Behavioral health integration services
Medicare may pay for a health care provider’s help to manage a behavioral health condition if your provider offers the Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model.
Behavioral health conditions include depression, anxiety, and other health conditions.
The Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model is a set of integrated behavioral health services that includes care management support if you have a behavioral health condition. This care management support may include care planning for behavioral health conditions, ongoing assessment of your condition, medication support, counseling, or other treatments that your provider recommends. Your health care provider will ask you to sign an agreement or provide verbal consent for you to get this set of services on a monthly basis.
