Opioid use disorder treatment services

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)

 covers opioid use disorder treatment services in opioid treatment programs. 

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay nothing for these services if you get them from an opioid treatment program that's enrolled in Medicare, and the Part B

deductible [glossary]

applies. Medicare pays doctors and other providers for office-based opioid use disorder treatment, including management, care coordination, psychotherapy and counseling activities.   

Talk to your doctor or other health care provider to find out where to go for these services. You can also visit Medicare.gov/contacts and select “Opioid Treatment Program Services” to find a program near you.


What it is

The services include medication (like methadone and buprenorphine), counseling, drug testing, and individual and group therapy. Medicare covers counseling and therapy services in person and by virtual delivery (using 2-way audio/video communication technology, like a computer).
