I find it impossible to keep up with changes in practices of the different medical aids, but maybe other readers are familiar with PMB. Generally, Bipolar Disorder i considered a Chronic Condition and should receive the appropriate benefits for that ( actually, so should major Depression, but they don't want to admit that ). If there is an acute problem, the doctor should agree to look into this without making you wait 2 weeks to see him about it - and his receptionist is required to be helpful. She must at least be able to tell you whether he submitted the codes for Bipolar Disorder or something else, and she should brief him on the problem, as he could possibly make representations to Discovery to sort this out
