Does First Health Cover Drug Rehab?

Addiction is an all-encompassing disease, a mental disorder that breaks down the body and mind over time. It’s scary, overwhelming and confusing, like wandering a maze in the dark. One that gets progressively more complicated and painful to find your way out of the longer you’re in it.

There is a way out though.

Once you or a loved one see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel and make the conscious choice to seek treatment, a path opens before you. A team forms around you and starts the journey of recovery.

Rehab has worked wonders for so many millions of people over the years, all of whom started from the same place you are now. A place of wanting to change and exploring how.

In that process of searching for the right facility and treatment option for you, one common concern invariably and almost always arises: how can I afford this?

The cost of rehab can be a major hurdle and point of worry for those seeking professional help in overcoming a substance abuse disorder. Prices can be prohibitively high and the last thing you want is to have money be the main roadblock to a treatment program that could change or even save your life or the life of a loved one.

Fortunately, your insurance plan through First Health will very likely cover some portion of the costs associated with addiction treatment.

First Health and partner company Cofinity are both wholly owned subsidiaries of Aetna. They work independently but the values that define Aetna are shared across companies. Between First Health and Cofinity, they serve over 350 payers that represent 5.5 million members in addition to national PPO network access and programs that assist in managing costs for employee benefit plans. Crucially, their relationship with Aetna gives First Health added leverage to negotiate deeper discounts and better prices for you.

In regard to Cofinity, more than 200 health plans and insurance from them, including medical and dental network access, medical management, transplant networks and out-of-network claims management.

Impressively, more than 96% of people in the United States live within 20 miles of a First Health network provider meaning no matter where you are, in-network First Health centers for rehab are almost certainly nearby. Being one of the nation’s largest and most respected PPOs (Preferred Provider Organizations) is something that surely creates a little peace of mind during a turbulent and uncertain time.

How Long Does First Health Pay for Rehab?

The length of time that First Health will pay for treatment isn’t necessarily set in stone. Each instance of addiction is unique and each person going through it requires a different level and period of rehab to make it back to sobriety. To that end, a treatment facility will work in consultation with First Health to create a program that lasts as long as is necessary to yield the best result.

The length of any given treatment regimen takes into account many factors, not least of which is the severity of an addiction. The longer you’ve been addicted, it stands to reason that a longer time will be needed to undo the physical and mental dependency on the substance. Just as your treatment provider takes that into account, so too does First Health.

What Does First Health Cover for Rehab?

As far as what First Health covers, it will largely depend on the particular plan you or your employer has.

Because treatment for substance use disorders became an essential benefit for plans on the Marketplace after the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, in general you can now expect some level of coverage for addiction among private insurers like First Health as well.

While each plan will have its own specific set of benefits, broadly speaking, a major insurer like First Health will likely cover some portion of the typical rehab and treatment options, like:

  • Screenings and exams
  • Residential inpatient care
  • Partial hospitalization
  • Outpatient care

Making sure you’re using an in-network provider, that is a treatment center that has an agreement on the rates with First Health, is, of course, the key to unlocking the most advantageous pricing but through an extensive national network known as the First Health Complementary Network, which is used in a secondary position, First Health can get you savings even outside of your primary network.

And for those living in Michigan and Colorado specifically, Cofinity is among the leading networks in the region.

As with all insurance companies and plans, there will be deductibles, copays and coinsurance costs associated with treatment. The deductible is the amount you’re required to pay before your insurance coverage kicks in. This amount varies by plan and is dependent on your monthly premium so the more you pay per month the less your deductible would likely be. Copays are a flat rate you pay and coinsurance is the percentage of the service you’d pay after the deductible is met. Coinsurance is similarly related to the monthly premium, in that higher premiums will have a lower coinsurance percentage.

That said, before committing to any treatment, it’s critical to make sure you’re fully aware of what you’ll be on the hook for before and after your First Health insurance kicks in addition to what they will and won’t cover and if there are any pre authorizations required for specific types of care.
