Why do We Need Rehab Coverage?

With approximately 23.5 million Americans suffering from addiction or substance abuse, it’s clear this issue affects us all. Prior to research and innovation in the addiction treatment industry, it was believed that addiction was a moral failing combined with weak personality traits. We now know that this is not the case. Addiction is a chronic disease that is as treatable as something like diabetes or heart disease.

Addiction attacks the frontal cortex in the brain, essentially rewiring the way we process rewards and pleasure. This change in brain function gets worse with repeated use and as the physical dependencies to substances gets stronger. Professional treatment at a rehab facility is the best way to overcome this disease and manage symptoms to create a happy and sober future for clients.

When entering rehab, it is vital to focus on recovery. Clients who attend rehab with the stress and financial burden of paying the full amount of treatment are more likely to relapse or have problems in rehab. This is especially true because many individuals will need to leave work or school to recover, putting more stress on an already stressful situation. By covering a portion or the full amount of the cost, clients are able to focus on their recovery and to move forward from addiction.

How does Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas Rehab Coverage Work?

Since rehab coverage is included in the behavioral health benefits portion of the plan, it’s important to follow procedure when submitting a claim or seeking help at a treatment facility. With detox, inpatient, and some outpatient care, preauthorization is required before seeking help. The best way to ensure you are covered is by calling the insurance company, providing all the required information and following the process outlined by the insurance carrier.

What is Detox?

Detoxification is the process of abstaining from drugs or alcohol in order to rid the body of its chemical dependence to substances. This is a necessary component to most rehab programs. Depending on the substances or seriousness of addiction, detox may take days or even weeks to complete.

During this time, it’s common to experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, anxiety, fever, shakes, seizures and more. Medically assisted detox is the safest way to get started, as a professional can ensure the safety of the patient while also sometimes prescribing medication to help ease the unpleasant detox symptoms.

What are the Differences Between Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment?

Each BCBS TX rehab coverage plan is unique to the policyholder. In some cases, coverage for inpatient and outpatient services may be different. It’s important to decide which type of treatment will work best for your unique situation. The most striking differences between these two treatments include:

Outpatient:

  • Treatment often lasts longer than inpatient treatment.
  • Clients are able to live at home and continue work and school commitments.
  • This treatment is ideal for clients who have already gone through detox and can self-regulate their exposure to drugs and alcohol.
  • Weekly meetings are organized.
  • Clients are held accountable for their actions.

Inpatient:

  • Treatment typically lasts between 30-90 days.
  • Clients have access to medical help 24 hours per day.
  • The cost of food and accommodation is included in the price.
  • Clients will need to take time off work or school to recover.
  • Daily therapy sessions occur.
  • Clients are completely removed from any environment that may trigger substance abuse.

By deciding which type of treatment is best for your unique situation, you will be able to better plan and coordinate for any out-of-pocket expenses that may or may not be covered by insurance.
