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

Currently, in the state of Minnesota, there are some drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers that will accept state-funded health care Medicaid. These facilities are located all over the state and offer different services in each. The Medical Assistance program in Minnesota provides Medicaid to many people and families living in the state. Medicaid is a free or low-cost health insurance provider, and Medicaid can help cover the cost of drug and alcohol treatment.

When Medicaid is used to pay for substance abuse, Medicaid will pay the service provider directly, and the patient seeking out drug rehab may have to pay some out-of-pocket expenses or what is referred to as a co-payment. It is important for anyone who is covered by Medicaid and is struggling with drug treatment to get the proper help. Drug and alcohol treatment services in the state of Minnesota include both inpatient and outpatient drug rehabilitation programs, some of which are designated to accept Medicaid health insurance. Substance abuse is difficult to deal with, and many families and addicts will struggle to pay for treatment and will have to rely on health insurance such as Medicaid to pay for drug treatment.
