What You Must Know About Drug Rehab Insurance

You need to make sure you understand your drug rehab insurance plan inside and out.

You need to make sure you understand your drug rehab insurance plan inside and out.

If you or someone you love is addicted to drugs or alcohol and needs help then there’s already a chance that you have begun searching for treatment and realized that the cost is rather high which makes getting the help you need difficult. If you think that drug rehab is out of the question because you can’t afford to get help, consider the fact that there are a number of different drug rehab insurance options available to help you and you may even have insurance coverage for drug rehab already. Although insurance doesn’t always cover drug rehab and it doesn’t always cover the entire cost of treatment it can be a very beneficial addition that may make paying for drug rehab easier on you.

What is Insurance for Drug Rehab?

Drug rehab is a medical treatment like many other types of treatment such as rehabilitation for a mental condition, a physical disorder or going to the doctor. Because drug rehab is a medical condition, many medical health insurance companies provide insurance coverage for drug rehab. Most insurance companies do not specify a coverage for a particular service associated with drug rehab but you can talk with your insurance company about the specific services that are covered and you can work with the rehab center to assure that you receive covered services.

How do I Know if I Have Drug Rehab Insurance?

If you aren’t sure if you have coverage for drug rehab then the first step is to contact your insurer to determine your coverage and limitations. Most states require insurance companies to offer at least coverage for drug detox but in many cases this is a one time shot because subsequent detoxification may be considered an existing condition that is no longer covered. Call your insurance company and ask them what type of coverage you have for drug rehab and if you do not have coverage for drug rehab you may want to consider adding such coverage to your health insurance policy.

If you are covered by your insurance then there’s no reason not to seek help. Your drug treatment will be covered either partially or fully by the insurance company so you won’t have to worry about how to pay for the help that you receive. If you aren’t sure if the rehab center that you have chosen will accept your insurance plan, consider talking with the rehab center directly.

What if I Don’t Have insurance for Drug Rehab, How Can I Get it?

If you don’t have insurance to cover the cost of drug rehab, it’s not really difficult to get. Just like you would add coverage for prescription medications or doctor’s visits to your health insurance policy you can add coverage for drug treatment. If you already have an existing health insurance then all you have to do is call your insurance company and ask to add coverage for drug rehab. If you don’t already have health insurance, then consider shopping around for a health insurance policy that includes drug rehab coverage. Make sure that if you have already sought help in the past for drug addiction that you do not choose a health coverage that places limits on pre-existing conditions because this may prevent you from qualifying for the drug rehab coverage on a new policy.
