"The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. It's administered by states and funded jointly by states and the federal government," said Dr. Sharma. "Sadly, some people do not qualify for health insurance at all because they aren't considered to be 'poor enough' to receive coverage under Medicaid. How can people who can't afford treatment, but aren't covered by Medical or Medicaid for certain mental health and addiction services pay for their treatment?" To hear the answer, click here.
