This National Survey on Drug Use and Health report focuses on how individuals from 2005 to 2009 who received mental health services in the past year paid for services. One-third of individuals who received outpatient mental health services in the past year indicated that most of the cost for those services was paid by private health insurance; 43.7 percent of those who received inpatient mental health services indicated that most of the costs were paid for by public insurance (Medicaid and Medicare). “Self or family member” was the main source of payment for 26.2 percent of adults receiving outpatient mental health services and 18.8 percent of those receiving inpatient mental health services.
