The Cost of Addiction Treatment
You’re Probably Covered
Women face a number of obstacles when it comes to getting much-needed addiction treatment for a substance use disorder. The most obvious is cost. Women may want to get help for a drug or alcohol problem, but they ask themselves, “How am I going to pay for it?”
Treating addiction, just like treating any other medical condition, can be a costly endeavor. Rehabilitation centers across the United States have gotten a reputation for charging outrageous fees. If you can believe it, some luxury treatment centers cost as much as $100,000 a month. Yikes!
To be sure, drug or alcohol rehab does require a significant financial investment – although it is money well spent! You can find an affordable treatment center that delivers results and provides you with excellent care. Women often think they are going to have to pay some exorbitant fee to get help. So, they never even take the time to look into how much treatment costs. We want to set the record straight.
There was a time when addicted people had to pay completely out of pocket if they wanted to go to rehab. Those days are gone. In today’s world, most major insurance carriers do provide coverage for addiction treatment. In the wake of the country’s opioid epidemic, many providers have even beefed up their coverage because they know that substance use disorder treatment saves lives.
Chances are, your health insurance covers a substantial portion of the treatment you will need to get sober. It may even cover all of it. You will never know if you don’t ask.
New Directions for Women Takes Most Major Insurance
Most women do not have the cash available to pay for a long-term stay at an addiction treatment facility. This is why at New Directions for Women, we accept most major insurance. We DO accept private pay, of course, but most of our families use insurance to pay for their treatment. This makes getting treatment possible – without breaking the bank.
New Directions for Women is a nonprofit treatment center. Our primary focus is helping women find freedom from the bondage of addiction. Because we are a nonprofit, we are able to provide exceptional (but affordable) services to patients with insurance or paying privately because we fundraise. This reduces the likelihood of out-of-pocket expenses and makes it more likely for the majority of your stay to be covered.
Here are just a few of the major carriers we accept:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Blue Cross
- United Healthcare
If you do not see your insurance carrier here, we encourage you to contact us anyway. We can take the necessary steps to see if your plan covers residential treatment or our Intensive Outpatient Program. We do not accept Medicare, Medicaid or government-funded insurance.
We Make Insurance Verification Easy
Finding out what your insurance covers can be a daunting task. This is why we take the lead when it comes to insurance verification. We believe you and your loved ones should not be bothered with the hassles and headaches that can come from dealing with the insurance company as you await treatment.
We have established long-term relationships with every insurance carrier we work with. This allows us to connect directly with agents who can streamline the admissions process so our clients can get in to see us right away. We will handle the entire insurance verification process for you and give you direct answers to your questions about your coverage.
