Methadone Now Covered for Passport Members​

Effective July 1, 2019, Methadone is now covered as a part of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Passport Health Plan members.
Methadone can help members reduce or stop the use of heroin or other opiate​s.
MAT can be an effective treatment for substance use disorders when it’s used with counseling and getting connected to social supports. DMS covers non-emergency transportation for members who are receiving MAT.
If you know a member who could benefit from the use of methadone and/or MAT, our Member Services and Beacon Behavioral Health teams can help them locate a provider to begin treatment.​
