Once you’ve made the brave decision to begin treatment for your addiction to drugs or alcohol, the next question is: does insurance cover addiction treatment? There are different treatment options and programs available, so the important thing is to find out what is covered so that you know what to expect. Plan ahead by finding out what types of treatments are covered and by making sure that the alcohol and drug treatment centeryou choose accepts your insurance.
New Addiction Treatment Laws & Insurance Coverage for Rehab
This past November, lawmakers finally passed the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act into law. This new law regarding mental health and addiction treatment evens the playing field when it comes to insurance coverage for treatment. This means that we can finally answer “yes” to the question, “does insurance cover addiction treatment?” The law means that insurance companies must cover mental health and addiction treatment the same way they provide coverage for any type of treatment for physical illnesses. Insurance companies now charge the same co-pays, premiums, and deductibles for alcohol and drug addiction treatment as they would for a physical illness.
