Worked at blue cross blue shield (or one of the regional ones). Lower pay since most are “not for profit”, good benefits tho. Culture is great, rare to work over 45 hours a week.

Is it the BCBC association or HCSC? I have heard different things about the two. For the association, you’d have to think about whether you would like managing the “brand” without having much influence on operations

HCSC I believe

Woo-Hoo! Investment property #4 in the books! This addition now brings my monthly cash flow after all expenses (PITI + PM and saving 10% of the rent for maintenance & insurance) at approximately $1,200 a month. My goal is $1,700mo. Need 2 more houses! Then I plan to buy more for a cushion.

Do all therapists use the line, “I’m not taking any new patients at this time.” When they don’t want to see someone?! I found someone who would be perfect and got that line. Seems like I’ve gotten that line every time I’ve reached out to a counselor… has anyone successfully gotten past that barrier? Do they not want to take on someone who has insurance and would rather get the full bill rate in cash?

Been severely struggling with depression and anxiety lately. Obviously this job is one big reason why. I opened up to the partner a few months back about it when I started missing random days when I couldn’t get out of bed. Maybe 2/3 days over the last 4 months total. This week he sat me down and told me he is worried about my mental health causing me to be a “liability” to the firm. I can’t stop thinking about this and don’t know how to turn it around.

Deciding that next year (ideally before) is my cut off for leaving this job; whether it’s through a new career path, manual labor or just quitting without a backup plan. My mental health deserves better, sticking it out for one more year as I aim to to be vested in my 401K and save up for 6-9month emergencies. I feel insane for leaving consulting especially with only 1-2 YOE but it’s just not worth it anymore.

Had another AD help my CW on a brief while I was on PTO for a couple of days, and is now refusing to get off the project and letting me do my job. I'm all for collaboration and appreciate the three hours he worked on it, but it's getting to the point that he's trying to steamroll me out of my own team and project by not letting me have any input on my own work. It's starting to really impact the output and dynamics. What do I do?
