Alright, @GOP, you want to talk about mental illness? Let’s talk!

My sister almost died because she couldn’t access treatment. She had insurance! But it used a loophole allowing coverage of prescriptions through refunds.

The up front cost of her meds was around $1000 MONTHLY.
The refund process was the most complicated B.S. I have ever seen.

You had to go to the insurance website and enter multiple long numbers for each prescription.

They frequently changed the layout of the page so you didn’t know which number went where.
For her to get treatment, she had to:

1. Have some way of paying $1000+ up front every month.

2. Have routine access to a computer.

3. Have the capability to navigate a complex system designed to keep you from succeeding.
