Yeah. My counselor has actually offered to make a copy of my insurance card to give to me. Or raiding my mom's purse is always an option. Technically, I think the cards may be separate, but I’m not 100% sure. I have a copier though. But yeah. I do worry about my recent services being shown though. I could ask my mom for the details I guess and just have permission to go. It just all makes me nervous though. I hope to start taking responsibility for myself though the next time I stay at her house for these things. She has told me she would try to get me in with a psychiatrist, but she hasn’t. I don’t know if she just forgets or doesn’t want to think I’m not perfect. It’s none of her business though if I am the one in charge of my appointments. It’s just figuring out how to do it that’s hard for me and finding which doctors take my insurance.Concerning your insurance card, does your mom actually have an extra card for you that she's hoarding, or is there just one for the family? You shouldn't even need the physical card, just the numbers (and get the phone number, too). You might even be able to call the insurance company and ask for a replacement. (Note that it will probably go to your home address, and could be intercepted.) But if you're visiting an office where you're already established, I don't think you'll need any of the above because they'll already have the number on file. All you have to do is call them and ask. This may be a lot simpler than you think.
If you're trying to keep your visits secret, keep in mind that the insurance company will send a periodic statement to your house listing all recent services.
