Insurance Help for RehabWhen you are battling an addiction, the cost of treatment may actually deter you from getting the help you need.

Depending on your insurance plan, you may have all or at least some of the cost of rehab treatment covered.

Understanding Insurance Help for Rehab Treatment

When you are enrolling in an inpatient program, the majority of insurance policies will cover the first 30 days of your treatment. If you have health insurance, you should call you provider and ask about your coverage. As you prepare yourself for the financial aspects of drug addiction treatment, make sure to:

  • Question the length of time in rehab that will be covered
  • Get a list of eligible rehab centers that your policy will cover
  • Ask about other services after rehab, such as aftercare or outpatient programs
