Seeking professional help for addiction, alcoholism, or other harmful behavior is frightening. For most people, it’s the hardest thing they’ll ever do. Many times, people avoid getting the help they need for a substance use disorder because they don’t have the right tools. People are often surprised to find out they could potentially use their health insurance to cover some of the treatment costs. Here’s your guide to Tufts Health drug rehab coverage options.
Tufts Health Coverage for Substance Abuse Treatments
Tufts Health offers a wide range of coverage options for its members. They have employer plans, connector plans, as well as Medicaid and Medicare, plans available. Tufts Health offers substance abuse treatment coverage with no additional cost to anyone who needs treatment. Members can even receive coverage for co-occurring disorders, including anxiety, depression, and eating disorders.
As far as treatment options, you should be able to access some level of coverage for:
- Drug and alcohol detox
- Inpatient rehabilitation
- Partial hospitalization programs
- Intensive outpatient programs
- Outpatient programs
- Medication-assisted treatment
- Aftercare recovery programs
Most Tufts Health plans even cover medication management services for those needing ongoing support. They also offer $0 cost on opioid overdose reversal medications like naloxone. Of course, the specific level of coverage will vary depending on the type of plan you have. It’s vital to talk to your insurance provider to learn more about what’s covered with your policy.
How to Verify Coverage
The first step to reap the benefits of your insurance plan is to verify coverage. Contact your insurance provider to help you find treatment facilities in your area that are in-network. Additionally, you can always reach out to our admissions office. Use our insurance verification form to find out if your insurance policy covers drug rehab.
More than that, you want to ask about what’s covered under your policy and for how long will these benefits extend. Sometimes people need to be in a rehab center for 30 days or 90 days. After all, addiction recovery is a long-term process. Some insurance companies will stop covering after a specific period. Our admission specialists can help you find out the length of your coverage.
