Evergreen Health Insurance is a health insurance and Medicaid broker based in Colorado. It connects patients with top insurance carriers like Aetna, Humana, Cigna and others. In order to attend drug rehab with Evergreen Health Insurance, it’s important to check with your individual plan and the facility you plan to attend. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, many treatment programs for addiction and substance abuse must be covered as an essential health basic.
Addiction is considered the most serious of substance abuse disorders. Before the Affordable Care Act was implemented, less than 1% of the population affected was able to get treatment. What the ACA has essentially done is integrate addiction treatment into the entire health care concept. They’ve recognized it fully as the debilitating, yet treatable, disease that it is. Many people still tend to view addiction as a problem with willpower and think it can be overcome by being a stronger person. The truth is that addiction is a mental health issue. It often presents with additional mental health issues or causes new issues due to chemical changes in the brain from addictive substances.
Because substance abuse and addiction have not been taken seriously in the past, only patients in very advanced stages have gotten treatment. If patients with diabetes were treated like substance abuse patients, they would only get their treatment covered when they were in an advanced stage of vision loss or kidney failure. The comparison is even more apt when you realize that about 23 million people in America suffer from addiction and substance abuse, which is fairly close to the same number of people with diabetes. With new laws under the Affordable Care Act, those suffering from addiction will be able to get treatment in the early stages of the disease.
In order to attend drug rehab with Evergreen Health Insurance, you should first call and verify your benefits and coverage for your selected facility. You can find out details from your provider, but if you choose to attend Beaches Recovery in Jacksonville, Florida, you can verify your benefits with us. Paying for treatment is one of the top concerns patients have when seeking help for addiction and substance abuse. When you have a health insurance plan, many of these costs can be covered or reduced, which allows you to get the help you need.
An important consideration when you begin searching for treatment facilities is whether they are JCAHO accredited or not. Many times insurance providers use this as a criteria in determining what type of coverage they will allow for the facility’s programs. Beaches Recovery is a JCAHO accredited facility and offers a wide range of care, including:
We treat most substance abuse disorders including alcohol, meth, cocaine, heroin and opiates.
Since medical detox is very often a first step to battling addiction, Beaches Recovery partners with local detox facilities to get you started in this process. We can determine your need for detox through a pre-admissions assessment.
Addiction is a serious disease that claims many lives every year. Don’t wait until you’re in the advanced stage of addiction to seek treatment. Call Beaches Recovery today at 866-605-0532 for more information about programs that can help.
