Medicare and Medicaid

There are two government health insurance programs for those that can’t afford and/or don’t qualify for private insurance. Medicaid is income-based health insurance, called Medi-Cal in California, and Medicare is for those age 65 and older or those living with a disability. Both programs are similar in that they dramatically lower the cost of insurance, but they have different covered services and fees.

Medi-Cal typically covers the cost of all medical care, as long as it qualifies for payment. There are often no fees for care or prescription medication, though your plan details may differ from the next person.

Medicare is a health insurance coverage program for people aged 65 and older or disabled. This program pays for various services in outpatient programs or residential rehab centers, such as:

  • Telehealth services for online doctors appointments and assessments
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) such as methadone or suboxone
  • Substance abuse and depression screenings
  • Inpatient treatment and partial hospitalization programs

There are fees associated with inpatient rehab, such as a $1,600 deductible (in 2023) and co-insurance fees after two months of treatment.5 Medicare will not cover the cost of a private room or nurse. Also, it’s important to note that if you receive rehab services in a psychiatric hospital instead of a general hospital, Medicare will only cover services for 190 days during your lifetime.
