Q: Will Medicare pay for my treatment at The Blackberry Center hospital?

Medicare Part A’s crisis inpatient mental services cover the following:
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:
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:
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.
