How Blue Cross Blue Shield Works for Addiction and Mental Health Treatment
Navigating the world of health insurance can be daunting, especially when seeking substance use disorder treatment or a program for co-occurring disorders. However, you have a powerful ally if you’re a Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) member. BCBS is a nationwide network of insurance providers widely accepted at many drug and alcohol rehab and addiction treatment facilities, including Behavioral Health Centers.
BCBS operates through 36 independent and locally operated insurance providers across America, ensuring a broad reach and extensive coverage. Whether you’re a federal employee, part of a corporate group, or an individual or family plan holder, BCBS provides a range of coverage options to suit your needs.
When it comes to your policy covering treatment, BCBS works straightforwardly. Once you’ve chosen a treatment facility, such as Behavioral Health Center, the facility will typically verify your insurance policy for coverage. This process involves confirming the specifics of your plan with the addiction treatment center, including the types of treatments covered and any out-of-pocket costs you may be responsible for.
