Finally, I went to the paterater that I was suitable and was declared to have anxiety disorder and depression, and because the cost was quite expensive I had stopped, since I read it turned out that I could cover for psychiatrists. can I go back to the psychiatry that I am suitable for, then how are the steps to be able to get the psychology and how to do so that I do not need to test all sorts to the clinic / puskesmas bpjs. Thank you
Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
That's right National Health Insurance (JKN) from BPJS Health can cover therapy by a mental health specialist (psychiatrist). Like the services of other specialist doctors, to get a psychiatric service, you need to be examined first by a general practitioner at the Puskesmas / Clinic (pratama health facility) where you are registered (usually located near your address). If according to the results of the examination of general practitioners at the Puskesmas / Clinic you really need to get therapy by a psychiatrist, you will be referred to a psychiatrist at the hospital. However, if you do not need to be referred according to the results of a doctor's examination, the general practitioner will provide treatment for anxiety disorders and depression that you experience. You should bring medicines that you have used before. The doctor will explain whether or not you are currently experiencing anxiety disorders and depression. Your doctor will provide therapy that is suitable for the disorder that you are experiencing right now. You will also be asked to control returning to the doctor during treatment. The doctor will evaluate the results of the treatment given.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
