One concern that many individuals and families have about substance abuse and addiction treatment is making sure that the costs can be covered so that once treatment is done, money isn’t a new stressor. America’s Rehab Campuses is proud to serve our Arizona residents, and as such we work directly with the state’s Medicaid program.
The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, or AHCCCS, helps bring health coverage to nearly 2 million residents each year in an attempt to keep insurance accessible. With this offering comes coverage for a multitude of specialists and treatment plans which include addiction treatment. By helping to cover a majority of the cost of treatment, those looking to start treatment can rest easy knowing they won’t be facing a mountain of expenses on the other end of the process.
Knowing Which Services AHCCCS Covers
Regardless of which version of an AHCCCS plan you have, you’ll be able to utilize the coverage for behavioral health and substance abuse treatment. The most common services that are covered include:
- Intensive outpatient programs
- Inpatient addiction treatment
- Medically assisted detox
- Partial or full hospitalization
- Outpatient and day programs
- Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT
Other services covered that are just as important but not as well-known are items such as case management, education services, medication management and relapse recovery.
Medicaid and AHCCCS Benefits Eligibility
In order to have access to the Arizona Medicaid market for AHCCCS plans, residents will need to meet specific income and household requirements. If you aren’t sure whether or not you qualify, you can check directly online on the AHCCCS website. If you meet the requirements, applying for coverage is simple with an online application.
After the approval process is complete and coverage is available, it’s time to find a treatment center that accepts AHCCCS plans such as our programs here at ARC. If you’re concerned that you may need more specific services that may not be covered, we encourage you to give our team a call for a confidential consultation where we can go over the services covered. We want to make sure everyone that comes through our doors has an understanding of what they’re paying for and how their coverage works.
The driving force behind more healthcare groups adding addiction treatment services to their covered treatments is the sheer amount of individuals suffering from addiction and substance abuse and the impact it’s having on the local society. Addiction drives those suffering from it to worry only about their substance of choice and can make decisions in pursuit of these drugs that hurt not only themselves but those around them.
What Addiction Treatment Means at ARC
When the time comes for an individual to move away from a life of addiction and towards a life of sobriety, America’s Rehab Campuses are there to ease the mind with compassionate medical staff. With a goal of lifelong sobriety and not just a moment of clarity, ARC strives to provide the proper education and coping mechanisms to truly equip recovered individuals with the tools needed to stay sober in the face of future impulses.
From streamlined processing to get individuals on board to post-treatment support through a referral system of mental health professionals, each journey isn’t considered a success to our team unless we’ve made the time spent in recovery as comfortable as possible. Instilling confidence in every individual through specialized addiction professionals and proper support groups allows them to focus on healing rather than the quality of their care.
Addiction Recovery Is Never Out of the Question
If you or someone you care about has struggled with addiction for quite some time, worries about withdrawal and detox are very common and completely justified due to how severe the symptoms can be. By going the route of medically assisted detox, the withdrawal symptoms can be managed with medication for physical pains and mental health support for helping understand what’s happening to remove any worries about what to expect.
Another demographic that often overlooks substance abuse treatment are those in the early stages of addiction. Their substance use may be starting to cost them more money than it should or is taking priority over other responsibilities. It’s important to get ahead of these signs of addiction with a proper treatment plan that matches the severity of the situation.
Whether you’re needing outpatient treatment to address a budding concern or need a 24/7 support system for detox and treatment, America’s Rehab Campuses is ready to help make the road to recovery as smooth as possible.
