Does anyone know if insurance pays for caregivers for psychiatric services. I know it's a long shot. Im just so burnt out lately. We mainly just need help with our daughter after school. Any ideas please chime in!

If your child qualifies for respite then yes. Though if your child is like really violent, then maybe not.

I bet they could qualify for specialized respite if the child is violent. So they could have someone come in who is trained to deal with any violent situation that may arise due to psychological issues.

OP, I don't see why not. Check with your policy and see if they cover respite care (that's the care you're looking for) and it may even say in there under what circumstances they do or do not cover it. Or you could just go to the child's Dr and ask that they write a script for it basically. *hugs* I hope they cover it for you. I know parents with children with psychiatric disorders really deserve a break. It's exhausting in so many ways I'm sure I don't even understand. Keep us updated momma

Thank you guys for all the advice. Unfortunately my insurance does not cover any of this. We are apply for SSI for her. We just received SSI for my other daughter who is disabled. We should hear something back from them soon. Thank you guys for all the advice.
