My wife and I just got on medicaid for health insurance. She thinks she needs rehab but is worried that medicaid wont cover it.

Do a search for drug rehabs near me and most of them will tell you whether they accept Medicaid or not. The fact is that many of them do now. Under Obamacare, pre-existing conditions (which include addiction) now have to be covered, so even if you were refused previously, you will be able to get some help now.

Whether or not medicaid covers rehab will ultimately depend on the rehab facility you go to. When I went to rehab I was on medicaid, it took a little bit to look around and find one that accepted it though.

Medicaid should cover both inpatient as well as outpatient rehab.

Medicaid certainly covers some services for certain people so teenagers, the elderly, pregnant and also people within a certain service bracket. In some states, Medicaid isnt accepted for inpatient rehab but there are still services available screening, intervention and support of some kind is available for those suffering from addiction.

Since the Affordable Care act came in, pre-existing conditions such as drug and alcohol addiction now must be covered under insurance. However this doesnt mean that Medicaid covers rehab. In some states it does, and it also has different levels, which can be difficult to understand, so Part A covers hospital stays, which include rehab, and Part B may cover some of it, or at least offer co-payment. Part C and D are different, mostly covering medicines and outpatient expenses. Its worth checking out local rehab centers so you can see what each offer in terms of detox, withdrawal and recovery and seeing what your Medicaid covers.

If you are eligible for Medicaid for other services, then you will have access to treatment services and help. Its estimated that around 21.5 million people suffer from some sort of addiction or substance abuse illness, yet only 2.5 million people have received treatment and for many people, the cost is prohibitive. However there are provisions for those on Medicaid, so even if you are searching for an inpatient rehab near me that doesnt accept it, there will be some form of services offered to help you beat the addiction.
