5 5 +Mental Health America, 2012 available at Paying for mental health services If you have private insurance: Insurance coverage for seeing a mental health professional works similarly to how coverage works when you see your medical doctor. If the mental health professional you are seeing is a preferred provider in your insurance network, you will generally only have to pay your co-pay. A co-pay could be somewhere around $20 to $40. If your mental health professional is out of network you will have to pay the full amount of the visit and then be reimbursed by your insurance company for the percent of cost that the insurance company will pay. If your plan is privately insured through an employer, Ohio s mental health parity laws mandate that equal coverage (deductibles, co-payments, visit limits, annual spending limits, and lifetime limits) be provided for treatment of mental health conditions as is provided for treatment of other health conditions. If you do not have private insurance: There are a number of other options for receiving mental health services. The Summit County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADM) Board funds several mental health agencies in this region. As a result, many of these agencies are able to offer a range of counseling services, usually at a reduced or free rate or sliding scale for Summit county residents with a low income. Many service providers also accept Medicaid and/or Medicare. Medicaid is a form of public assistance that pays for some health and mental health care costs for those who have low income and fit within certain eligibility groups. Medicare is government-sponsored health insurance for persons over the age of 65 or with certain disabilities. Medicare contains different parts (A, B, C, and D) that will help to pay for different mental health services (inpatient, outpatient, medications). If you think you might be eligible for Medicaid or Medicare, speak with a representative at The Summit County Department of Jobs and Family Services (330) or the Medicare Information Line (800) Free Services: Many community, school, and religious organizations offer free services that could help support your mental health, such as self-help groups and toll-free support hotlines. Check with the providers listed in this guide, the additional resources on the last page, or your local social service agency, religious institution, university/college counseling center, or community center for information on what might be available to you at no cost.
