Psychiatry consult. : I imagine each insurance company is different, however making an appointment with a psychiatrist known to be skilled in add diagnosis and treatment should be sufficient. Your insurance company should cover a visit for an initial psychiatry consultation.

If you need actual psych testing you can try a university clinic that trains grad students. they should have a low fee.

Depends: Depends on who the dispute is with. It is with a physician, i suggest talking to the practice manager. If it is with the insurance company, and a supervisor cannot help you, then you may need to go to the state insurance commissioner. We need more information on the nature of the problem.

What does a deductible mean for insurance?

Your portion of pay: Let say you have a $1000.00 annual deductible insurance plan and your total year cost for medical care is $4000.00, you will have to pay 1000. If it costs 9000, you still pay only 1000. If it costs 750 for the year, you pay 750--insurance will pay nothing because it is below your deductible level. Basically means u r responsible for the first 1000, in this case. Hope that makes sense.

What must I know about my health insurance before going to the ER in another city?

Nothing: If you have an emergency, it doesn't matter about your insurance. Er's are legally obligated to treat/stabilize anyone regardless of their financial/insurance status. Insurance companies may balk, but if you need emergent care, the payment is secondary.
