Medicaid is one of the most common means of state funding for addiction treatment centers. It’s the primary source through which patients with no or limited means get the help they need for their alcohol or drug dependency. Medicaid is an ideal option for those who need alcohol or drug treatment but don’t have any private health insurance.
These programs generally cover detox (medically supervised withdrawal management) as well as outpatient treatment centers. In limited cases, Medicaid may fund inpatient or residential treatment facilities, but outpatient coverage is more common due to the cost differential. Data from Medicaid indicates that nearly 12 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries over 18 suffer from substance use disorder (SUD). If you or your loved one are among these numbers, help is only a phone call away.
What Does My Medicaid Insurance Cover?
Medicaid-funded substance use disorder treatment varies from state to state. Different states have more expansive coverage than others. One universal element of Medicaid coverage, however, is medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder.
To increase access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders (OUD), the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities (SUPPORT) Act requires states to provide Medicaid coverage of certain drugs and biological products, and related counseling services and behavioral therapy.
These drugs may include methadone, Suboxone® (buprenorphine and naloxone), or Vivitrol® (monthly injectable naltrexone). Medicaid will also cover behavioral rehab, including group therapy and individualized psychological counseling.
