Does Medicare Cover Psychotherapy? Find Out Here

As we age, our mental health becomes just as important as our physical health. Medicare is a federal health insurance program that covers a wide range of medical services, including mental health services. But does Medicare cover psychotherapy? The answer is yes, but with some limitations.

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is a form of mental health treatment that involves talking to a licensed mental health professional to help manage and treat mental health conditions. Psychotherapy can be done one-on-one, in a group, or with family members.

Does Medicare Cover Psychotherapy?

Yes, Medicare covers psychotherapy, but only under certain conditions. Medicare Part B covers outpatient mental health services, including psychotherapy, but you must meet certain criteria to qualify for coverage. You must have a mental health condition that is diagnosed by a doctor, and the psychotherapy must be provided by a licensed mental health professional who accepts Medicare.

Medicare covers 80% of the cost of psychotherapy, and you are responsible for the remaining 20%. If you have a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy, it may cover some or all of the remaining cost.

What Types of Psychotherapy Does Medicare Cover?

Medicare covers a wide range of psychotherapy services, including:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Interpersonal therapy (IPT)
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy

How to Get Psychotherapy Covered by Medicare

To get psychotherapy covered by Medicare, you must first get a referral from your primary care doctor or a specialist. Your doctor will need to diagnose you with a mental health condition and recommend psychotherapy as a treatment option. Once you have a referral, you can find a licensed mental health professional who accepts Medicare and schedule an appointment.
