Millions of Americans suffer from substance abuse, and in fact; roughly 23 million are battling a substance abuse disorder, with roughly only 11% getting the help they need. Most Americans see drug abuse as a problem in their community, regardless if it is in urban, suburban, or rural areas. Many of these concerns come amid the steep increase in opioid-related deaths happening throughout the country. Nine out of every ten Americans say drug addiction is either a major problem or a minor one in their community. People who are looking for help may often become deterred because of the cost involved with receiving treatment. There are both state-financed and private drug treatment centers that can work with health insurance to help cover some or all the costs. Addicts who have insurance should speak with their plan provider and check to see what may be covered. Health insurance is an excellent option to help addicts get the specific help they need. Every health insurance will cover some type of mental health or behavioral health services in the United States. Each plan and policy provider will, of course, be different from the next, and this is why you will have to contact your provider directly or speak to the drug treatment center.

Ask a Professional

  • What is private health insurance?

    Private health insurance is a form of insurance where the client pays a private entity for their choice of offered health plans. The plan’s cost is known as the premium, which can usually be paid monthly, bi-annually, or annually. These plans are among the most expensive options for healthcare coverage, but they generally offer superior benefits and provider networks than subsidized or free health insurance options. Some private health insurance plans allow clients to seek treatment wherever they choose, without being restricted to a particular region or network.

  • Does private health insurance pay for substance abuse treatment?

    Private health insurance usually gives someone the best chance of getting complete coverage for quality treatment. However, it’s important to remember that private health insurance companies aren’t required to cover services they don’t deem necessary. You will not know the exact amount of coverage until an evaluation is done and the treatment center submits a claim. Make sure you talk to the intake counselor and fully understand how they handle insurance coverage. Doing so can ensure you do not have any unexpected expenses and that treatment will not get cut short.

  • How do I get private health insurance?

    Private health insurance is available directly from the companies that provide it. Or a person may be eligible to join a “group” policy through their employment. Group policies are purchased by employers at special rates and may be offered to eligible employees for less than the same policy would cost an individual.

  • What if I don't have private health insurance?

    Someone without private health insurance or cash payment may be eligible for Medicaid coverage. Or, they might find a free or low-cost treatment program with bed availability. Some programs provide sliding scale payment systems or allow patients to make payment arrangements. There’s almost always a way to find help if someone wants to recover from addiction.
