Yes, Medicare Part B covers mental health doctor visits (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, therapists, addiction centers). Medicare will also cover counseling if your counselor accepts Medicare assignment. You can also get one depression screening each year, group and family counseling, psychiatric evaluations, medication management, injections, yearly well-visits, and partial hospitalization with Part B. If you need mental health hospitalization, Medicare Part A will provide coverage for up to 190 days.
