Medicaid state health insurance currently covers services in many different drug and alcohol treatment and health facilities within the state of Illinois. Medicaid is a low-cost or free health insurance provider for many Americans living in Illinois, and Medicaid will help pay for some types of inpatient and outpatient drug treatment in the state. Anyone who is covered by Medicaid in Illinois and is unsure of what will be covered can contact the Illinois Medical Assistance program to check what substance abuse treatment services in the state accept Medicaid.

Drug and alcohol addiction is a devastating problem, and many families with a loved one battling addiction may not be able to afford treatment. Because of this, these families and individuals with this coverage will have to rely on Medicaid to help pay for treatment. When this happens, Medicaid will pay the service provider directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment. Each drug treatment program in Illinois is different from what may be accepted for insurance, and what percent the patient will have to pay.
