Medicare Coverage of Mental Health and Substance Abuse

Medicare Accepted for Mental Health, Alcohol & Drug Rehab

There are many misconceptions about the coverage of mental health and substance abuse. This section will dispel these myths and provide insight on the Medicare coverage of mental health and substance abuse.

Medicare is a federal program that is available to everyone who has reached the age of 65 or older, to those who meet certain eligibility requirements related to their disability, and to those with end-stage renal disease.

Question: Does Medicare Cover Rehab and Mental Health Services

Medicare covers a number of mental health and substance abuse services, including inpatient and outpatient treatment, counseling, and medication.

If you are under the age of 65 and need Medicare coverage for mental health or substance abuse services, you can get Medicare coverage if:

  • You have a medical condition that is caused by alcohol or drug use.
  • You have been diagnosed with alcohol or drug dependence.
  • You need addiction treatment as part of your care for a medical condition other than addiction.
