Drug and alcohol abuse can be covered under some plans, but this will depend on the type of plan, and what specific services are covered. Millions of American’s struggle with substance abuse each day and roughly 93% of the 20.3 million Americans with drug addictions do not get the help they need. When looking for treatment, it will be important to contact your insurance company or going through your employee assistance program. The only way to find out if you are covered for drug treatment is to call the insurance provider directly. There are also some other useful questions to ask the health insurance provider, such as does my policy cover the entire cost of treatment? Is there a list of treatment facilities I can select from? And, are there any limitations regarding treatment, and how long does my policy cover treatment for? Your insurance company providing care, such as Optum should be able to answer these questions and help you determine what will be the best level of care for your addiction.

Many families with a loved one who is battling addiction will have to turn to their insurance provider to see what type of help they can get. There is a cost involved with the majority of drug and alcohol treatment programs in the United States. Even state-financed treatment services can cost something; some addicts will go the way of trying to get a grant or some type of payment assistance. Unfortunately, there are millions of Americans, who do not have health insurance, despite the recent expansion of Medicaid and Medicare. Health insurance plans are not always affordable, but addicts who are covered should check with their insurance provider or contact the different drug and alcohol rehab programs they are looking at.
