Navigating the Mental Health System

Understanding the mental health system can be complicated since there isn’t a national healthcare system. It varies between states and communities. Here are some tips to help you:

Know your insurance: Contact your health insurance provider to understand your coverage. Mental health services may differ from other medical care. Find out about outpatient, inpatient, and day programs coverage, copayments, and deductibles. Also, check if your insurance is an HMO or PPO, and get a list of providers that accept your insurance.

Compare provider charges and insurance rates: Understand how much your insurance will pay for a service (the allowable fee) and compare it to the provider’s charges. Reimbursement is usually a percentage of the allowable fee, which might be less than the provider’s fee. With a PPO, you may get some reimbursement even if the provider is out of network.

Finding the Right Therapist for Your Child:
Choosing the right therapist for your child is essential. It’s about the relationship and the therapist’s ability to provide good care. Consider two key factors:

  • The connection between the therapist and your child.
  • The therapist’s competence in caring for your child.
  • Behavioral treatments take time, so be patient. Slow progress doesn’t necessarily mean a poor match with the therapist, but it might require more time. Talk to your therapist about the diagnosis and treatment plan, and don’t hesitate to ask questions until you fully understand the approach being used for your child’s care.
