Once you decide to get sober, you are faced with a long list of decisions. How do you want to get sober? Will you get sober by attending peer support recovery groups or will you go to rehab? Will you go to rehab close to home or far away?  Will you go to rehab inpatient or outpatient?  If you want to go to rehab, can you afford it? 

The good news is that you don’t have to make all of the decisions at once and you’ll have help understanding the decisions you do make. You might start by reaching out to your family physician to determine if rehab would be the best choice for you and which rehab they recommend. At Thrive Treatment, we understand that it can be overwhelming to sort out the details when you are ready to get help for your addiction. We’re here to help you understand your Magellan rehab insurance benefits and help you get the most out of them. 

What Is Magellan Insurance?

Magellan insurance works within other insurance plans to manage behavioral health and pharmacy benefits. Through its support of innovative technology and personal relationships, Magellan insurance is helping its customers to achieve healthy lives. 

Magellan works with other health plans, managed care organizations, labor unions, governmental agencies and other organizations to increase access to behavioral health care. Magellan equips primary care physicians with resources to better assess those suffering from addiction or other mental health disorders. It also provides physicians with a behavioral health toolkit so that they have information needed to refer you to the right type of care. Your physician will be able to refer you to a Magellan rehab which will ensure a smooth transition of care. Magellan insurance believes in providing you and your doctor with the resources to get you to the most appropriate treatment for you. 

Can I Use My Magellan Insurance to Go to Rehab?

Often the first step in finding your way to rehab is seeing your physician. Magellan encourages its providers to screen all of their patients for substance use disorders and to refer them to treatment.

 Magellan recognized substance use disorders as chronic conditions and encouraged its providers to use an evidence-based approach to treatment. Magellan rehabs are encouraged to utilize various methodologies and treatments including medication-assisted treatment, personalized coaching, and supervised detoxification. Magellan rehabs also recognize the importance of recognizing and treating any co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety. In response to the continuing opioid crisis, Magellan insurance also has created opioid and chronic pain management resources to assist those patients who have found themselves addicted to opioids as they manage their pain.
