Insurance and Rehab Costs

If you’re worried about how you’re going to pay for addiction treatment coverage, know that the Affordable Care Act made it mandatory for insurance companies to provide coverage for drug treatment/addiction treatment services, so you might be eligible. This includes Medicaid, Medicare, private coverage, military insurance, and state health insurance. It will be very important that you know the terms in your policy, however. Some policies will only cover 30 days of inpatient treatment. Additionally, a health insurance marketplace might be a good place to begin if you need health insurance coverage for addiction treatment.
