Does Blue Cross Blue Shield Cover Drug Rehab?

If you have Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) insurance, your benefits may include coverage for drug rehabilitation and/or other forms of drug treatment. Many BCBS policies include coverage for various types of drug rehab, including certain types of inpatient and outpatient care.

However, it is important to understand that Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance is provided through 36 independently operated companies that are located throughout the United States, as well as by licensees that are authorized to provide BCBS coverage outside the U.S.

For example, in Pennsylvania alone, Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage is provided through four Blue Cross and Blue Shield Companies including:

  • Capital BlueCross
  • Highmark Blue Shield
  • Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Independence Blue Cross

Given the wide range of BCBS policies, it will be important for you to confirm the specifics of the policy that you hold through Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Pennsylvania.

One of the many services that we provide at White Deer Run is working with individuals such as yourself to help you determine whether or not your Blue Cross Blue Shield policy will cover drug rehab.

How Much is Covered?

What Types of Drug Rehab Does Blue Cross Blue SHield Cover?

Comprehensive drug rehab often involves detoxification, which is also known as detox, followed by residential or inpatient care. After an individual has completed a residential or inpatient program, depending upon his or her progress and ongoing needs, he or she may either return home or transition into a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or an intensive outpatient program (IOP).

Some BCBS insurance policies cover inpatient treatment, residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient programs. As noted in the answer to the previous question, the types of drug rehab that Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Pennsylvania will cover will depend upon the specifics of your policy.

If you have your insurance card accessible when you contact White Deer Run, a member of our team will be happy to contact Blue Cross and Blue Shield to confirm your benefits and verify what types of drug rehab your policy will cover.

How Much of the Cost Is Covered?

How Much of the Cost of Drug Rehab Is Covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield?

Each BCBS policy will have certain limitations on coverage for drug rehab and other treatment-related services. These limitations may involve the amount of money that the policy will provide for drug rehab, as well as the amount of time that the person may remain in drug rehab and still have his or her treatment paid for by Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

For example, some Blue Cross Blue Shield policies may involve annual or calendar year limitations on the cost of drug rehab that the insurance provider will pay for, while other policies may place lifetime caps on financial expenditures for drug rehab.

To confirm how much of the cost of drug rehab that your policy with Blue Cross and Blue Shield will cover, be sure to have your BCBS information handy when you contact White Deer Run. Our experts can get you the insurance-related answers that you need.
