Mental wellness annual exams are covered for commercial Massachusetts plans

An act addressing barriers to care for mental health

In accordance with Massachusetts law, commercial Massachusetts plans will provide coverage for:

  • An annual mental health wellness examination performed by a licensed mental health professional or a primary care provider (as part of an annual preventive visit). The exam will be covered with no patient cost sharing. If you are covered under a PPO or POS plan and you use out-of-network benefits, standard out-of-network cost sharing will apply.
