Blue Cross Blue Shield
Too often, people don’t get the help they need for addiction because they don’t realize that their insurance provider might cover a BCBS rehab center. Don’t let the fear of potentially high costs stop you from at least reaching out and investigating your coverage options.

How Can Blue Cross Blue Shield Help With Recovery?
Blue Cross Blue Shield represents 36 independent companies offering health insurance to over 170 million Americans. If you are one of them, you can get help with your recovery through a BCBS addiction treatment program.
However, as with all insurance providers, you should contact Blue Cross Blue Shield directly to review your insurance policy and figure out exactly which South Florida BCBS rehab programs or services are covered under your plan.
You might be surprised to find that even though you don’t get blanket coverage for rehab, you can still get financial support for BCBS rehab in South Florida. Too often, people think that for their insurance to work, the insurance provider has to cut a check for whatever the individual chooses. But that’s not how it works.
Your insurance is usually broken down into categories of services provided. For each category, there is a degree of financial support that Blue Cross Blue Shield offers in exchange for you covering some part of it, like a copay or a deductible.
Depending on your plan, a copay is what you have to pay out-of-pocket each time you go for something like a doctor’s visit. A copay might be $30 if you have a cheaper plan or $0 if you have better coverage.
Tip: You can usually find your copay amount printed on your insurance card.
If you look at different treatments for rehab, a BCBS rehab in South Florida will always include therapy. This is often individual and group therapy. Group meetings like AA or NA don’t include any out-of-pocket costs except transportation to and from the meetings, but individual and group therapy that you have other than this will likely come with a fee.
This fee is typically charged per visit.
For example: If your BCBS addiction treatment program includes cognitive behavioral therapy, and you meet with a therapist once per week, that therapist might charge $200 every week for that meeting.
If your insurance plan has a copay of $30, you might be required to pay $30 for every week that you meet with your therapist, and your insurance then covers the remaining $170. Now, what if your therapist charges even more? It doesn’t matter; your copay stays the same.
A lot of treatment at a BCBS rehab center involves medication, especially if you are dealing with mental health disorders or detox services. Your plan may or may not include a copay for medications. More likely, your plan could include complete coverage for generic medications but require you to meet your deductible for all others.
Your deductible refers to how much money you have to pay yearly for any and all health services out of pocket before your insurance covers all remaining costs. This figure is inversely related to your monthly payment.
If you have a deductible of $4,000 and you have already paid $2,200 for unrelated medical services, you might be required to pay $1,800 out of pocket for things like therapy or medication. Once you reach that point, your insurance covers anything else you have.

Types of treatment
What Types of Treatment Does BCBS Insurance Cover?
Again, the different types of treatment covered are based on the plan you have.
Blue Cross Blue Shield covers things like overnight hospitalization and medication during detox. Depending on the plan you have, you might still have to cover a copay at the hospital or a deductible for your prescription medications, but that still means you’re only paying a fraction of the total cost for your treatment.
In terms of outpatient services, Blue Cross Blue Shield typically covers all outpatient treatment at qualifying facilities, including partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient programs. This allows you to visit a rehab facility for your treatment sessions, attend individual and group therapy, and get medication to manage cravings or mental health disorders.
Blue Cross Blue Shield covers most medications prescribed by a rehab facility as long as they are prescribed as part of your inpatient or outpatient program. Things like anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications are very common, especially if you are dealing with mental health disorders.
Mental Health Services
Blue Cross Blue Shield is required to cover the cost of basic mental health services, even if that is part of your BCBS rehab in South Florida, as dictated by federal law. All insurance providers are. So, if you have a co-occurring disorder and your South Florida BCBS rehab includes therapy or medication for a mental health disorder, you may or may not be required to provide a copay or meet your deductible, but it will be covered to some degree.
