Military Insurance Coverage

Military health insurance in the state of Georgia is provided through the Military Health System, which covers healthcare needs for active-duty service members and retired service members of the United States Military. Drug and alcohol addiction can impact anyone, regardless of the profession, and unfortunately; members of the United States military do struggle with addiction and mental health problems. The health insurance offered to the members of the military can help pay for some of the cost of a drug and alcohol treatment program in Georgia. Tricare is the civilian health insurance provider and is overseen by the Defense Health Agency, and Tricare plans can be accepted at some of the drug and alcohol treatment centers in the state of Georgia. It is important for someone who is battling a drug or alcohol addiction to be able to get the right help, and this may involve inpatient treatment or an intensive outpatient program, or the treatment of opioid addiction.
