However, when it comes to filing insurance claims to get the treatment you need, things can get complicated. Here’s your guide to Highmark drug rehab coverage to start working towards your recovery today. 

Highmark Coverage for Substance Abuse Treatments

Many people don’t realize BCBS is many separate healthcare providers that collectively form one of the US’s largest health insurance providers. Highmark is one of the many subsidiaries that belong to BlueCross BlueShield’s network. As far as Highmark drug rehab coverage, the plans and coverage options vary tremendously. Most of the time, an insurance plan will provide some level of coverage for:

As with most medical conditions, insurance might only cover a portion of the treatment. It’s important to talk with your insurance provider to fully understand what’s covered with your policy and what will be your out-of-pocket expense. 

Luckily, BlueCross BlueShield’s network is one of the largest in the nation, meaning you shouldn’t have an issue with finding the right treatment center for your condition. 

BCBS Subsidiaries

Blue Cross Blue Shield is one of the largest insurance providers in the country. Because of this, they have a lot of subsidiary carriers. Some of the most popular subsidiaries include:

  • Highmark
  • CareFirst
  • HCSC
  • Anthem

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. 

How to Pay for Rehab If My Highmark Plan Doesn’t Cover It
