Medicare is funded through the federal
government, and at present the law funding Medicare does not permit
Licensed Mental Health Counselors or Licensed Marriage & Family
Therapists (my two professional licenses) to bill Medicare for services.
If you are seeking mental health services and have Medicare coverage,
you will need to seek services from a psychiatrist (DO or MD), Licensed
Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), licensed clinical psychologist, or Advanced
Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP).
Each time the funding
bill comes up for renewal, LMHCs and LMFTs lobby Congress to include our
professions in the funding bill. However, at this time, we are still not able
to serve Medicare clients.
