Happy 65th Birthday-Your Psychotherapy Fee is Reduced.

Posted on November 18th, 2009 by Dr. Blumenfield

The author describes his experience of wishing a patient in psychotherapy a happy 65th birthday and telling the patient that his fee is now reduced since he is now on Medicare. Opting out of Medicare is discussed as well as the implications of new healthcare changes which may discourage psychiatrists from doing psychotherapy.
