Medicare Addiction Coverage

Retirees can get addiction treatment benefits through Medicare if referred by their physician to either inpatient or outpatient facilities. It is on the recommendation of the physician that benefits would be payable, up to 65 percent of all costs incurred. Inpatient is considered hospitalization and is taken out of the lifetime benefit available to the member if used for treatment. This does not cover a residential, non-hospital setting for treatment, which is the bulk of the programs available to most addicts for treatment.
