Are you over the age of 65 or have a disability and need help with a substance abuse problem? Medicare might be an option to help cover the costs. Medicare, not to be confused with Medicaid, is the federally administered social insurance program. In 2010, over 45 million people in the U.S. received health services with the help of Medicare, most of those people were over 65. Medicare is not available to everyone, mostly to younger people with disabilities and people over 65. Medicare may not always cover the full cost of health services and the patient may be required to pay the difference. Medicare can provide access to health care that may not have been available for some people. In 2010, Colorado had a lower than national average of people enrolled in Medicare at 12% according to State Health Facts. If you qualify for Medicare, Medicare Part A might be able to cover some of the cost of inpatient care, while Medicare Part B might be able to cover some of the cost of outpatient care.
According to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the rate of admissions from illicit drug abuse or prescription drug abuse (for those above 65 years) grew by 96% between 1997 and 2008. If you or someone that you know is over 65 or have a disability and they are suffering from substance abuse including prescription drug abuse, please visit our website for more information of facilities in Colorado that accept Medicare insurance.
