Your Health Insurance Pays for Cigna Addiction Treatment

Man discussing Cigna addiction treatment in Palm Springs, CA

Thanks to the legislation of the past several years, your health insurance works to pay for your Cigna addiction treatment, just as it pays for other healthcare needs. These law changes occurred mainly because the American Medical Association publicly recognized addiction as a legitimate disease. By doing so, health insurance companies must provide benefits for this disease, just like it does for any other kind.

What does this mean for you? It means that the care you receive in a Cigna drug rehab and under the terms of your insurance policy must be equally paid for. This is comparable to what your policy covers for heart disease, asthma, diabetes, or cancer. When you have insurance that provides payments for office visits, lab tests, screenings, assessments, medications, and hospitalizations for those other diseases, it must provide the same for addiction recovery.

In the past, health insurance could deny any payment for drug or alcohol addiction treatment. You could even lose your policy altogether if the insurance company found out you suffered from addiction. Today, however, insurance companies provide assistance to help you overcome substance use disorders.

How does treating your addiction help the insurance company save money? First, consider how having a substance use disorder is detrimental in many ways. It makes you more likely to visit the ER for overdoses, infections, and other diseases, for instance. Second, it also makes you more likely to require hospitalization and treatment for a wide variety of long-term diseases. This means helping you overcome your addiction is in the insurance company’s best interest.

What Level of Care and Which Services Does Your Cigna Insurance Support?

When you undergo an addiction assessment from your doctor, it establishes your medical need for drug rehab treatment. This assessment confirms to the insurance company that you will not get well on your own. Additionally, it shows you will continue suffering an addiction unless you receive therapy and the right level of care in Cigna addiction treatment.

Cigna Addiction Treatment in Palm Desert, CAFortunately, when entering Cigna drug rehab in Palm Desert, California, your insurance company advises what level of care it financially supports. For example, if your assessment shows a severe addiction, then your insurance covers programs like detox and residential rehab treatment. A mid-level addiction usually justifies the insurance company paying all or part of your detox with PHP (partial hospitalization program), IOP (intensive outpatient program), or OP (outpatient) programs. Of course, this varies from person to person and which policy they have in place.

Whatever the level of care your insurance supports, your policy usually also covers therapies and other treatments. This means you suffer less out-of-pocket cost when receiving the treatment accepted by your policy. Of course, you have the option to request a higher level of care if you believe you need more inclusive treatment. After all, your treatment is about achieving your best chance of long-term recovery.

Does Cigna Need To Be In-Network?

Some Cigna plans require a treatment center a customer uses to be in-network, while others do not. Sometimes using a center that is out-of-network increases the person’s out-of-pocket expenses. It’s important to check with Cigna to determine the details of any addiction program a person is interested in.

The company can explain exactly how much they cover, how much of the deductible has been met, and what cost the individual will be expected to cover. If a customer plans to use an out-of-network treatment program, they should check with Cigna first in case they require a pre-certification.
