Many health insurance plans provide coverage for drug and alcohol addiction. For those that do not have insurance coverage for any reason, it can seem impossible to get the care you need. The key to remember is that you should not just give up. Take the time to learn about the options available to help you. At Hickory Treatment Centers, we encourage you to reach out to learn more about our funding solutions that may be just what you need.
Qualifying for Medicaid
One of the options that may be available to some who do not have insurance is to reach out to Medicaid. This is a state-based program that can cover the cost of your health insurance needs if you qualify for the program. It is often need-based, and having a lower income may help you qualify for a wide range of supportive programs. Be sure to reach out to the local Medicaid office to learn more about your ability to qualify for these programs.
Other Government Programs
It is a good idea to look at other state and local programs that may help you. Reach out to a treatment center. They will have access to this information and will often help you determine what type of care may fit your needs. You can also seek out your local health department for insight into care providers available, including grants that may help. Some behavioral health departments at hospitals can also provide insight on available programs.
Some people may qualify for SAMHSA Block Grants. These are programs meant to help specific groups in society that may need a bit of help, including those who are pregnant. This may be one way for you to get into a treatment plan that is available to you.
Finding Ways to Get the Funds You Need
If you do not qualify for these programs, there are a few other things to consider. Again, be sure to reach out to a treatment center that can offer insight and guidance to you about available programs and funding. Here are some additional things to think about:
- Try fundraising. If you have a lot of people that want to help you, and each gives a bit, you may be able to cover the cost of your treatment needs.
- Reach out to private donors. If you know someone that may be willing to help you, ask for that help. While it can seem difficult to do, people often do not know that their friends and family need this type of financial support.
- Ask your employer for help. They may be willing to help cover the cost of your care.
You may be able to tap into private funds and programs within your local area. Your care is important, and it should not be something you don’t get help for because of cost. A local treatment center may be able to help you keep the costs under control, too.
