Using Medicaid for Substance Abuse Treatment
Medicaid is a federal- and state-funded public insurance program designed to assist those people who cannot otherwise access coverage.
Generally, this coverage is available to individuals below the age of 19 and above the age of 65. It is also available to people with minor children as well as anyone who is pregnant. Medicaid may also be available to individuals who fall within a specified range of income, depending on the size of the family.
As with private insurance policies, Medicaid typically covers some or all of the treatments associated with rehab and recovery.
Can You Use Medicaid for Drug or Alcohol Rehab in Idaho?
Each state sets its own Medicaid standards and coverages. Consequently, eligibility can vary from state to state.
In addition to the criteria outlined above, Medicaid may also be available to Idaho residents who have been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, as well as anyone who meets the Social Security Administration standards for blindness or disability.
You may be able to use this coverage for a variety of outpatient recovery treatments, including medical detox, rehab-related medications, counseling, etc. In addition to Medicaid, the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare offers other types of state-funded health coverage assistance.
