Tricare health insurance is a health insurance provider for members of the United States Military, their dependents, and also retirees and civilians. Within Puerto Rico, there are some drug and alcohol rehab programs that do accept Tricare health insurance, and these health benefits packages do help cover some of the costs involved in drug rehab. Health insurance can cover the majority of the treatment costs, and may in some cases cover living expenses at residential drug rehab programs, but this may not always be the case. In some situations, a patient may have to pay a basic fee for living costs, but this can be sought out when an addict and or their family gets in contact with a drug rehab facility. Health insurance has helped many addicts get the help they need, especially addicts and their families who may not be financially situated to afford drug treatment. Some drug rehab programs are low-cost treatment facilities, but if an addict or their family is living below the poverty line, even this cost may be too much to cover.
