Customer Question

Does Medicaid (ACCESS sp! in Arizona) cover outpatient ECT. My son is seriously depressed and expresses suicidal ideation. Pharmaceuticals and medicines do very little for him. I have felt profoundly depressed in my past and gone througt ECT 6 separate times generally with great results. I don't (obviously) want to lose my son.
