Are mental health needs shareable?

Needs related to mental health may be eligible for sharing based on the circumstances of the need.

Inpatient psychiatric care due to involuntary commitment, and the treatment for injuries and detectable organic agents causing cognitive disabilities are shareable. All medication, prescribed or not, administered during inpatient hospital stays will be shareable.

Psychotropic medication to treat chemical imbalances not demonstrable by lab tests is not shareable except as part of an involuntary commitment, though, other types of psychiatric care or services are shareable.

While psychological/counseling services are not shareable, KNEW's membership includes access to professional counseling services. All members of the KNEW community will have three hours of free counseling per year, per household member. Additional behavioral health services are available through KNEW Health's 24/7 Teladoc service after the initial three hours.
