Currently, in the state of Nebraska, there are some rehabilitation centers for drugs and alcohol, which will accept state-funded Medicaid health care for services and treatment. Medicaid is a low-cost or free health insurance provider for low-income families or individuals, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and women who are pregnant. The Nebraska Medicaid office provides health insurance for many people living in the state, and Medicaid can be used to help someone who is battling a substance abuse disorder.

Not every drug and alcohol treatment program in Nebraska will accept Medicaid, and people looking for help who have Medicaid should contact the local Medicaid office or the county mental health board to find out which programs accept Medicaid. When Medicaid is used to pay for drug treatment in Nebraska, Medicaid will pay for the service provider directly, and the patient may pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment. Not everyone is able to afford drug rehab, and treatment is needed for any type of addiction, but Medicaid can help those who are eligible for its coverage.

The listing below contains facilities that take Medicaid as payment in Nebraska. It can be incomplete so if you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact one of our treatment specialists at 1-800-304-2219.
