How To Use Your Health Insurance To Get Into a Florida Treatment Center

Are you ready to get help yourself or a loved one? Addiction is a frightening disease that is hard to recover from on your own. Many people find that if they are addicted to a substance, it’s too hard to quit alone.

Withdrawal symptoms can be hard to cope with and often emotions run high and low as your body rids itself of toxins. That is why a treatment center is so important for starting the recovery process.

Treatment helps people with substance abuse disorders get clean and on the road to recovery in a safe, non-judgemental environment. We’re here to help and want you to succeed and reclaim your life.


Using Health Insurance to Get Into a Florida Treatment Center

Treatment centers in Florida usually take private insurance and can help you with the process of getting your paperwork started. Insurance companies are bound by the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA). This federal law states that group health plans and health insurance issuers that provide mental health or substance use disorder (MH/SUD) benefits must treat them like any other benefits.

This means that there shouldn’t be a lot of restrictions in place to access those benefits if your plan offers them. Copays, paperwork, and other aspects of getting into treatment should be reasonable.

If you have a plan that covers out-of-network providers, you should be able to get into a Florida treatment center using your insurance benefits. In some cases, your insurance may even be “in-network”.

If you don’t know how to start the process of enrolling in treatment, give us a call. We can walk you through it and answer any questions you have.


Will My Insurance Pay if I’m Not Addicted?

You may not be sure your insurance provider will pay for your treatment because you’re not sure you’re addicted. There are different types of substance abuse disorders and you may not think you’re as bad as your friends or other people you know.

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to addiction. If you feel like you need help, you probably do. You will never be unwelcome at our treatment facilities.

There is a saying that addiction is a mental, spiritual and physical disease. Recent research says that addiction is a brain disease. When we use substances that change our mood, our brain changes and needs more of it.

When you need more of a substance, you experience withdrawal symptoms. Many of these can be too difficult to handle on your own. This is why many people start to have behavioral changes as they become more in the grips of their disease. People who are addicted often withdraw from activities with others, hang out with “friends” you’ve never heard of and spend more time away from the people they hold dear.

People with a substance abuse disorder may also have increased drug-seeking behavior. They may lie, steal or manipulate others to get their drug of choice. They may even resort to buying illicit drugs when they can’t get more of their drug of choice.
