Does Your Policy Cover Rehab?

The journey to recovery from addiction can be very difficult at times. People who are working to overcome substance dependence often face challenges and obstacles as they move forward in their recovery efforts.

ComPsych: Working With Rehab Centers to Provide Treatment

It’s not uncommon for people to feel uncertain about the details of their insurance plan. It can be challenging to understand the particulars of an insurance policy; figuring out the benefits, terms, and conditions can be tiresome. So, if you’ve been feeling stressed as you try to find out what your ComPsych plan covers as far as addiction treatment is concerned, you’re not alone!

Sometimes, calling the insurance company can help you find the exact answers to your questions about benefits for mental health treatment and coverage for addiction rehab. But, sometimes, it might be easier to get information from other professionals who have an in-depth understanding of addiction treatment. That’s where we come in! Here at 1st Step, we work to help our clients learn more about their coverage and benefits, helping them to figure out whether or not their policies will cover treatment at our facility. 

First, it’s important to note that ComPsych is one of the largest employee assistance program (EAP) providers in the world. This insurance company works to offer EAP, wellness, and behavioral health services to thousands of organizations.

Does My Treatment Center Have to Be an In-Network Facility?

Most of the time, people who need health care wonder about whether they should get treatment from an in-network or an out-of-network facility. It can be challenging to sort through the details of an insurance plan to find out where you can go to get the care that you need. But, it’s definitely helpful to know what kind of care ComPsych will cover and where you should go to get addiction treatment.

ComPsych’s coverage is mainly geared towards in-network facilities. So, it offers coverage for health care and addiction treatment providers that have an arrangement with ComPsych.

Behavioral Health Treatment Coverage Through ComPsych

In many cases of addiction, individuals suffer from co-occurring disorders. Those who are living with behavioral health disorders substance abuse problems have what is called a “dual diagnosis”.

Some commonly seen co-occurring disorders are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Trauma 

Sometimes, people who suffer from these disorders develop addictions as a result of their behavioral and mental health problems. Many individuals grow dependent on medications they use to treat their disorders, which eventually leads to abuse and addiction. Other times, people may turn to excessive alcohol use or illicit drug use in order to cope with the challenges of having a mental health disorder.

In other cases, people may develop behavioral or mental health disorders as a result of addiction. Often, individuals who struggle with substance dependence and abuse become isolated from their loved ones and suffer from loneliness, grief, shame, guilt, and many more negative emotions. This may lead to depression, causing individuals to suffer from addiction and clinical depression at the same time.

It’s important for those who have co-occurring disorders to seek professional help immediately in order to deal with the effects of substance abuse and behavioral health challenges.

ComPsych understands that individuals may need care for mental and behavioral health issues. So, they offer a comprehensive managed behavioral health program. This program provides exceptional care to those who need it and helps to manage the costs of care. 

ComPsych Coverage for Medical Detox

Often, those who need treatment for substance abuse must first go through a detox process. Through a detox program, individuals can safely and successfully end alcohol or drug use and prepare for the next level of care in their treatment process, whether it be inpatient care, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), or an outpatient treatment program.

Your ComPsych insurance plan may provide a certain amount of coverage for your medical detox process. But, the particulars of this coverage usually depends on the facility. Is it an in-network addiction treatment center? Or is it out-of-network? Will the detox be an inpatient or outpatient process? The coverage ComPsych provides may depend heavily on the answers to these questions.

You can certainly speak with your employer and contact the professionals at ComPsych in order to learn more about your benefits. We can also help you here at 1st Step Behavioral Health. 

Does ComPsych Cover Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment?

Again, each ComPsych plan is unique and the details will vary. But, in many cases, this insurance provider will cover various types of treatment for addiction, including inpatient and outpatient programs.
