Using Medicare for Drug or Alcohol Treatment
Medicare is a federal health insurance program for those who are 65 and older, as well as those with specific health issues. The Medicare program offers high-quality medical care to seniors all over the country, with over 90 million Americans covered through Medicare Parts A, B, or Medicare Advantage (Part C).1

Medicare rehab coverage will depend on your specific plan and whether you have Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan. Understanding what parts of addiction treatment Medicare covers and how to access these beenfits can help you find treatment and live a healthier life in recovery.
