Addiction and substance abuse are major problems in the US, but a survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration concluded that up to 90% of people who need treatment in a rehabilitation facility do not receive it. Access to these services is absolutely critical, as 40-60% of people with addictions recover when they are able to receive treatment.
Although seeking treatment is the right thing to do, one of the major concerns for people is the cost of care. The good news is that many health plans offer some degree of coverage for substance abuse and addiction treatment.
If you’re one of the 73 million people served by an Anthem health plan in the US, you are in luck. Anthem and its affiliated health plans have a large network of providers located across the US, so finding recovery options that accept your insurance shouldn’t be too difficult.
