Basic Facts About Medicare


Statistics reveal that behavioral and emotional disorders are very common in the United States. In 2016, it was reported that one in six US adults, or 44.7 million adults live with an illness in varying degree of severity. If you belong to this sector of the population and your doctor recommends counseling for your condition, you can use Medicare to finance your emotional health care.

People with cognitive disorders and emotional/behavioral issues rely on Medicare as a lifeline to their wellness. Medicare is a national health insurance program of the US government. It is operated by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the US Department of Health and Human Services. It covers a broad array of treatment services, including coverage for behavioral health, emotional health and substance abuse disorders.

As a Medicare beneficiary, it is important to have adequate knowledge about the options available in order to optimize your benefits. Understanding how the program works can help you choose the best options responsive to your medical needs and budget.


Medicare Provides Access to Help You with Your Unique Needs

The multiple and complex health needs of people with emotional and behavioral symptoms require an enhanced level of care to ensure better and long-lasting results. According to Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), the price of care can be a foremost obstacle to treatment. Administering to these health conditions can only come from professionals with appropriate experience and training. Cognizant of this need, Medicare partners with credible institutions and professionals who have passed the highest quality standards.

If you are enrolled in Original Medicare (Part A, B and D), you can choose your trusted professional in their preferred facilities as long as your choice is qualified and credentialed by Medicare. Part B of Original Medicare covers multiple therapeutic health services for individuals, couples, families or groups. This includes diagnostic visits and therapy sessions, both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Under this policy, there is no need for a Doctor’s Referral from a primary health provider prior to behavioral health counseling.

During this difficult time, it is a relief to have Medicare to rely on.
