The eligibility requirement for Medicaid is different for each state, but often those in Maryland who are in a low-income bracket, persons with a disability, pregnant women, or the elderly will qualify for Medicaid. When Medicaid is used to help pay for drug treatment, Medicaid will pay the service provider directly, and the patient getting the help may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment. Struggling with drug addiction is difficult, and many families in Maryland who have a loved one with a substance abuse disorder will have to rely on Medicaid to help pay for treatment. Throughout the state of Maryland are many different types of treatment options and there may be designated inpatient or outpatient Medicaid service providers.
