Interesting question, standard is different then Prime, so I'm not sure. You will need a referral regardless from your psychotherapist.

The thing is my husband was diagnosed mild OCD and SAD so he used up all 8 visits. I posted a few weeks ago about the crazy extreme mood swings I've been having and now I would like to talk to someone. I just hope they'll authorize more.

So YOU didnt use the 8 visits yet?  If not, you need a referrral and you get your own 8 visits to use apart from your dh before you need additional requests.  A pp put the link for you, its all you should need.

Okay, so it's 8 per person? Am I reading it right?
