We want to ensure you get the treatment needed immediately. Within Texas, Medicare health insurance is a healthcare provider for people 65 years old or older and provides coverage for people with a disability. Medicare is affordable health insurance that is available with a monthly premium, which is based on the recipient's income. Anyone struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction in Texas who is covered by Medicare can use this health insurance to help pay for the cost of drug treatment. Within the state, some drug and alcohol rehab can accept Medicare, but not every rehab center in Texas will take Medicare. This type of health insurance provides affordable substance abuse treatment options for the elderly and people with a disability. It can be difficult to struggle with an addiction, and people who are retired or not working, may not be able to afford the treatment they need, but Medicare will be able to help.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
