Medicare and Medicaid for Rehab

If you have a low income, are age 65 or older, or are disabled, you might qualify for these government-subsidized health insurance programs. Medicaid is designed for people who live at or below the federal poverty line, and the qualification process takes into account your annual income and assets as a result.

If you have Medicaid coverage, you can get many rehab services covered, such as therapy, medication, and outpatient care. Medicaid typically does not have associated copayments or deductibles, and prescriptions are also usually free with the program.

Medicare is for adults age 65 and older and those living with disabilities. This program has several parts that pay for different services. Medicare does come with fees, which you can find out about by speaking to a Medicare advocate. To apply for either program, reach out to your local social services office, or dial 211 to reach a social services directory assistant. They’ll be able to point you in the right direction for local assistance programs as well as give you referrals to nearby free and low-cost rehabs.

Private Insurance

State and federal laws dictate that health insurance companies must provide coverage for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment if they are covering medically needed services. Different insurance companies in Illinois have their own policies regarding what services are covered and what patients’ fees are, so reach out to your insurance provider for detailed information about your coverage and fee schedule.
