Eric Garfinkel, Ph.D., CEO of Psychassociates Group and Early Childhood Associates, agreed.
"Many states have no coverage for psychological services to adults. Others are at such a low level that cost of service delivery, documentation and billing exceed the fees paid by the state. In New York and Pennsylvania the fee for one hour of psychiatric service is $36, and Pennsylvania has no coverage for adults," he said. Garfinkel, who chairs the New York State Psychological Association's Insurance Committee and is a member of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association's Insurance Committee, said Medicaid issues are difficult to address on the national level because there is so much inconsistency in legislation and policies from state to state. Often, psychological services are considered "optional" under federal Medicaid law. "This means states have the option of covering or refusing to cover (mental health) as part of their Medicaid program," he said. "We tend to think of Medicaid as being for other people, overlooking the reality that some time or another many of us are likely to depend on Medicaid for some aspect of our own health care," Garfinkel said. "Limiting the activities of psychological services is an extremely shortsighted and inefficient attempt at cost savings. There is really nothing optional about people with mental health needs," he continued. "Failure to provide timely, accessible and appropriate behavioral health care costs society more than it would ever hope to save. It costs more dollars and it costs more lives." Said Garfinkel, "We need to be active as psychologists on both the federal and state levels to ensure that the neediest and most vulnerable among us are able to receive the care they desperately need." Garfinkel made it clear that psychologists would do well to lobby and advocate on behalf of Medicaid recipients in need of mental health care services.
