Carolina Counseling Services – Medicare


Someone can experience an emotional, or behavioral health condition at any time. Receiving proper care for health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, is essential to recovery. Seeking the best treatment recommended by health practitioners may include medication, counseling or alternative therapy, which can be expensive. Unfortunately, not all people have access to affordable insurance or have an insurance policy that covers emotional and behavioral health.

Whether you are insured, or your insurance coverage is inadequate, Medicare can be your lifeline to health and economic security. Medicare is the largest health insurance program run by the federal government. It is operated by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under the US Department of Health and Human Services. As a federal program, it is geared toward members based on age or disability status regardless of income. To know more about the different benefits offered by Medicare, it is important to understand what specific type of Medicare program is suited for your medical needs and budget.


Medicare Coverage for Mental Health

Central to adherence to the recommended treatment mode for emotional stress is the quality of service that requires credible professionals to meet the needs of special services. To guarantee a quality provider-patient relationship, Medicare provides you with the flexibility to choose doctors, hospitals, and counselors, regardless of location, provided they accept Medicare.


Medicare is structured into four parts, and as a member, you may find yourself eligible for one or more of the parts to help cover mental health care services.


  • Medicare Part A covers hospitalization and inpatient services.
  • Medicare Part B covers outpatient services and regular medical care. This includes a wide range of psychotherapeutic health services, such as diagnostic visits and psychotherapy treatments.
  • Medicare Part C or Medicare Advantage is an option to maximize the benefits of A, B, and D.
  • Medicare Part D is for low-income members in need of extra financial support to pay for drugs needed to treat psychological, emotional or behavioral health condition.


Beneficiaries also enjoy an advantage not available from other insurance organizations. With Medicare, there is no need to get a referral from a primary care provider prior to behavioral health counseling. All you need to do is to know how to choose the right therapist who can help improve your emotional condition.
