Yes, alcohol rehab is covered by Medicare. Medicare is a federal health insurance program that provides coverage to individuals who are 65 years of age or older, as well as those with certain disabilities or medical conditions.
Under Medicare Part A, inpatient care at a Medicare-approved rehabilitation facility is covered. This includes hospital stays for alcohol detoxification and rehabilitation.
Under Medicare Part B, outpatient care at a Medicare-approved rehabilitation facility is covered. This includes visits with a physician or other healthcare provider, as well as individual and group counseling sessions.
Medicare also covers prescription medications used in alcohol addiction treatment, including medication-assisted treatment.
It’s important to check with your specific Medicare plan to determine the extent of coverage for alcohol rehab and related services. Additionally, alcohol rehab centers may offer assistance with insurance verification and billing.
