Insurance Coverage For Rehab Near You: Frequently Asked Questions

The thought of paying for substance abuse services or rehab facilities can sometimes be overwhelming. It’s often thought that care is difficult to obtain due to finances.

When you call, be sure to have your insurance information handy so they can pull up information specific to your coverage. Ask about facilities and covered services within your plan and network. Your insurance provider may also have information available on their website. Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) healthcare insurance providers are required to pay for addiction and mental health treatment. Although required though, what and how much they will cover can vary.

It’s helpful to see an addiction specialist to help gauge what services may be best for you before beginning this process. This may occur in place of or along with an intake evaluation. There is a range of general substance use programs and each individual may require a different level of care based on a variety of factors. Here are some examples of factors that may influence a treatment plan:

  • Length of use. Addicts who have been using for an extended period may be subjected to a more serious withdrawal process and may also require longer or more supervised care.
  • Accompanying mental health disorders. Many individuals who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction also suffer from another form of mental or behavioral disorder. Recovery Beach offers a dual diagnosis program for those that need treatment focused on addiction and mental health disorders.
  • The substance that is being used. Withdrawal and level of addiction can vary by the substance being consumed.

Knowing what level of care is professionally recommended for your situation will be helpful when communicating with your insurance provider. Various levels of addiction treatment are available, and many insurance companies cover them all.

At addiction treatment facilities, you may find four distinct levels of care available:

  • Detox. The body goes through detoxification when all alcohol and/or drugs are eliminated, allowing a person to become physically stable before beginning addiction therapy. Detoxification is not always necessary for treatment but is often the first step in the rehab process. It’s important to be medically supervised during a detoxification period. Some of the side effects that may come with detox include fluctuations in blood pressure, anxiety, stomach issues, and even seizures. When undergoing a medically supervised detox, you will have access to support and prescribed medications when needed to get through the detox process safely.
  • Outpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment entails many of the same benefits and therapies as inpatient treatment but offers more flexibility. Outpatient care can commonly follow inpatient treatment – as a way of continuing treatment and receiving support while being able to practice abstinence from substances in the outside world.
  • Inpatient treatment. Inpatient, or residential treatment, is for individuals who need and/or can fully focus on their sobriety while living in a designated facility. This may be the best choice for individuals suffering from mental illness disorders or other medical conditions alongside their addiction. Not only will residential patients receive around-the-clock medical care, but will participate in a structured regimen of therapy and education.
  • Intensive outpatient treatment. This is essentially exactly what it sounds like – intense outpatient treatment. This option may be the best choice for individuals who have familial commitments or other obligations that prevent them from receiving supervised treatment 24 hours a day. In most cases, patients will receive structured therapy and support during the day and return to their own homes afterward. It is essential to their success that any patients attending an intensive outpatient program reside in a drug-free home.

With the help of a medical professional that specializes in addiction, you can decide which level of care is right for you. Having this information before verifying coverage with your insurance is important in determining what costs you may be responsible for if any.

How much does rehab cost with insurance?


Individual out-of-pocket expenses, if applicable, will vary based on which services are covered by your insurance company. Each patient’s specific insurance plan may have different coverage requirements. It’s important to understand some common fees and terms. A deductible is an annual maximum you will pay for covered service in an annual term. Typically, aside from coinsurance and copayments, incurred amounts after you have met your deductible will be covered by your provider. Coinsurance may leave you responsible for a smaller percentage of care after your deductible has been met. A copayment is a flat rate fee charged per applicable visit. These fees and terms, when applicable, vary widely. It’s important to have a cohesive understanding of your plan. Recovery Beach can help you work with insurance to maximize your benefits. Insurance can pay for up to 100% of treatment costs. Recovery Beach is committed to helping addicts get the treatment needed so we’ll help you work with insurance and find a way to afford treatment if necessary.

What will insurance pay for as a part of treatment?


Many insurance policies cover substance abuse treatment, typically as part of their mental/behavioral health services; however, certain limitations may be in place. It is important to understand that coverage not only depends on the insurance provider but the patient’s policy itself. Here are some examples of limitations that may be in place:

  • Certain facilities may not be covered. Some policies only provide coverage within certain facilities such as hospitals, detox centers, etc.
  • A time frame might exist. Certain policies might have a limit, or several days for example, in which treatment will be covered.
  • Level of treatment. Policies may have restrictions on what level of treatment will be covered. For example, not all policies will cover inpatient treatment.

To be sure about what your insurance covers, take a look at your policy manual or contact your insurance provider directly. Admission staff is available to help you with this process.

Does insurance cover substance abuse treatment?


Many people worry that their insurance will not cover substance abuse treatment. A law passed in 2010 called the Affordable Care Act ensures that insurance providers provide coverage for mental health and addiction treatments. The type of treatment that is covered will vary based on your specific plan.

Is insurance coverage for rehab confidential?


Every contact with Recovery Beach is confidential, as it should be with any treatment center or rehab. If you’re worried about an employer or other party finding out about your addiction – let the worry go and seek the help you need.

Individuals seeking care at a rehab facility can breathe easy knowing their privacy is protected through the provisions of 42 Code of Federal Regulations. This ensures that facilities receiving federal funding may not record or report individuals as having a substance abuse disorder without the patient’s written consent. A majority of rehab facilities receive some federal funding, therefore abide by those privacy requirements. Facilities that do not receive government funding may have to abide by state privacy regulations.

Who should I contact if I have further questions regarding insurance coverage?


If you have further questions about your insurance coverage or policy, reach out to your insurance provider or contact Recovery Beach. Our admissions team at Recovery Beach deals with treatment and insurance policies every day. We are well-versed in understanding and explaining the benefits and legalities that protect your right to treatment.

If you or someone close to you is struggling with addiction, it’s essential to get the necessary support and treatment. Knowing how to use insurance to cover rehab costs can help you make informed decisions about your care and prevent the devastating long-term effects of substance abuse.
