PaLady, I am within the insurance's age limit so they shouldn't cut me off because of that. And as far as being a full student, since its summer I don't have to be a full time student and they aren't signing up for fall yet. I was full time in spring and last fall too. So there is absolutely no reason for my insurance to be cut off. They just love giving people the run around when it means they have to pay for treatments. I'm sure that's also the reason I haven't gotten anything in the mail about my referral for physical therapy.

Sjkly, I live just north of LA. I think UCLA is considered a teaching hospital right? I don't know how to go about getting in and doing everything you said though. I also don't know if they go through the insurance or how much doing something like that will cost. If you could I wouldn't mind some more information about it though.

Mami-I don't know much about it either-I was twenty-five a full time graduate student-no longer on my parents insurance and too sick to work so on medicaid. My GP at the time made all the arrangements for me to go to SUNY-Upstate. My first appointment with them was six hours and I was "an interesting case" so partway through my visit the head of Rhuematology walked in and appointed himself my doctor. My follow up appointment was with the head of Rhuematology, the head of Internal Medicine, another rhuemy, an infectious disease doctor and a whole bunch of residence-a bit intimidating.
I know that I would never have gotten that kind of attention or that quality of care on medicaid with private providers.
Maybe ask your doctor for a referal to UCLA. You can check whether they take your insurance on line either by going to the hospital web site or by going to your insurance companys web site.
Sorry I cant be of more help.
