Understanding Common Insurance Terms

Navigating the world of health insurance can be confusing. Here are some key terms to help you understand your coverage better:

  • Out-of-Pocket Costs: Expenses for medical care that aren’t reimbursed by insurance.
  • In-Network: Health care providers or facilities that are part of a health plan’s network of providers with which it has negotiated a discount.
  • Out-of-Network: Providers or facilities not in your health plan’s network. Out-of-network care usually costs you more.
  • Coinsurance: Your share of the costs of a healthcare service, calculated as a percent (for example, 20%) of the allowed amount for the service.
  • Deductible: The amount you pay for healthcare services before your health insurance begins to pay.
  • Cost-Sharing: A situation where you and your insurance provider both pay parts of your medical expenses.
  • Copay: A fixed amount you pay for a healthcare service, usually when you receive the service.

Does My Insurance Cover Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment?

Most insurance plans cover some level of substance abuse rehab. The coverage details, such as the length of stay and types of services, can vary between health insurance plans. To understand those details, you can reach out to our team or call your medical insurance company.

Types of Addiction Treatment Covered by Insurance

Commonly covered addiction substance abuse treatment options include:

Health insurance plans can also cover medical detox programs. Additionally, those who suffer from mental health and substance use disorders may be able to receive coverage for dual diagnosis rehab at an addiction treatment center.

The Affordable Care Act and Insurance Coverage

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most insurance plans, including Medicaid, to cover substance use disorder rehab to some extent. This means that regardless of which insurance company you have a policy through, they should offer some form of addiction treatment.

The Affordable Care Act has expanded healthcare coverage to millions of Americans. It mandates coverage for behavioral health services, making it easier to get the care you need.

Common Types of Healthcare Plans and Benefits

Common types of healthcare plans and benefits for drug or alcohol rehab may include:

HMO plans typically require members to choose a primary care physician (PCP) who coordinates all healthcare services. Drug and alcohol rehab may require a referral from the PCP to see specialists or receive specific services. HMO plans usually have a network of providers, and members may need to use in-network facilities for maximum coverage.

PPO plans offer more flexibility in choosing healthcare providers and do not usually require a referral to see specialists. Members can often see out-of-network providers, but they will typically pay higher out-of-pocket costs. Substance use disorder treatment services may be covered both in-network and out-of-network, but utilizing in-network providers may result in lower costs.

POS plans combine features of HMO and PPO plans, allowing members to choose between in-network and out-of-network providers. Members typically need to choose a primary care physician and may require referrals for specialized services. Coverage for substance abuse services may vary depending on whether the services are received in-network or out-of-network.

HDHPs have higher deductibles and lower premiums compared to traditional plans. Members can contribute to an HSA, which allows them to save money tax-free for medical expenses, including substance abuse treatment. Once the deductible is met, the plan typically covers a percentage of treatment costs.

Medicaid provides healthcare coverage for low-income individuals and families. Substance abuse treatment services may be covered, including detoxification, counseling, and rehabilitation programs. Coverage and available services vary by state, and eligibility requirements apply.
