It has been over two years since Superstorm Sandy touched down in Little Egg Harbor, NJ. You would think that everything would be back to normal by now, but unfortunately, even with a lot of the structural damage having been repaired, there are still emotional issues that linger. Suffering from a traumatic weather event can have long lasting effects on people- especially people who lost their homes and/or businesses.
Emotional health is an important part of your well-being and should be managed with the same care you use for your physical health. If you are still suffering from the effects of Superstorm Sandy or from any type of mental distress, we urge you to get help. There are many resources available to help get you back on your feet. One little known source of information on mental health is your health insurance carrier.
Most health insurance carriers offer confidential mental health hotlines that can be utilized at your convenience or whenever you need to talk. Also, your health insurance carrier can help direct you to the right doctors or clinics that specialize in mental health issues such as:
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Check the back of your insurance card to see if there are special phone numbers to call in order to discuss mental health issues.
Taking care of your mental health is important. Sometimes it takes more than just “getting over it” and moving on with life. When you need help, we want to get you that help as soon as you need it. Call us if you have any questions on how your health insurance covers mental health insurance claims. We can also help get you contact information at your health carrier’s offices to better serve your physical and emotional health needs.
