In many situations, the only way a person can fight off a drug or alcohol
addiction that has significantly lessened their quality of life is by
checking into a
treatment program or detoxification (detox) facility. Through a deliberate focus on life improvement and the elimination
of unhealthy habits, rehabilitative courses can be incredibly successful
for the average recovering addict. Utilizing a detox program also decreases
the chances that a drug or alcohol addicted individual will recede, or
begin substance abuse again in the future.
However, despite the many benefits of detox programs, addiction treatments,
and rehabilitation facilities, many people do not seek out this help out
of fear they cannot afford it. They do not realize that their own
insurance might be accepted at a clinic or care center, which could mitigate the majority of the treatment costs.
Will My Health Insurance Help Cover My Drug or Alcohol Detox?
Medicaid/Medicare: Medicaid programs do not have any specific coverages for detox programs
and rehab centers. Therefore, a person who only has Medicaid will most
likely not be able to find any insurance coverage for these crucial treatment
options. The same is also true for Medicare in most situations.
Private Health Insurance: There are
many private health insurance options that do work with alcohol and drug
detox programs, though. People who know that rehabilitation is a necessity may want to
first look into their insurance situations to see if they have some sort
of coverage. Many of these private insurance groups are actually provided
through employment so they can be easier obtained than it might seem.
If you are purchasing insurance through your workplace, or if your employer
offers it for free as an employment benefit, talk to a representative
at work or with that insurer for more information about your coverage.
You may be able to add on detox care coverage to a preexisting plan as well.
