Cigna Drug Alcohol Treatment Programs

If you or someone you love needs help to end their battle with substance use disorder, also known as addiction, they must receive professional substance abuse treatment as soon as they ask for it.

Even for individuals who are ready to get help, addiction is a powerful disease that can cause someone to change their mind in a matter of minutes. People who are addicted to drugs and or alcohol are suffering and may use any reason not to go to treatment. One easy way of getting out of going to therapy is uncertainty about whether their insurance will pay for their treatment.

There is a popular misconception that insurance will not cover drug and alcohol treatment. Fortunately, the opposite is true, and most insurance plans do offer benefits that will cover most, if not all, of the fees at a quality drug and alcohol treatment center. The quicker a person is admitted into a professional Cigna covered rehab center, the more likely they are to remain willing and inspired to change their lives for the better.

Why Does Insurance Cover
Drug and Alcohol Treatment?

Getting help for your addiction to drugs and or alcohol should not be stopped because of concerns that insurance will not help pay for the cost. There is currently a federal law in place that requires insurance plans to include behavioral health benefits that cover detox and treatment.

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) is a federal law that requires that insurance plans include behavioral health benefits that are comparable to another medical diagnosis. These benefits are called behavioral health benefits.
