Insurance Drug Rehab
Many addicts and their families wonder if their health insurance pays for addiction treatment, just as they are ready to seek help. While each policy and its coverage may be different than the next, the Affordable Care Act changed the way many insurance companies view addiction rehabilitation. You can contact your insurer to find out if they pay for rehab of substance use disorders, which is on the list of ten essential elements of health benefits for insurance that are included under the ACA.
Because more insurance pays for drug rehab, more addicts can seek treatment than ever before.
Why Most Health Insurance Pays for Rehab
Besides the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, there are several reasons why substance abuse treatment is now more accessible to addicts. One of those is the American Medical Association’s recent recognition of substance addiction as a true medical condition. By recognizing addiction as a disease, doctors have been enabled to make diagnoses and charge insurance companies for services provided to addicts under medical billing and coding categories of the International Coding of Diseases, also known as ICD-10. Another reason more insurance pays for rehab is that the ramifications of addiction are far-reaching and more expensive than providing for payment of recovery. Addicts suffer more hospital visits, diseases, and other health problems than other Americans. They also create immense stress on the people around them, such as family members. This stress causes health problems for their loved ones, who must then seek additional medical and therapeutic care, such as cardiac care, psychotherapy and other forms of treatment.
