Understanding Medicare Coverage: Does it Include Mental Health Counseling?

As we age, our mental health becomes just as important as our physical health. Unfortunately, many seniors struggle with mental health issues, and Medicare coverage for mental health services can be confusing. In this blog post, we’ll answer the question: does Medicare cover mental health counseling?

What Mental Health Services Does Medicare Cover?

Medicare Part B covers mental health services, including:

  • Outpatient mental health services
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Medication management

It’s important to note that Medicare only covers mental health services that are deemed medically necessary. This means that the services must be necessary to diagnose or treat a mental illness. Additionally, Medicare only covers services provided by a licensed mental health professional who accepts Medicare assignment.

What Mental Health Services Does Medicare Not Cover?

Medicare does not cover all mental health services. Some services that are not covered include:

  • Marriage counseling
  • Family therapy
  • Psychological testing
  • Custodial care

If you’re unsure whether a service is covered, it’s best to check with Medicare or your healthcare provider.
