When it comes time to get treatment for your drug or alcohol addiction, it can cause even more worry. When we are in a life of addiction, it can be hard to break the cycle. We know we need to stop using drugs or alcohol, but seemingly can’t. It may feel like our life is out of control and that nobody or anything can help us.
That isn’t true! There are plenty of people out there that want to see you get better and start a sober life.
Finding the right rehab facility can also cause worry. We wonder how we will pay for it or can we afford it. There are many ways to pay for drug and alcohol and rehab. That includes using our health insurance to pay for treatment programs.
Health insurance providers will help cover some or all the costs of drug and alcohol treatment programs. So, getting the help you need doesn’t have to be out of reach!
Using Health Insurance For Rehab
When it comes time to understand our options for drug and alcohol rehab, know that federal law requires insurance providers to cover some costs. Federal law means providers have to give some level of care for drug and alcohol treatment.
That includes Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which is one of the largest providers of health insurance. BC/BS is a health insurance that many people have and it often comes through the place they work.
BC/BS will help pay for rehab insurance so you can offset the costs of getting the treatment you need to break a cycle of drug or alcohol addiction.
What Does BC/BS Cover?
Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurance provides various coverage options, such as paying for detox care, where the drugs and alcohol are safely removed from your body. BC/BS will also help pay for inpatient or outpatient rehab treatment. This is where a person visits a treatment facility for drug or alcohol counseling or therapy to break their addiction.
BC/BS will also help pay for ongoing care, such as living in a sober house.
But what is exactly covered and how much the insurance provider will pay depends on the plan. So, it’s best to contact BC/BS to find out exactly what your plan will pay for when it comes time for addiction treatment.
There is also a Blue Cross and Blue Shield Substance Abuse website that provides information about the disease. The site can also help find a treatment facility or healthcare provider in your area who can help you get treatment using your health insurance plan.
