Why doesn't the block center take insurance?

Why doesn't the block center take insurance?

Give better care: Insurance companies are corporations making profits and answering to stockholders. I believe medical decisions should be between doctors and patients. Insurance companies can tell a doctor how much time to spend, which tests to run and how to treat the patient, including which prescriptions to prescribe. The block center gives patients a super bill so they can file their own insurance. ...Read more

Is there a specific way for testing adults with adhd? I know some doctors, psychologists, and psychiatristsdon't take insurance for tests that involve extensive work ups. What's the basic test and what could people avoid so they save money?

Is there a specific way for testing adults with adhd? I know some doctors, psychologists, and psychiatristsdon't take insurance for tests that involve extensive work ups. What's the basic test and what could people avoid so they save money?

Neuropsych testing: Since there is no one test that is always sensitive, it can be misleading to see claims that a specific test can or cannot rule out adhd. Carefull history, current and retrospective inventories of symptoms and combinations and patterns on neuropsychological tesing is your best bet if you want to be certain about a diagnosis that is presumed lifelong and has lots of possible comorbid problems. ...Read more

What to do for lumbar strain I have a very painful lumbar strain going on two weeks now. My dr refuses to refill my pain killers and I need them. What do I do? Do pain management drs take insurance? I need to ease my pain but drs are very hesitant to give

Typically,: Typically, an acute lumbar strain will improve with time and appropriate stretching and physical therapy. Often ice and/or heat will be of benefit, as well. Your post doesn't detail how you were injured or any of the symptoms you are experiencing specific to your problem. I would start by seeing your primary care doctor, reviewing your situation and coming up in a collaborative way a treatment strategy for you to follow. The first step will be to confirm whether or not the actual diagnosis is a lumbar strain versus other pathology such as a compression fracture, disc herniation and so forth. Good luck! ...Read more

I am due soon. Drs won't see me im too far along, don't take my insurance or no appts soon. What do I do. I'm being denied prenatal care. Found out late.

I am due soon. Drs won't see me im too far along, don't take my insurance or no appts soon. What do I do. I'm being denied prenatal care. Found out late.

Still ok, because: In the old days, no one got prenatal care, women still had child-births. You already had 6 births, so you should be able to draw from prior experiences. The difference is higher risk, that is why prenatal care is highly recommended. Ask your doctor what he/she recommends in your situation. Even if no ob/gyn doctor will take you now, you can ask your primary care or family medicine doctor. ...Read more
