Medicare is health insurance for people living in Connecticut who are 65 years old or older and for anyone with a disability. When someone is covered by Medicare, they will pay a monthly premium that is based on their income, for example, the less a person's income is, the less their monthly premium will be. Medicare health insurance can help cover treatment for people who are struggling with a substance abuse disorder, drug dependency, addiction, or a mental health problem. Persons struggling with these problems in Connecticut should reach out to local treatment services and programs for help. It is not uncommon for someone who is 65 or older or someone with a disability to struggle with a drug or alcohol problem. However, it can be difficult to pay for drug treatment when you are retired or not working. Medicare health insurance will help ensure that those who have the insurance can get the necessary help they need for drug rehab in Connecticut.
