There are currently just over twelve different drug addiction treatment centers in Idaho, which will accept Medicaid state health insurance for their services. Medicaid assists people with low income with little to no assets to their name. Drug and alcohol treatment services in Idaho includes some programs that will accept health insurance. Through the Idaho Medicaid Program, people who are eligible for this coverage can get help at inpatient and outpatient Medicaid drug treatment programs.

Medicaid is a low-cost or free health insurance provider for many people and families living in Idaho. Each state has different requirements for eligibility, but typically, people in a low-income bracket, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and women who are pregnant are eligible for coverage, but everyone is encouraged to apply. Because substance abuse addiction can be financially devastating, many families in Idaho who have Medicaid will rely on this insurance to help offset the cost involved. When someone uses Medicaid to pay for treatment, Medicaid will pay the service provider directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense. If anyone covered under Medicaid is unsure of what is covered, they can contact the Idaho Medicaid Program.
