Does anyone know if Medicare will cover anti-depression prescriptions? Are there any special conditions, tests, or are only particular drugs covered? I know a lot of insurance companies don't cover depression, and I was wondering what Medicare's policy was.

There are many different Medicare drug plans and the drugs covered by each plan vary, so you'll have to find a plan that does cover antidepressants. I'm pretty sure that they will be covered if you find the right plan, though, because Medicare covers any medications which are "medically-necessary," and I'm sure psychiatrists will vouch for the drugs they prescribe being necessary.

Some of the newer and more expensive medications may not be covered in the formulary but most anti-depressants and other psychotropic medications are covered in the Medicare D plans.
