  5. Does medicare cover drug rehab?
Asked: 2018-07-06 08:52:03
I feel there is no other solution but to put him in rehab for his abuse of prescription drugs, will medicare cover it?

Although doctor treatment plans are necessary for drug rehab (meaning- your doctor must claim that rehab is needed and set up a treatment plan for you) medicare will cover drug rehabilition.

There are different levels of Medicare, so its not a straight answer. Its certain that it covers some form of treatment for addicts, but whether that is inpatient rehab or some other kind of treatment is determined by the kind of policy you have. Part A almost certainly does cover hospitalized recovery, and if youre an alcoholic or heroin addict, then you should really go through an inpatient program. Other drugs can be detoxed at home, but you can get some support from Medicare.

Thankfully, medicare paid for my wifes drug rehab. At first we didn’t know if it would but got her to the treatment place for admission immediately when she said she was ready to go. We have medicare for health insurance and had no problems getting coverage for the services she recieved.

Medicare does have some options for treatment and recovery. It may not cover a stay in a luxury facility for a few months, but you definitely can get some form of medical help covered, whether that is medicine for your withdrawal, counseling, support or . If you cant understand your policy, simply call one of these facilities and they will advise.

Yep, nowadays, thanks to Obama, pre-existing conditions such as addiction are covered under our insurance. You may not want to attend an inpatient facility but if you look for drug rehab near me, you will also have some options that simply offer outpatient support or can assist you with a home detox.
