Substance Abuse Treatment Covered by MedCost in Mississippi

Medcost is a health insurance provider who provides health insurance plans for employers in Mississippi. The health care plans that an employee can have if their employer has Medcost, can include coverage for the family and individual. Workplace substance abuse is a common problem, and this is why through most health insurance providers who employers have, an employee can access an employee assistance program. An EAP will offer counseling services, and short-term treatment for any type of problem, including substance abuse. Medcost health insurance plans can also help the employee ensure their family will be covered. Struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, especially with a loved one, is not easy, and many families will have to rely on their health insurance coverage to help pay for treatment. A substance abuse disorder can be properly treated, but the addict must access the correct help. Health insurance plans can ensure this is possible, by pointing them in the right direct direction of service providers who can offer their assistance.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
