Does Medicare Cover Therapy, Counseling, and Psychologists?
Medicare Part B covers mental health services from professionals like psychiatrists, doctors, clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
Family counseling will be covered, but only if its main function is to help with your treatment. Individual and group therapy are also covered; however, it needs to be performed by a licensed doctor/professional in the state you reside in.
Original Medicare will only cover said visits if you receive them from a healthcare provider who accepts the assignment. Not all healthcare professionals will accept Medicare assignments.
