There’s no question that addiction treatment can be an investment. It’s a comprehensive medical procedure that requires multiple levels of care, depending on your specific care needs and substance use history. It’s important to realize, however, that the cost of addiction treatment will always be lower than the cost of addiction itself. It’s also important to remember that you can use your insurance to pay for all or part of your addiction treatment, depending on your plan type and care needs.

Multiple insurance companies cover addiction and mental health treatment, and Recovery Unplugged is in-network with virtually all of them to make care more affordable and accessible. Here are three insurance companies that offer some of the most comprehensive coverage for your treatment needs.

Aetna for Addiction and Mental Health Treatment

Aetna covers a wide range of addiction treatment services, no matter what level of care you may need. The company offers Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral (SBIRT) for alcohol addiction, as well as a suite of other services, including:

  • Medical Detox
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs)

Coverage will vary by state, however, Recovery Unplugged is in-network with Aetna at our facilities in Florida, Austin, Nashville, and Northern Virginia.

Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS)

Blue Cross Blue Shield operates through hundreds of affiliates and subsidiaries across the country, each offering different tiers of coverage. Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) companies have developed a national designation program, Blue Distinction Center for Substance Use Treatment and Recovery, which recognizes nationally accredited treatment facilities that improve outcomes with evidence-based care.

The company also offers coverage for all types of mental health treatment, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Recovery Unplugged is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and its affiliates to make coverage more affordable and accessible.

Cigna for Addiction and Mental Health Treatment

Cigna offers multiple tiers of comprehensive insurance for addiction and mental health treatment, including medically supervised withdrawal management, inpatient and outpatient behavioral rehab, partial hospitalization programs, and more. Like other insurance providers, the company has different levels of coverage, including Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum plans. Platinum plans will obviously offer the highest level of coverage. Cigna provides coverage for 12-step programs, routine patient care, substance use education, case management services, and many more lifesaving treatment resources.
