Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield Drug Alcohol Treatment Programs

Are you searching for an Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield drug rehab program for yourself or a loved one? At Absolute Awakenings, we are here to help you.

If you or someone you care about is finally ready to get help for an addiction to drugs, alcohol, or both, one common concern is how to cover costs for a professional drug or alcohol treatment program. Substance use disorder treatment centers are now less expensive, which is fortunate as they are much needed. However, at the end of the day, they are still high-priced. The good news is that most insurance plans can cover most of the costs associated with drug or alcohol treatment programs.

In 2014, the Affordable Care Act expanded and invoked a federal law requiring all insurance companies to include benefits that cover substance use disorder and other behavioral health services that offer drug and alcohol treatment. Before the Affordable Care Act and its expansion, such benefits were not required.

Why is the Affordable Care Act Important to People Who Are Addicted?

The ACA made entry into a quality drug and alcohol treatment program faster and easier than it used to be. Before the ACA, individuals had to own expensive insurance plans that provided extensive coverage for hundreds of medical conditions. Now that the government supports the fact that addiction and alcoholism are treatable diseases of the mind and emotions that stem from numerous influencers, the ACA requires that insurance policies meet the needs of the ever-growing population of addiction and alcoholism in the United States.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

The Affordable Care Act will provide one of the largest expansions of mental health and substance use disorder coverage in a generation. Beginning in 2014 under the law, all new small group and individual market plans will be required to cover ten Essential Health Benefit categories, including mental health and substance use disorder services. They will be required to cover them at parity with medical and surgical benefits which requires group health plans and insurers that offer mental health and substance use disorder benefits to provide coverage that is comparable to coverage for general medical and surgical care.
