In-Network Rehab Coverage for Drug and Alcohol Treatment Comes In Different Forms

Insurance companies have come to understand alcoholism and addiction as very treatable medical conditions. Prior to the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2014, insurance coverage choices remained limited. Out-of-pocket costs were unfortunately not affordable. But insurers, like Anthem Blue Cross now, more than ever, recognize the psychiatric and physical effects of substance abuse. They know how addiction manifests over time and they have started to offer more rehabilitation provisions as a preventative measure.

Private Insurance–While it costs more money compared to public insurance, the options available for healthcare are much broader and comprehensive. This is a huge benefit during times when family members and others find their lives severely affected by alcoholism or drug addiction.

Private insurance refers to health insurance plans that are paid by an employer or an individual person. Private insurance is not subsidized by the federal government or any of its agencies. Rehabilitation options can include inpatient drug or alcohol rehab for what would be considered an extended stay—90 days, or longer. High-end facilities offer patients the chance to take advantage of luxurious amenities while receiving medically-managed detox. They also offer intensive, one-on-one counseling with licensed professionals, experiential therapists, and certified substance abuse counselors. These counselors address any underlying dual diagnosis mental or behavioral disorders, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Amenities may include fine cuisine, massage, and fitness instructors, to name a few. Certain covered holistic treatment approaches, including Eastern practices such as acupuncture, meditation, yoga and herbal treatments in conjunction with traditional treatment are available.

Group Insurance–Several group insurance packages include provisions for Los Angeles rehab center for addiction. Group plans offer psychological health benefits and these funds, when made available, usually cover plans for alcohol and drug detox. They may also cover residential hospitalization, long-term inpatient treatment, and individual and group outpatient support. The main obstacle here is fear of losing jobs, and because of that, refrain from taking advantage of their benefits.

Public Insurance–Affordable inpatient drug and alcohol rehab treatment for people whose insurance does not cover behavioral or substance addiction. There are treatment facilities that are partially or entirely subsidized by the government. These facilities accept state or federal medical insurance plans for full or partial payment of services. However, specific income guidelines are in place for these plans. Clients should check with their chosen rehab facility or the right public insurance agency. They can determine if they are really qualified to avail themselves of public insurance programs that include addiction rehab.

Insurers traditionally base their approval for coverage regarding treatment for alcohol and drug rehab on as “medical necessity” as defined by the insurer—not treatment professionals. Treatment plans must meet professional medical standards, the insurer may still reject a proposed treatment if it is inconsistent with other elements, such as costs and the recommended length of rehab dependent on the severity of the addiction or any co-occurring disorders.
