Depending on the state, someone who is covered by Medicaid can have some or all the cost of drug treatment paid for. Medicaid will pay the substance abuse treatment provider in Massachusetts directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment, but this will be different within each state. Medicaid does have certain eligibility requirements, but everyone is encouraged to apply for Medicaid if they need health insurance. Drug and alcohol abuse can be financially devastating, and many addicts have to rely on health insurance to help pay for treatment. Across the state of Massachusetts are many different types of drug and alcohol treatment programs and services, and addicts should ensure they can get the best help they can.
