Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello I believe I can help you with your concern
I am so sorry you are having these difficulties at home, I can imagine why you are so distressed and want to move out.
You mentioned that you can move to another state with a friend, who may be able to provide you with a job, I would like to ask what about your mental health care, namely your medications for Bipolar Disorder? How would that be handled if you move?
I do thinking moving would be good for your psychological health and independence because you mention that your parents treat you like a child and that is not good for you. But I just want to make sure that you have a good mental health contact present if you do decide to move. This will be beneficial for you
i do i have the option to do medocaod
Before you plan to move to this new city and state, I would call the psychiatrists or primary care doctors in that area to see if they have openings to see new patients and if they accept medicaid.
Also you mentioned that your friend can find you a job, how confident are you that your friend will be able to help you get employment?
im under my dads insurance would thaat end if i moved out
It depends, your dad cancel your insurance. Or the new state that you are moving to may not accept his insurance. For instance Kaiser Peramanente insurance is not accepted by most states in this country.
*Your dad CAN cancel your insurance
but under obama care id still be eligible right
You definitely would be eligible for the insurance exchanges in most states, which I believe start in January 2014, but that is a very confusing law and I am not expert on Health care law. Either way you still most likely would qualify for at least medicaid.
so i just need to find a place thst accepts medicaid
That would be best for you, if you tell me what city you are planning on moving to, I can look up a list of psychiatrists that possibly accept medicaid for you
myrtle beach sc
Okay give me a few minutes to compile a list for you
So I looked for you and there are no psychiatrists listed near you that accept medicaid, unfortunately. So your best bet would be to go to a primary care doctor that accents medicaid. Many of them do (more so than psychiatrists) and they can prescribe mood stabilizers and other medications for you.
thank u so much
