Drug and Alcohol Detox & Rehab Centers Covered by Medicaid in Virginia

Within the state of Virginia, there are some drugs and alcohol treatment centers that do accept Medicaid health insurance to help cover the cost of rehab. The Medical Assistance Program in Virginia helps the residents of Virginia get Medicaid health insurance, which is a low-cost or free health insurance for those who are eligible. Medicaid health insurance can help people pay for drug and alcohol treatment services in Virginia.

Not every drug treatment facility in the state will take Medicaid, but there will be some inpatient and outpatient drug rehabilitation programs in Virginia that will work with Medicaid health insurance. When someone uses Medicaid health insurance to pay for treatment, Medicaid will pay the service provider directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or what is often referred to as a co-payment. Anyone can apply for Medicaid, and each state does have different eligibility requirements. Medicaid health insurance can give an addict a chance to be able to get the proper help they need to overcome his or her addiction.
