How is Beacon Health Options Rehab Coverage Different?
Since Beacon Health Options focuses on behavioral health coverage, they can provide coverage that is more comprehensive to their members who are otherwise insured with carriers that are more basic. They understand that addiction and other behavioral disorders are diseases that need to be treated the same way other chronic illnesses are treated. This makes Beacon Health Options alcohol rehab coverage and drug rehab coverage a possibility.
A comprehensive and easy-to-navigate website allows members to gather information on their condition and read about the options available for treatment. With a strong focus on clinical practices and providing caring and understanding service, clients with addiction or co-occurring conditions never feel marginalized or disrespected. Beacon Health Strategies acknowledges the resiliency of its members while also showing compassion and respect for each situation.

Why is Behavioral Health Coverage Important?
Addiction is a chronic disease that affects the brain in a similar fashion to other mental health disorders. By essentially rewiring the brain and changing the way rewards and pleasure are processed, addiction creates a physical dependency on substances such as drugs or alcohol. In the United States, approximately 23.5 million people suffer from addiction.
This impacts numerous individuals and families, but also has a grave effect on the U.S. economy. The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that $700 billion per year is spent on addiction. Between crime, healthcare and costs relating to reduced productivity at work, it’s clear that addiction impacts us all.
Out of the 23.5 million Americans who suffer from addiction, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that only 11 percent actually receives treatment. This is partly due to the cost of rehab. Many individuals fear they cannot afford it and, therefore, do not bother seeking help.
