depending on if you use a preferred or standard pharmacy.

FYI, you don’t qualify for Medicare until you have been on Social Security for two years or are 65+.

Omg that sounds like a lot of money.
I am on medi-cal right now and pay nothing. Zero.
I will be switched over to medi-care soon which I will still get to stay with the same hospital but. Expenses - That sounds like a lot out of pocket.
Yeah when i worked - I paid a lot for healthcare too. But SSDI is 1/3 of what I made working I am freaking out switching to medi-care.

Thanks for the info- makes me sad.

You’re welcome @Kxev

I really don’t like voting in polls that post who voted what. Can you make it anonymous?

Sorry about that. I can’t change it after 10 minutes I believe, or something like that.

I didn’t think privacy would be an issue with psychiatric care you receive.

I put below average because i dont even see a health professional anymore and do my own injections

I don’t get much care, but I’m fortunate that I don’t need much.

My California doc is so great, it’s gonna suck changing to a local community one. They probably won’t care at all about me. Fortunately I’m on a stable dosage of my meds and just really need someone to write the same scripts each month.

That’s good to hear that you are stable. Right now that’s where I’m at too.

I mean they should have forced me legally to take meds but they didn’t.

My recent psychiatric care took with their treatment, my ability to work away. 10 years later I get psychiatric care to go back to work again. I don’t know, psychiatric care is confusing. There is nothing I can do, the traces got deleted. But psychiatric care is constantly changing. The treatment changed. I just make sure I take the injection :syringe:.

I don’t know if I need it. Just a question, but I don’t have the answer yet.
