Are you over the age of 65 and suffering from drug addiction or substance abuse? Don't know how you can afford to pay for treatment? You might be eligible for some assistance through Medicare. The primary recipients of Medicare are people over the age of 65 or younger people with disabilities. According to State Health Facts, there were 1,256,047 people enrolled in Medicare in Georgia in 2011.
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, amongst people 60 years or older, prescription drug abuse was just as pervasive as marijuana use. For people over the age of 50, marijuana and prescription drugs are the two most commonly abused substances. Males are more likely to use marijuana than females, but females are more likely to use prescription drugs than males. If you abuse any drugs, not just marijuana or prescription drugs, 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 treatment. If you are considering Medicare as an option to pay for some of your treatment, you will need to make sure that treatment is done through a registered Medicare provider.
