Does Insurance Cover Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Boca Raton?

Yes! Most private insurance plans and government-funded plans cover some, if not all, rehab-related services.

Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE (for military personnel) cover a full range of rehab services, including inpatient and outpatient care, therapy, and medications.

Medicaid for Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Medicaid is a health plan provided by the government for low-income and disabled people of all ages. The program is available for individuals who are:

  • A resident of the state, U.S. national, U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien
  • Low-income and without other options for health insurance
  • Pregnant, blind, disabled, or in a household with someone with a disability
  • Caring for a child under 18
  • 65 or older

Medicare for Drug and Alcohol Rehab

People 65 and over and those with certain medical conditions are eligible for Medicare. This government-funded plan covers most costs of hospitalization and a wide range of outpatient and medical services related to drug and alcohol rehab. Here is how the program works:

  • As a Medicare recipient, you’ll pay a monthly premium that’s based on your income.
  • Medicare pays 80% of covered services, so you’ll be responsible for covering the rest out-of-pocket or through supplemental insurance.
  • You can get a Medigap plan from an insurance provider to cover costs not paid by Medicare, which may include specialized programs or telemedicine, in addition to the 20% not covered for basic services.

Private Insurance for Drug and Alcohol Rehab

How does private insurance work? Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • All group and individual insurance plans offered in the annual Affordable Care Act marketplace are required to treat addiction treatment as an essential benefit.
  • Health insurers must provide equivalent benefits for both medical and addiction-related treatments, per the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA).
  • Individual and employer-funded plans may limit their coverage for rehab, if they are not offered through the ACA marketplace.
  • Private rehabs set their own policies on the payment method they accept, so you need to confirm whether costs are covered by your plan.
