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 that is contracted by Cigna, outpatient visits require no pre-authorization to get coverage. Some treatment and levels of service 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 varies from plan to plan, but you do have the option of looking through the details of each one and selecting the one that offers the coverage you need. There are treatment centers across the country that are available to Cigna members with the necessary coverage. Some of the common services include inpatient and outpatient services, detoxification and emergency assessments.
