How can I get mental health coverage?

Who is this for?

Learn more about getting care.

If you have one of our Medicare plans, this page will tell you how to get coverage for mental health care.

If you need to see a mental health specialist, we want to make sure the process is as easy as possible.

You don’t need a referral from your primary care physician if you’re a member of one of our BCN AdvantageSM HMO-POS or HMO plans.

Your visit will be covered with a copay if you have any of our Medicare Advantage plans. If you have Original Medicare, you’ll pay 20 percent of the cost for each visit. If you have a Medigap plan, it might cover some of that cost.

If you’re struggling with a mental health issue or substance abuse, you can call our help line.
