Does Insurance Cover Treatment for Addiction to Heroin or Opioid Painkillers?
Coping with addiction is a challenge no matter what the circumstances. Unfortunately, many people never seek out the care they need to recover from their addictions to heroin or opioid painkillers because they assume they can’t afford it. If you’re concerned that you or your loved one may not be able to pay for the assistance you need, don’t despair. The good news is that in most cases, insurance will cover the costs of the patient’s entire treatment plan. Though some people have policies that require co-pays or deductibles, treatment is generally fully covered after these requirements are satisfied. No matter what your situation may be, it is essential that you understand all the available options as you set out on your journey to better health. Treatments and medications that may be covered by your insurer include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Continuing Care
- Day Treatment Programs
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
- Education and Aftercare Programs
- Family Therapy
- Friends and Family Support Groups
- Individual and Family Counseling
- Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
- Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
- Mindfulness-Based Sobriety
- Psychiatric Services
- Relapse Prevention Therapy
