On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines,’ hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Yehudah Alcabes discuss the frustrating insurance landscape that limits mental health care in Maryland.

The Provider Problem

Low insurance reimbursement rates discourage mental health professionals from accepting in-network patients, limiting the number of therapists and psychiatrists available to those with insurance coverage.

The Insurance Squeeze

Insurance companies can easily deny claims for ongoing mental health treatment, prematurely ending care even when it’s crucial for recovery.

The Burden on Patients

The lack of in-network mental health care forces Maryland residents into difficult choices – paying high out-of-pocket costs or forgoing the treatment they need.
