Yes, Medicaid pays for drug rehab services as part of its behavioral health benefits. Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance program for low-income individuals and families.
Under Medicaid, individuals can receive coverage for substance abuse treatment, including inpatient and outpatient rehab programs, medication-assisted treatment, and other addiction-related services.
The level of coverage and specific services covered may vary depending on the state and the individual’s circumstances. It’s important to check with your local Medicaid office to understand the specific coverage and any out-of-pocket costs associated with drug rehab services.
In addition, some rehab programs may offer financial assistance or sliding scale fees based on an individual’s income or ability to pay. It’s important to explore all available resources and options when seeking drug rehab services, including Medicaid coverage and other financial assistance programs.
