Third-Party Administrators like Core Source expanded services to include health insurance coverage for alcohol and drug rehabilitation after implementing the Parity Act. The Parity Act was designed to highlight employer benefits of self-funded employee programs. The emphasis of the act was on mandatory health insurance guidelines for larger employers. According to the details of the Act, employees needing coverage for drug or alcohol rehab only have to check with their HR department to find out how much coverage they have.
Many employers with little to no interest in covering substance abuse treatment have started to think differently, signing on with Core Source to provide this important service. Core Source is busy in its role of being a Third-Party Administrator, handling claims, setting up networks across the nation, and handling inpatient and outpatient participating providers and non-providers.
