Blue Cross and Blue Shield is a well-known insurance provider within the United States and does offer and provide health insurance options for people living in Puerto Rico. People living in Puerto Rico who are struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction may not always be able to afford treatment, especially if it is a costly private drug rehabilitation program. Persons that have a Blue Cross or Blue Shield insurance plan may have specific options available to them to help cover particular types of treatment for drug addiction or dependency. Private insurance options can help offset certain costs involved with drug rehabilitation, but a family must have these options within their plan. Many people within Puerto Rico are suffering from drug addiction and dependency, and it can be hard to convince a loved one to get the proper help they need. Various types of drug rehabilitation services operate throughout Puerto Rico, and this includes detox programs such as medical detox and conventional detox services. Both outpatient and inpatient drug treatment options are there for families and will be able to treat all types of addiction and drug dependency. If a family or addict does have a Blue Cross or Blue Shield insurance policy, and a loved one is struggling with an addiction they should inquire as to what may be covered under their plan.
