Medicaid, medicare and medi-cal programs are offered to the residents in Mississippi that need healthcare coverage. With a rise in addictions throughout the state, as well as neighboring states, the coverage is needed more often than not for so many.
Now classified as a brain disease, addiction is continuing to be one of those conditions that needs to be cured. When it is able to be cured, you’re then able to enjoy all that comes from the treatment center that you went to for help. There should be better caps on the pharma that users are able to get their hands on, but bills that would normally be passed or have been passed in other states are currently not in the books for Mississippi.
Below is a list of resources that those with Medicaid, medicare and medi-cal insurance programs (not private insurance coverage) are able to go to find the support and help they need for addictions.
