Supporting Your Health with Medicare

 

The state of your emotional or behavioral health is as important as your physical health.  It is the foundation for thinking, feeling, reasoning, communication, resilience and self-esteem. It is also the key to establishing and maintaining relationships, physical and emotional well-being, and performing basic functions.

Like the body, the human brain can also incur health difficulty.  When it does, it is considered a medical condition which can be treatable.  There does not need to be any shame involved, because setbacks and ailments can and do happen, like heart disease or diabetes, as examples.  Although conditions that affect our emotional and behavioral well-being have a lot in common with each other, the symptoms vary from mild, moderate to severe. As with so many other illnesses, early intervention is crucial in preventing the disorder from worsening, and possibly achieving a better state of health.

Since healthcare costs are increasing, it might be a source of worry when deciding to get help for yourself or someone you know. The tough decision to get help for a complex health condition can be eased by having insurance to cover various costs of professional services, including evaluation, diagnosis, and other processes; such as those involved in counseling or therapy.

 

Medicare Can Help to You Stay Emotionally Healthy

Fortunately, Medicare, a government insurance program, is currently being implemented to protect the health and well-being of Americans by giving them access to quality and affordable health care. As one of the world’s largest health insurance programs, Medicare can be relied on to cover the professional services pertinent to your overall health, including your emotional well-being, such as receiving counseling, diagnostic evaluations and preventive screenings. Millions of Medicare beneficiaries seeking treatment for their emotional wellness have received financial assistance from the multiple health care plans offered by Medicare.

As a beneficiary, you want to understand the many parts of the Medicare program to enable you to make the appropriate emotional/behavioral healthcare coverage choices.  One part of the program is called Original Medicare, which refers to Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance).  Other Plans, such as Medicare Advantage (Part C) and Part D offer alternative ways to get coverage.

In Part B, Medicare covers the preventive services meant to address your mental health. This includes screenings to ascertain your risk for depression or substance abuse. These services are generally provided by accredited professionals in a Medicare-enrolled facility. It also covers outpatient services for different types of psychotherapy, such as psychiatric assessment, individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling, and alcohol misuse counseling.

 

The Flexibility in Choosing Your Mental Health Counselor

Medicare also partners with credible institutions and independent professionals to provide beneficiaries more options in getting coordinated care from their preferred health professionals. This not only allows you to work with your trusted specialist, but it also can give you peace of mind that you are being cared for by a professional who meets Medicare’s highest standard of quality.
