You may be surprised to find that your policy is accepted and also that you can quickly enter a treatment program to start recovering from drug or alcohol addiction.

How Health Insurance Coverage Helps Pay for Rehab

Health insurance didn’t always cover drug and alcohol rehab. The landscape of healthcare was drastically changed through the Affordable Care Act and other legislation that made it easier for patients to get the addiction treatment they need with financial support from their insurance policy.

Additional help came from the American Medical Association with that leading healthcare organization’s recognition of addiction as a legitimate disease requiring medical treatment. Through this acknowledgment of addiction as a medical disease, doors to better health insurance coverage of treatment were opened even farther.

To find out what level of care you can receive from a drug and alcohol rehab using your health insurance coverage, call the rehab facility and have your insurance verified. Through verification, you can find out if you’re eligible for insurance policy coverage of rehab. You can also learn which of the following programs may work best for your addiction and type of coverage:

Here are common questions your addiction specialist can help answer when you call:

  • Does my insurance policy cover rehab?
  • Will your facility accept my type of coverage?
  • Does my policy limit daily benefits? If so, how much is that limit?
  • Will I have out-of-pocket expense?
  • How long can I stay in rehab, according to my policy?

Many factors determine how your policy will cover drug or alcohol rehab, including:

  • Where you live
  • Whether you have used the policy for rehab in the past
  • Specific allowances of your plan
  • Type of treatment you’re seeking
  • Other factors that can be discussed with the addiction specialist when you call
