Is the medication expensive?

Medications differ in price and in some cases can be expensive. Most common psychiatric medications are paid for by insurance plans and HUSKY. If your family is getting HUSKY/Medicaid coverage in CT, ask the Behavioral Health Partnership (BHP) if the medicine is covered, and if not, what is the cost of the prescribed medication to you and your family. For those with private insurance, it is best to ask your private insurance carrier. If you do not have health insurance you may want to ask your family doctor about your options.
