Cigna is a publicly-traded, global company that works with customers to provide high-value health care products. For substance abuse treatment, if you find a behavioral health provider contracted by Cigna, outpatient visits require no pre-authorization to get coverage. Some treatment and service levels do need pre-authorization, so it’s always important to find out ahead of time.
There are several different health plans to choose from as a Cigna member, including HMO, FSA, PPO, POS, and Open Access. The specific drug and alcohol rehab coverage vary from plan to plan, but you have the option of looking through each one’s details and selecting the one that offers the coverage you need. There are treatment centers across the country available to Cigna members with the necessary coverage. Some common services include inpatient and outpatient services, detoxification, and emergency assessments.
