The Affordable Care Act makes access to mental health care easier and more affordable. Up to $50 million has been set aside for community health centers to help low-income citizens get the services they need. Mental health and drug rehab are part of the "10 essentials" regarding Obamacare's main points to reduce health care costs.
The affordable health care act does in fact require insurers to treat mental health. This will help reduce the number of crazies that are running around with guns. I hope that all Republican Party members will take advantage of the mental health treatments. This may improve our country even more than we originally thought.
Yes, Obamacare requires insurers to offer coverage for treatment of mental illness, because Obamacare largely requires everything to be covered. The problem with that is that people are expected to pay large premiums for care that they know they are never going to use. But yes, Obamacare requires full coverage, including of mental illnesses.
Obamacare requires insurers to offer coverage for treatment of mental illness. This is a good thing because those people who have a mental illness that need coverage, and now they will be able to get it because of Obamacare. Without Obamacare, those people would not be able to get the coverage they need.
Obamacare does require insurers to offer coverage for Treatment of Mental Illness. However, not all psychiatrists accepts insurance. That means access to care for the millions of people with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health issues may be
limited to those who can pay for treatment out of their own pockets, despite the law.
Obamacare not only helps to treat more mental illness than before, but it is also making it easier to afford for consumers. Under old insurance laws, insurance companies could change you one type of copay for a medical doctor, but a higher copay for a doctor of mental illness. Under the new law, the two copays must be the same amount, forcing insurance companies to see mental illness in the same light they would see a general practitioner.
No, Obamacare does not offer coverage for the Treatment of Mental Illness. I am insured under Obamacare and when you really find out what it covers for the costs paid, its more than disappointing. The premium are super high with high deductibles and typically 30% coin- insurance. It does not cover the treatment of mental illness.
