I would like to start a petition to Petition health ins especially Medicaid and Medicare to pay for medication assisted rehab! Of course there should be stipulations as far as meeting group requirements and councilor meeting requirements and last but not least pass any and all drug screens! By meeting these you let the ins company know that you are serious about your recovery and not doing it for the wrong reason! I would like to get everybody's input on how I need to go about doing this and get it recognized! Any and all help and advice will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!!
Squbbles

I'm sure it's something that most patients would want to sign.

Given that Medicaid/Medicare is accepted as payment in some states, it seems reasonable to think it should be accepted in all states.

People have having huge problems being able to stay in treatment for purely financial reasons, and this could really help a lot of people.
