Medicare Insurance Drug And Alcohol Treatment Programs In Alaska

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Medicare health insurance is available to anyone who is over the age of 65 and for persons with disabilities. This type of health insurance is done with a monthly premium and is based on the person's income, for example, people who earn less will pay lower premiums. Persons with Medicare coverage in Alaska can use this insurance to help treat a substance abuse disorder or any type of addiction. Persons with disabilities and those who are 65 or older do suffer from mental health problems and substance abuse issues and will require proper drug treatment in Alaska. Within the four different parts of Medicare, clients in Alaska can get coverage for hospital stays, such as hospital inpatient programs, and can cover a certain amount of days without a co-payment. Many people living in the larger communities and towns in Alaska are battling drug addiction, and for some, will have to rely on their Medicare coverage to help pay for treatment.

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.

He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute.
