Medicare health insurance offers health care plans for people who are 65 years old or older or anyone with a disability. When someone has Medicare health insurance, they will pay a monthly premium based on their income. There are four distinct parts of Medicare, and within the different coverage, someone who is battling a substance abuse disorder can get the drug treatment they need in Washington D.C. Throughout the nation's capital, drug and alcohol addiction impacts people within all age groups and demographics. People who are 65 or older and those struggling with a disability are not exempt from becoming dependent on drugs or alcohol or suffering from mental health problems. It may not always be easy to pay for drug treatment in Washington D.C., and Medicare health insurance can help pay for some of the cost of addiction treatment, or it may cover all the costs involved.
