Kaiser, Don't Deny
Patients need access to timely and consistent mental health services
I pay as much out of pocket for therapy as for insurancePublished Saturday, August 6, 2022
I pay almost $500 out of pocket for insurance as a trans person. I have mental health issues and Kaiser will only give me a therapist if I’m in a group for substance abuse. It’s wrong. I need a therapist and I now pay just as much out of pocket for therapy as I do for insurance. So now I’m paying twice the amount for what? I’ve asked Kaiser to give me therapy for 13 years.
