The insurance aspect of substance abuse treatment can be challenging for some, but understanding whether your health insurance covers substance abuse and addiction treatment is crucial. You should never feel unable to receive treatment that will save your life.
Insurance and You
Many people will turn to private insurance for their addiction treatment to cover the costs associated. Various health insurance providers offer different plans and options.
Many insurance plans will cover addiction treatment; however, there may be rules or stipulations on how long or where addiction treatment is covered.
Insurance companies that Summit Behavioral Health works with include:
- USA Managed Care Organization
Some insurance companies may require your treatment facility to be “in-network” or have a specialized contract in place between the insurance provider and facility. Other factors that may lead to whether your insurance will cover substance abuse will be if the facility is private or public or in-state or out-of-state.
At Summit Behavioral Health, our insurance specialists will handle the challenging task associated with the approval process for your coverage. Our dedicated experts will reach out to insurance companies and determine what may or may not be covered.
Don’t worry if your insurance company is not listed above. We may still accept your insurance or can work out a plan of full or partial payments. Our objective is to get you help, which means we are willing to discuss options and assist you in reaching your goal of achieving a healthy life.
What Does Insurance Cover?
Most plans cover all addictions and substances, but you must keep in mind that your policy could differ, as some plans only include specific substances. In rare cases, your coverage may only accept alcohol addiction treatment but not heroin addiction treatment. It’s crucial to determine if your plan covers your specific needs.
All insurance companies and their plans are different, so it’s essential that you understand the benefits and coverage before you enter into treatment. Most insurance companies prefer to cover outpatient treatment. At Summit Behavioral Health, we are empathetic to meeting each client’s needs. We offer flexible full or partial payment plans to make your treatment a reality.
How Long Am I Covered?
The duration of treatment will vary from one individual to another, but it will also depend on your insurance plan. You may have a policy that covers the entire duration of your stay, while others will cover a set number of treatment days — this may pose a challenge if you require an extended period for your well-being.
Summit Behavioral Health has committed to providing our clients with various payment options. We are firm believers that addiction care should be affordable and accessible, and we would like to work with you to ensure your entry into our facility.
