Obamacare Could Help Addicts in Indiana
States are assessing the complexity and the cost of the federal health care law. Many legislatures have a dilemma of trying to decide on expanding Medicaid or the state’s own health plan to bring medical coverage to more low-income residents. It appears that the expansion of Medicaid in Indiana could have an estimated 38,264 addicts and alcoholics become eligible for addiction treatment in 2014. Even more exciting is that addiction would be treated under the proposed insurance the same as physical conditions.
State officials are worried that Indiana isn’t ready to meet the needs of an expanded addiction/alcoholism caseload. Addiction treatment has seen a significant downsizing in recent decades as insurance companies have cut back on more costly inpatient coverage. The fewer patients eligible for insurance coverage has meant fewer mental health professionals specializing in treatment and fewer facilities offering effective care. It is truly exciting for addicts/alcoholics who would benefit from intense treatment that has been unavailable to them for too long.
