People seeking intervention and treatment help for family members or other loved ones are typically under a lot of stress, and having to find out what programs and services are covered by an insurance policy can make it even more difficult.
Having insurance benefits that include substance abuse and mental health coverage can be a big help with covering the cost of addiction treatment. Some of the services covered may include drug testing, assessments and evaluations, individual counseling, group therapy, detoxification, inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient treatment and more. Each policy may be different, though, when it comes to which services are covered and at what percentage of the total cost.
If a person calls their insurance company and asks what their benefits are, they'll typically get a generic response and a list of in-network facilities. Sometimes this is all they need, but in most cases they're led to believe they won't get much coverage for other programs and wind up missing out on further options.
Family First Intervention offers a complimentary insurance verification procedure to help people determine what course of action will best fit their situation.
"By having us help verify your insurance benefits for behavioral health, we can assist you in identifying more programs and services that will be covered. This opens families up to more choices for treatment options, including facilities that you may not have thought were covered," says Family First Intervention and Addiction Treatment Services founder Mike Loverde. "The business model of the insurance industry is to take in more money than it pays out, so having someone who knows the ins and outs of coverage and benefits can go a lot further when trying to identify what your out-of-pocket expenses would be."
Although no payment is ever a guarantee when dealing with insurance and individual policies can be completely different, it definitely helps to have a knowledgeable advocate. With the Affordable Care Act being implemented, this service is even more in demand since there should be more access to treatment for people who need it.
Family First Intervention has helped hundreds of people throughout the country successfully enter treatment centers for substance abuse problems. For more information or to speak with a counselor about intervention and rehab options, contact Family First Intervention by calling 1-888-997-4525 now.
