My husband does not have insurance right now so his pd has a program for noninsured folks to help out with the cost.. and he also gave him some samples to get him started.
I think you just have to be VERY resorsfull when calling and making the appt. to ask about such programs.. good luck..

Re: Bipolar & no insurance

My son did not have insurance when he reached the end of his rope. Fortunately he knew about County Mental Health. He walked in and told them he needed help NOW. They understood what he was saying and got him in that morning.
The Doctor put him on Lamictal, provided by the drug company for people without insurance. He has been on it 6 months and he is doing well. Keep trying Restless heart.. there is help out there.I dont know which country you are in. But the USA does have clinics and such for people who desperately need mental health care. It sounds like you fit the description.

Re: Bipolar & no insurance

Welcome to the board. I'm in the insurance bus and about to be kicked off our plan. It's a bummer!
My wife has bp and no ins co will pick her up. I have UC and no ins co will take that. I may have to get a real job! It's sad because I make good money and love my chosen field. When being uninsured and unisureable it make life hard.
God Bless
