Whittier, CA. - Medicare

Drug addiction affects every race, age and gender. For drug addicted people 65 years or older, Medicare is an option to pay for some if not all of their drug rehabilitation. Medicare insurance will cover the treatment of alcoholism and drug abuse in both outpatient and inpatient settings, as long as certain requirements are met. The addict must receive services from a Medicare-participating facility or provider. The drug addicted person's doctor notes that the drug or alcohol treatment is medically necessary and that the patient's doctor provides a specific recommended treatment plan. Additionally, Medicare will only cover a total of 190 days in a psychiatric hospital for the individual's entire lifetime.
