Does Insurance Cover Detox?

Following the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, addiction recovery treatment has been designated as an “essential” health benefit by most insurance providers, making it eligible for coverage under most insurance plans. 

It’s important to note that some types of recovery programs may not be fully covered. For instance, your insurance plan may only offer coverage for outpatient services or detox programs in Port St. Lucie, and inpatient rehab services may not be covered at all. When in doubt, contact your insurance provider for further clarification.

What is the Affordable Care Act?

The Affordable Care Act was put in place to ensure more affordable and inclusive healthcare options. It provides tax credits that reduce the cost of health coverage for individuals with low income. The Affordable Care Act also protects those with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or being charged higher premiums based on these conditions. 

This law mandates that mental health conditions and substance use disorder treatments must be regarded as equally important as physical health treatments. Thus, services for treating these conditions should be offered by all plans to comply with the act.
