America’s Rehab Campuses is certified by the Joint Commission and this enables us to accept a wide range of Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) insurance plans. This includes services for, but is not limited to:
- Trauma therapy
- Dual diagnosis
- Inpatient treatment
- PTSD therapy
- Private therapy and counseling
- Medical detoxification
- Intensive outpatient treatment
America’s Rehab Campuses is in-network and we are in partnership with over 15 insurance companies including Alliance, Anthem, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Cigna, HealthPartners, and UnitedHealtheCare. Our collaboration with these insurance companies enables patients to defray their treatment costs.
When a drug or alcohol recovery center is said to be in-network, it means that they have made an arrangement with an insurance company to offer clients better rates than other rehab centers. At ARC, we can offer our services to clients with certain insurance plans at discounted rates because of our collaboration with various insurance companies. By virtue of this, we are able to help many people dealing with different addictions.
The other option to in-network coverage is out-of-network coverage, which is expensive since you have to pay for the rehab services yourself. In-network rehab centers in general offer clients low rates for their services.
In-Network vs Out-of-Network
In-network and out-of-network differ in regards to cost. For instance, one insurance company may agree to provide full coverage for the services of an in-network rehab center, while providing partial coverage for an out-of-network provider.
In other cases, insurance providers may provide coverage for services that are only in-network, which means you would need to cover the costs for those services that are out-of-network.
However, the coverage you get depends on your insurance plan. For example, if you have a PPO plan, you don’t need a referral from a primary care physician to seek treatment. But to get discounted rates, you need to receive treatment from a provider who is in-network.
Given that healthcare insurance plans differ, America’s Rehab Campuses can help you determine whether your plan covers addiction treatment and if it does, to what extent. Our mission is to ensure that clients seeking help with their addiction get the care they need. But to do this we need to evaluate your insurance plan to determine what is covered.
Types of Healthcare Insurance Plans
Health insurance plans are many and differ in terms of coverage. Some offer full coverage, while others provide partial coverage. However, at America’s Rehab Campuses, we accept different insurance plans, as long as the plan covers addiction treatment.
Some of the most beneficial health care insurance plans include:
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)
This plan is quite flexible as it allows individuals to choose their provider without needing a referral from a primary care physician. Providers who are part of the PPO network are inexpensive, but the plan may also cover some of the costs of an out-of-network provider if you seek one.
Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)
HMO plans are they usually referred to are not as flexible as PPO plans. HMO plans do not offer any kind of coverage to out-of-network providers and clients require a referral to seek the services of an in-network specialist. However, they offer lower rates than PPOs.
High Deductible Health Plan(HDHP)
With HDHP plans, clients are required to pay some amount of money before the insurance provider can cover any healthcare services.
Health Savings Account(HSA)
HSA account is a savings account for people with high deductible healthcare plans, which is set aside in case a person needs to pay a high medical bill. These accounts have tax advantages and they are quite flexible when it comes to settling medical expenses.
Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO)
With an EPO plan, you have the freedom to choose your healthcare provider without requiring a referral from a primary care physician. Unlike PPOs, EPOs do not provide coverage for out-of-network providers, although they have lower premiums than PPOs.
Point-of-Service Plan (POS)
A PPO plan allows you to choose a healthcare provider of your choice, but you do need to have a primary care physician who will coordinate your care as well as refer you to a specialist if the need arises.
What you are expected to pay for recovery treatment
Whether you have HMO, PPO, or HDHP plan you are required to pay some amount of money in form of copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. In addition to these, you are required to pay a monthly premium, which is not deducted to cover your treatment costs.
- Copayment – copayment is fixed amount of money you are expected to pay before you receive treatment. Usually, this amount is significantly small.
- Coinsurance – this is a fixed percentage of the total cost your treatment that you are expected to pay before you receive any care.
- Deductible – This is an amount of your insurance provider expects you to pay before they can cover your treatment costs.
What are the benefits?
Since the inclusion of mental addiction and mental health care services into the Affordable Care Act, the coverage provided must be the same as with any other medical service. Some of the addiction services covered include:
- Inpatient treatment
- Medical detoxification
- Residential rehabilitation programs
- Outpatient care
If we determine that you need medical treatment for your addiction, we will evaluate your insurance plan to determine if this is covered. If not, we can help you work out a payment plan or advise you on which insurance plan to get to afford this type of treatment.
How to Get Insurance Coverage for Our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs
Depending on your insurance plan, there are certain requirements you may need to meet before your insurance provider can provide coverage. But there are ways of getting coverage without too much hassle. Here is how:
- Consult your doctor
Your doctor may refer you to our facility making it easier to deal with your insurance provider.
- Evaluate your coverage
Remember, health insurance plans may not offer the same type of coverage. Some may provide cover for all the services, while others may provide cover for just some services. By evaluating your coverage, we can be able to determine what your insurance plan covers. However, first ensure that we are on your list of in-network providers.
If we are not an in-network provider according to your insurance provider, this does not mean that you cannot get some coverage. We can help you calculate the cost of your treatment and what you need to pay.
- Contact your Insurance Provider
When you find that some of the details of your insurance plan are confusing, contact your insurance provider. They can help you determine what your insurance plans covers and what it doesn’t.
