Cigna Coverage for Behavioral Health: Using Your Insurance for Alcohol and Drug Rehab
Cigna Coverage for Alcohol and Drug Rehab
Cigna is a nationwide health insurance provider which offers coverage for mental health and substance abuse services. How much is covered depends on individual plans and the facility themselves, whether they are in-network or out of network. Cigna’s website has also included an educational series as well as providing articles, tools, and podcasts to help those facing addiction.
Cigna’s Behavioral Health division helps those seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction with an approach to provide every person with patient-centered, quality, and consistent care. Depending on the individual plan, inpatient and outpatient rehab coverage will vary.
Treatment programs for inpatient substance abuse may include:
- Alcohol and drug detox
- Partial hospitalization for alcohol and drug use disorders
- Inpatient treatment for alcohol and drug disorders
- Treatment programs for outpatient substance abuse may include:
- Individual, group, and family therapy
- Detox medication management
- Anti-craving medication management
- Intensive outpatient treatment
JC Recovery Center is In-Network with Cigna
Not all Cigna plans require the treatment center to be in-network, but usually, there are higher out-of-pocket expenses for patients using out-of-network providers. Cigna also usually requires a pre-certification, meaning it involves Cigna reviewing the request against nationally recognized guidelines.
JC Recovery Center has become an in-network provider with Cigna, helping to cut down the costs for Cigna policyholders.
