If you have a behavioral health condition (like depression, anxiety, or another mental health condition), Medicare may pay your health care provider to help manage your care for that condition. Some health care providers may offer care management services using the Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model.

What it is
The Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model is a set of integrated behavioral health services, including care management support, that may include:
- Care planning for behavioral health conditions
- Ongoing assessment of your condition
- Medication support
- Other treatments your provider recommends
Your health care provider will ask you to sign an agreement for you to get this set of services on a monthly basis.
