The listing below contains facilities that take Medicaid as payment in Iowa. It can be incomplete so if you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact one of our treatment specialists at 1-800-304-2219.

Currently, in the state of Iowa, there are some different drug treatment centers, which are covered by state-funded Medicaid health insurance. Many low-income households are not able to afford addiction services, and Medicaid helps them receive proper help. The Iowa Medical Assistance program offers Medicaid to the people living in Iowa, which is a low-cost or free health insurance. Persons or families who can apply for Medicaid are often those in a low-income bracket, persons with disabilities, women who are pregnant, and the elderly.

However, each state is different, and it is encouraged for anyone who needs health insurance to apply for Medicaid. People struggling with drug and alcohol abuse in Iowa can also use their Medicaid insurance to help pay for treatment at designated Medicaid inpatient or outpatient drug rehabilitation service providers. Medicaid may cover some or all the cost, but the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment to the rehab program they are attending in Iowa. Struggling with a drug problem is difficult, and many addicts are not able to pay for treatment services and have to rely on health insurance such as Medicaid. Getting the proper help is important, and Medicaid can help pay for some of the costs.
