Drug and Alcohol Detox & Rehab Centers Covered by Medicaid in Louisiana

Last updated: 21 December 2021


There are some drug and alcohol treatment centers throughout the state of Louisiana, which will accept the state-funded health care Medicaid. Medicaid assists families from low-income homes and with little to no assets to their name. When looking for help for a substance abuse disorder or an addiction problem, it is common for addicts and their families too often turn to their insurance for help.

Medicaid is a low-cost or free health insurance provider for many people living in Louisiana. Medicaid can help pay for treatment at some of the substance abuse rehab services providers in Louisiana. If anyone is wanting to get Medicaid and wishes to know if they are eligible, they can contact Louisiana Medicaid. Medicaid health insurance can be accepted at some of the designated inpatient or outpatient Medicaid drug rehab services in Louisiana. For many addicts, it can be difficult to afford treatment, and they will have to rely on Medicaid to help offset some of the costs involved. Medicaid will pay the drug rehabilitation service provider directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment.
