If There’s a Will, There’s a Way
Imagine you are a 17-year old girl with mental health issues and being told you cannot receive the immediate care that you need simply because you don’t have a parent or legal guardian. Tamara was having suicidal ideation and was referred to us by a social worker at PUSD. She needed help immediately. Our insurance outreach specialist discovered that MediCal could provide the help she needed by using a special enrollment that took effect in January of 2022. This new enrollment enables 17 year olds to secure mental health services without having parent or guardian notification or approval.
Tamara is now receiving the life saving care she needs and deserves and her new insurance will provide her care for the next year. We wish Tamara all the best on her journey to health.
