Medicaid does not cover all services associated with addiction treatment, so it is necessary to understand coverage before your treatment begins. If you are looking for Medicaid Covered Drug Rehab, we can help. Lighthouse Network can put you in contact with many Medicaid funded drug rehab programs, particularly in the states of Georgia, Texas and Florida.

Medicaid was designed to help low income individuals and families get the health care services they need. The program varies by state and income, so one person’s coverage might not be the same as the next person’s. In general, Medicaid now usually covers drug rehab and addiction treatment, screening, health visits, and family counseling. It will also pay for some of the costs associated with medical detox, inpatient treatment, and aftercare, but these benefits vary. In order to fully understand what Medicaid will and will not cover, contact a Lighthouse Network Care Guide today and let our experienced advisors help.

Medicare Covered Drug Rehab is available to all adults over the age of 65, and to many individuals that suffer from ongoing mental health disorders and disabilities. Coverage differs from individual to individual, based on the person’s needs and Medicare plan.

Medicare benefits can be confusing, and it can be difficult to find treatment centers that actually accept Medicare payment for drug rehab. Sometimes Medicare pays for only a portion of a person’s bill, or will cover treatment for a certain number of days. Because Medicare can only be used at certain types of facilities, many drug rehab programs do not qualify to accept this type of payment. Lighthouse Network can work with you to find the facility that will accept your Medicare payment, and will provide you with the services you require.
