How to Use Medical Insurance Benefits for Mental Health

For most major insurance plans, mental health benefits are included as a covered treatment. Your insurance plan will help pay for office visits to see a psychiatrist. The visits will typically fall under the Specialty Provider category of your insurance plan. Antidepressant medications, if prescribed, will be covered under the plan’s prescription drug benefit program.

Most insurance plans also cover newer treatments for depression, such as TMS, as long as the patient meets eligibility requirements. Colorado Recovery Solutions accepts insurance for TMS treatment, making Colorado Recovery Solutions an excellent choice for TMS treatment in Colorado Springs. The office staff can help you determine your eligibility for coverage based on your insurance company’s TMS coverage criteria.
