Who pays for treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)?

Most insurance plans cover treatment for anxiety disorders. People who are going to have treatment should check with their own insurance companies to find out about coverage. For people who don't have insurance, local city or county governments may offer treatment at a clinic or health center, where the cost is based on income. Medicaid plans also may pay for OCD treatment.

This answer is based on source information from the National Institute of Mental Health.
