There are thousands of specialized drug treatment facilities in the United States. Many of these provide behavioral therapy, counseling, medication, case management, and other services for substance abuse treatment. These centers deliver treatment in an inpatient, outpatient, or residential setting. Most standard health insurance plans will provide coverage for some form of addiction treatment. However, not all plans are created equal and it is critical that you understand the range of services covered under your insurance. For more information about addiction treatment insurance, or if you’re ready to have your insurance verified, contact Harmony Hills today at 855.494.0357.
What Does My Insurance Cover?
As long as your health plan lists addiction treatment as a covered benefit, we can provide care regardless of the substance. It is always a good idea to be sure of what your specific insurance covers.
Health plans will cover a variety of substance abuse issues under the addiction treatment umbrella. However, that does not mean they will offer the same kind of blanket coverage for every treatment level and service. Thus, it is critical to determine what types of substance abuse services your insurance covers. Depending on your plan, the following services may or may not be covered:
- Medical detox: Depending on the addiction, this service may include maintenance medications.
- Long-term residential treatment care at an approved treatment center
- Outpatient care with an approved provider
- Dual-diagnosis treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders or mental health issues
- Aftercare counseling or therapy
What Length of Treatment Will My Insurance Cover?
Another factor that insurance carriers consider is treatment duration. Depending on your insurance plan, your carrier may cover the entire length of your treatment. However, some plans will only cover a certain amount of days. This situation can be an obstacle if your substance addiction requires a longer residential or detox process.
What you should know is that when it comes to addiction treatment, what ultimately matters are the quality of services, available treatment plans, level of credentialed staff, reputation, and the facility’s track record of success.
Benefits of Addiction Treatment
Severe addictions, especially those involving alcohol, opioids, and polysubstance abuse (where someone is abusing two or more substances simultaneously), require comprehensive, inpatient care.
