In its most recent survey, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that over 23 million Americans suffer from substance abuse of some kind. This makes addiction one of the largest and fastest-growing problems in our country. Many factors lead to addiction, and much research is still being done to discover more about this chronic disease.
One of the biggest roadblocks that prevent many Americans from seeking rehab treatment is the cost. When you factor in the price of treatment, staying at the facility, food, missing work, and arranging childcare if needed, the cost can add up and become unmanageable for many. Luckily, there is POMCO rehab coverage to help cover treatment costs so that individuals can recover in peace without worrying about footing a hefty bill at the end of treatment.
In 2008, with the creation of the Affordable Care Act, all insurance companies are now required to provide coverage for mental health treatment. Addiction treatment and rehab are covered under this umbrella, meaning that POMCO drug rehab coverage and POMCO alcohol rehab coverage are easily accessible.
By providing comprehensive rehab coverage, clients can focus on their recovery rather than think about paying a large bill at the end. This means that more meaningful work can be done to prevent relapse and keep clients focused on the most important thing, their sobriety. It also ensures that everyone who needs help with addiction and substance abuse can get it regardless of their personal or financial situation.
The History of POMCO Insurance
POMCO opened its doors in 1978 as a small benefits firm that employed six employees. They had a goal to provide affordable health insurance to their members. It was these six original employees who worked on a computer program that revolutionized insurance enrollment. This program allowed companies to own their data and make it easier to access the data and educate customers on their benefits. This revolutionary program was the starting point for what many current insurance companies use today.
Today, POMCO has over 600,000 members across the United States. Although they have moved well past the original six employees, they still strive to innovate while providing comprehensive coverage at an affordable price.
What Kind of Treatments are Covered?
Addiction is a personalized disease; therefore, treatment must also be personalized. At Beachway, therapy options are catered to a client’s unique needs and specific health concerns. Depending on the substance a person is addicted to, their tolerance level, and many other factors in their personal situations, any number of the following drug treatment options will be utilized:
Outpatient Drug or Alcohol Treatment
Inpatient Drug or Alcohol Treatment
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Providing unique treatment options is vital in getting the most effective results and reduce the chances of relapse. Depending on your specific coverage, a portion or the entire amount of treatment is covered by POMCO rehab coverage. The best way to find out the extent of your coverage is by referring to your plan and contacting a POMCO representative for the most up-to-date plan information.
As more research is compiled on addiction and more professionals accept that addiction is a chronic disease and not a product of poor choices and a lack of self-control, the coverage available will become more comprehensive. However, we are already moving in the right direction when it comes to rehab covered today. As it is now, POMCO has many benefits to support clients looking for rehab coverage.
