Medicaid rehabs have made it considerably easier for sufferers of SUD of limited or no means to find an effective treatment for their drug or alcohol abuse. Recent changes in health care legislation gave the Medicare program an infusion of much-needed financial resources, which it has passed down to states that wanted to participate and offer their residents more options for affordable addiction care. The opioid crisis has taken the country by storm, affecting virtually every state in the union—as a result, more and more Medicare resources are going toward funding the treatment needs of low-income and undeserved populations.
Medicaid programs may cover a variety of clinical treatment services, including medical detox to help patients overcome their withdrawal symptoms safely and comfortably, as well as several types of behavioral rehab, specifically outpatient and IOP. These rehab programs allow patients to attend multiple weekly treatment sessions without having to stay at the facility in which they’re receiving their care. Medicaid seldom if ever covers the cost of inpatient treatment due to the higher costs involved with the process. In some states, Medicaid may also cover the cost of Suboxone therapy and other types of medication-assisted treatment. To find out more about what Medicaid covers in your state, we offer a full state-by-state breakdown of coverage scope and care services.
Seniors are the fastest-growing population in the United States, today’s baby boomers are quickly becoming tomorrow’s senior citizens and bringing their substance use habits with them into their golden years. The cultural and lifestyle shifts from the previous generation combined with the universal physical and psychological rigors of the aging process mean that present and future seniors need more accessible care resources for drug or alcohol abuse; more and more Medicare rehabs are stepping into this gap.
Medicare rehabs are rehab facilities that accept Medicare in an effort to make treatment more affordable to patients on a fixed income.
Medicare covers medical detox and several distinct type of behavioral rehab, including outpatient, IOP and, in limited circumstances, residential and partial hospitalization programs (PHP). Medical detox is a particularly urgent and potentially life-saving measure for senior citizens whose bodies have already started to break down due to prolonged and untreated drug or alcohol abuse. Outpatient programs frequently covered by Medicare offer quality care combined with independence and flexibility. Patients attend weekly treatment sessions and undergo comprehensive behavioral therapy, including group dynamics, counseling, and more. For patients on Medicare, their rehab may be aligned with ongoing addiction-related medical care and medication assistance.
