My friend Pauli weighs in on what psychiatric care ends up costing in the United States. God forbid if you need hospitalization.
Medical Insurance Coverage
Mental health insurance coverage is much more limited than standard medical, which generally involves an out of pocket co-pay for “in network providers” of $15 to $25 for an office visit. Most annual lab tests are covered in full, while certain procedures may require a 20% co-insurance payment or go towards an annual deductible which can run anywhere from $500 to $5,000.
