How to Use Medicare to Pay for Your Treatment
Q: Will Medicare pay for my treatment at The Blackberry Center hospital?
A: Yes! Medicare covers treatments in two ways. First, through Part A insurance, which covers acute inpatient mental health services. Secondly, through Part B insurance, which covers the cost of medical treatments.
What Does Medicare Part A Cover?
Medicare Part A’s crisis inpatient mental services cover the following:
- services from nursing staff
- supplies (room, meals, and medications that are part of your treatment)
- partial hospitalization
Medicare Part A’s coverage lasts for established time periods. Your coverage will start on the day you enter treatment and end 60 consecutive days after leaving treatment. The 2019 Medicare Part A deductible is $1,364.
There are a variety of reasons you may qualify for Medicare Part A. You may qualify if you are any of the following:
- Are age 65 or over and a U.S. citizen or legal resident of over 5 years
- Are on disability
- Have End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
What Does Medicare Part B Cover?
Put simply, Medicare Part B covers any services that are preventative or medically necessary. For mental health services, you can expect Medicare Part B to cover:
- Services and visits from social workers, psychologists, and doctors
- Preventative mental health services like annual depression screenings
- Outpatient treatments like group therapy, medication management, etc.
- Some prescription drugs (but most people are better served by enrolling in a prescription drug plan)
As of 2019, Medicare Part B’s deducible is $185. Anyone is eligible for Medicare Part B who is also eligible for Medicare Part A, provided they pay a monthly premium.
