Does Blue Cross Blue Shield Cover Drug Rehab?
It can be overwhelming to go through your BCBS policy to find out if they will cover the cost of substance abuse treatment for you or a loved one. We have an expertly trained staff of addiction experts ready and willing to help you navigate through the intricacies of your policy. All you need to do is call and we will take care of the rest.
Addiction Treatment Services is all about helping you identify which drug and alcohol rehab programs accept your insurance and for how long.
Helping You Navigate Your Blue Cross Blue Shield Drug Rehab Policy
A high number of rehabilitation facilities across the country accept Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) insurance for all types of substance abuse treatment services.
While we help people nationwide with many different types of Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, here are a few providers we particularly have a lot of history with:
- Premera Blue Cross of Washington
- Empire BCBS of New York
- Horizon BCBS of New Jersey
- Massachusetts BCBS
- Illinois BCBS
Blue Cross Blue Shield is accepted in all 50 states and covers more than 100 million Americans. As a network, BCBS is made up of more than 35 independent and locally operated agencies, all of which help policyholders navigate state laws regarding health care. More than 96 percent of hospitals and 92 percent of health care providers work directly with a BCBS agency.
If you are covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield, then you should have several options for a successful and healthy recovery from addiction.
How BCBS Policies Work for Addiction Treatment Centers
Blue Cross Blue Shield is accepted, at least on some level, by most addiction treatment centers, although coverage varies greatly from state to state. It is not uncommon for someone with a policy in one state to have all of their claims approved and in the neighboring state have all of their claims denied.
In some cases, we have seen extremely strong stipulations on a policy, such only hospital treatment or no substance abuse or mental health benefits at all. The old saying for people who have BCBS is, “If you’ve seen one policy, then you’ve seen one”.
Due to the complexity of Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance coverage from state to state, Addiction Treatment Services helps you find the highest possible level of care at the least amount of expense. Furthermore, contacting BCBS directly may not yield the best options for you, as we base most of our referrals on the past experiences of actual clients who have gotten their alcohol and drug rehab treatment programs covered by insurance.
