Anne Arundel Creates Insurance ‘Gap’ Fund for Drug Treatment

Fund helps alleviate short-term insurance issues that can keep some from receiving treatment. 

Anne Arundel County has developed a small fund, administered through its Crisis Response Team, to help people overcome temporary insurance hurdles and allow them to access treatment.

The Capital Gazette reports:

Adrienne Mickler, executive director of the county Mental Health Agency, said the county has allocated $43,000 toward helping people in need of treatment but with questions about health insurance.

Mickler explained it as a fund that makes temporary daily payments for treatment while county officials work with insurance providers and treatment centers to have services billed through insurance.
