Here is the medicare publication which outlines the benefits given to
Medicare recipients concerning mental health.

All the information that I found concerning Medicaid was different
depending on which state I found the information was on. I'll try to
find the link for the state that you're in if you post it in a
clarification. Thanks

In Georgia, mental health care covered by Medicaid is different than
coverage for other healthcare needs.  Since 1998, GA Medicaid has
functioned in a managed care environment in which services need to be
pre-approved prior to treatment rendered.  However, I'm not sure how
this compares to other state Medicaid programs, or to Medicare.
