Kaiser Patient Stories

I’m paying more to get the care I need

Published Thursday, September 9, 2021

After struggling for years with body dysmorphia, I reached out to mental health services through Kaiser. It took me two different therapists with month-long waiting periods and multiple cancelled appointments with part-time therapists before I decided to find an out-of-pocket therapist. Now I pay$65 a session instead of $25, but I have consistent appointments every week.
