Magellan Health is a major health insurance plan that is focused on behavioral health. The increased awareness in mental health and rising addiction makes Magellan Health the fastest-growing health insurance company in the nation. Since Magellan Health is strictly focused on behavioral health, they are an excellent option for helping fund addiction treatment. They understand the importance of addiction treatment and mental healthcare that most health insurance plans do not understand. The specific coverage for addiction treatment varies per individual plan; therefore, you should contact Magellan to find out the specific coverage that you will receive.
The services that are covered by most Magellan plans are:
Medical detox is necessary for you to safely and comfortably go through withdrawal. The costs of detox include room and board, paying the medical staff, medications, and other therapies.
Many people need the help of medication to recover from addiction. Medication-assisted treatment is commonly used for opioid addiction, but it can be used for other addictions (e.g. alcohol). Methadone, suboxone, and vivitrol are common drugs that are used in medication-assisted treatment. They act as opioid replacements to avoid withdrawal and reduce physiological cravings while you work on the psychological issues that trigger your addiction.
Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab
Rehab is the most costly part of addiction treatment. A quality rehab center in Florida costs approximately 33,000 dollars per month. Magellan health insurance significantly cuts the out-of-pocket costs that you will need to by covering a certain number of days, percentage, and list of treatment centers.
Approximately 60 percent of people who suffer from addiction also suffer from another mental health disorder (e.g. bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, etc.). In addition to treating the addiction problem, the co-occurring disorders must be treated as well. Magellan covers the medication and therapies needed to treat the co-occurring disorders.
Halfway houses and sober living facilities are a common requisite following rehab because they provide structure, teach accountability, and gradually introduce living in the outside world as a recovering person. Certain Magellan Health plans will help cover the costs of staying in transitional care facilities.
