Does Insurance Cover Medical Drug or Alcohol Detox?
Drug or alcohol detox is the first step in overcoming your addiction. In medical detox, you’ll get help managing the physical symptoms of your withdrawal, which can be uncomfortable or even deadly when tackling on your own. Doctors will provide medications and monitor you to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
After alcohol or drug detox, you’ll then need to enter an alcohol or drug rehab program. Drug or alcohol rehab goes a step further than detox to help you learn the behaviors and skills you need to permanently curb your substance abuse.
However, before you can enter either of these programs, you need to determine a way to pay for them. Medical drug or alcohol detox is not free. In fact, it can be a costly process, especially if you choose inpatient detox. In some cases, insurance will cover these costs, but in other cases, you’ll need to work out payment another way.
Luckily, the government has taken note of the growing substance abuse crisis and to assist with the problem, they passed the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) in 2008. This regulation forces insurance providers to offer the same coverage for mental health and substance use treatment as they do for other types of medical care. If you have insurance through your employer, this means there’s a good chance your plan will at least partly cover detox. It all depends on the overall level of coverage you’ve chosen.
If you buy your own insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace, the Affordable Care Act also stipulates that all plans must cover three important mental and behavioral health aspects:
- Treatment for behavioral health issues
- Behavioral health and mental health inpatient services
- Substance use disorder treatment
- Again, whether or not you have full coverage for detox depends on the plan level you’ve chosen.
America’s Rehab Campuses can take Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) insurance plans such as Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shied, Cigna, and UnitedHealthcare for medical detox, inpatient residential drug rehab, and other services.
Medicare, AHCCCS, and Cenpatico
Medicare and AHCCCS is a state type of insurance those who have retired or have a disability. As this program is managed by the federal government, there are regulations for what is covered in treatment for substance use disorders. However, these state insurance programs will generally cover:
- Medical Detox
- Inpatient Residential Treatment
Other Ways to Pay for drug rehab services
If you don’t have any insurance and you don’t qualify for Medicare or Medicaid, there are a few other ways to pay for drug or alcohol detox. These include:
- America’s Rehab Campuses offers flexible payment terms with 0% financing.
- Your state’s children’s health insurance program (CHIP), which can offer detox treatment for your children under 18.
- TRICARE, which is a regionally managed insurance service for members of the military and their families.
- Indian Health Service, which provides health care services for much of the country’s Native American population.
