There are so many barriers to treatment, and thinking about the financial aspect of it may seem insurmountable to some people. But if you have the asset of a Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) insurance policy, you are closer to recovery than you may think. Their insurance policies are truly an asset for those seeking treatment for themselves or a loved one, and will carry people seeking help through detox, into residential treatment, and beyond.
Drug Rehabs Covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield
Accepting the need to get help is a tough battle for many addicts. But once they are open to treatment, it shouldn’t be another battle to actually find a detox and rehab center for them to turn to. If you have a BCBS insurance policy, you are working at an advantage in that department.
To find if a center takes your insurance policy, the best course of action is to get ahold your insurance card and contact the treatment center directly. There is a standard protocol to these sorts of inquiries. Feel secure that all of your questions and information will remain confidential within our organization in accordance with HIPAA laws. Once you place the phone call, an admissions counselor will talk to you about you or your loved one’s situation. It is recommended that all addicts and alcoholics go through detox to ensure safe withdrawals. Alcohol and benzo withdrawal in particular can be fatal if not monitored by treatment professionals.
Mental Health & Substance Abuse Coverage
Over the last few years, BCBS policy coverage for mental health and substance abuse disorders has dramatically expanded. Because of advances in our medical understanding of addiction, insurance companies have acknowledged it as a medical disease that qualifies for covered care.
Insurance companies understand that healthy policyholders are the least expensive to treat in the long term. Part of being healthy is getting help for the disease of addiction, particularly since those benefits extend to the entire family of the addict or alcoholic. It is well known in our community that addiction is a family disease, so it’s in the best interest of everyone to get help when they need it.
