Having a chronic disease like substance addiction is difficult for the sufferer. However, the consequences of addiction can be very grave for both the person suffering from the disease as well as friends, family and employers. It is important for people to seek help if they believe they have a substance abuse or addiction problem, however, some find the cost daunting. If you are covered by Medicare, you may have some financial help when seeking treatment. Medicare might be able to help cover some of the costs of your rehabilitation under certain circumstances: if you receive your substance abuse treatment or rehabilitation from a Medicare-participating provider; you are given a treatment plan by a doctor; and the doctor states that it is medically necessary for you to receive the treatment and services.
Medicare is a social insurance program funded by the US government. Medicare guarantees health insurance to Americans who fit certain criteria such as people over the age of 65 and young people with disabilities. According to Mathematica Policy Research, 15% of people in Kansas are covered by Medicare insurance. Most of these people are over the age of 65 years. If you suffer from a drug addiction or substance abuse problem and you have Medicare insurance, it is worth looking into Medicare-participating rehabilitation and substance abuse treatment facilities.
