In some circumstances, Medicaid can pay for a percentage of the treatment, and the patient will have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or what is referred to as a co-payment to cover the rest of the cost. There are many people in the state of Tennessee, who are struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, and it is important that every addict receives an opportunity to get help. Medicaid can give addicts who have the coverage a chance to get the proper drug treatment, they need to overcome the addiction.
