Medicaid treatment programs for addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Finding a program that will accept Medicaid can be a difficult task when you need treatment for addiction. One thing that you must remember is that Medicaid is a state-funded insurance and only works with the treatment centers that they are contracted with for treatment.
Medicaid and CHIP programs provide health coverage to nearly 60 million Americans, including children, pregnant women, parents, seniors, and individuals with disabilities. In order to participate in Medicaid, federal law requires states to cover certain population groups (mandatory eligibility groups) and gives them the flexibility to cover other population groups (optional eligibility groups). States set individual eligibility criteria within federal minimum standards. States can apply to CMS for a waiver of federal law to expand health coverage beyond these groups.
For eligibility please check with your local DSHS office and see if you qualify for Medicaid insurance.

Affordable Care Act of 2010 Expands Medicaid Eligibility in 2014
Obama Care or the Affordable Healthcare Act has opened the door for many more people to be able to enter a treatment center for addiction. With the Affordable Healthcare Act, people who normally could not afford to enter a treatment center do have options that cover treatment for addiction.
The Affordable Care Act of 2010, signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010, creates a national Medicaid minimum eligibility level of 133% of the federal poverty level ($29,700 for a family of four in 2011) for nearly all Americans under age 65. This Medicaid eligibility expansion goes into effect on January 1, 2014, but states can choose to expand coverage with Federal support anytime before this date-see related Federal Policy Guidance and states that have expanded Medicaid prior to 2014. See Eligibility Provisions in the Affordable Care Act.
Other Eligibility Criteria
There are other non-financial eligibility criteria that are used in determining Medicaid eligibility. In order to be eligible for Medicaid, individuals need to satisfy federal and state requirements regarding residency, immigration status, and documentation of U.S. citizenship.
Medicaid coverage may start retroactively for up to 3 months prior to the month of application, if the individual would have been eligible during the retroactive period had he or she applied then. Coverage generally stops at the end of the month in which a person no longer meets the requirements for eligibility.
