Abstract

In the United States, major financing for the healthcare for older adults comes from Medicare and Medicaid programs. Recent healthcare policies and legislations appear to have a major impact on the financing of healthcare for the elderly. In this chapter we review important aspects of Medicare and Medicaid and also recent policies and legislation that clinicians caring for older adults with psychiatric disorders should be aware of so that they can provide better care for their clients.
