Not everyone struggling with a substance use disorder gets help for their problem. In 2018, an estimated 21.2 million Americans ages 12 and older needed help for a substance use disorder, but only 3.7 million of these people received substance use disorder treatment in the last year.1 This stark difference means that the majority of people never got the help they needed, and both them and their loved ones continued to suffer because of it.
More People Covered by Health Insurance
At Vertava Health, we want to help more people struggling with substance use disorders get the treatment they need in order to find happier and healthier lives free from addiction and co-occurring mental health symptoms. Although some people may be in denial about their substance abuse problems, we recognize that another one of the biggest barriers to getting people recovery help is their ability to pay for addiction treatment. If health insurance doesn’t cover the program they need, not everyone is able to afford private pay. Unfortunately under these circumstances, some people may forgo treatment altogether.
To break down this barrier and make getting help for recovery easier, we have expanded are in-network health insurance providers. Each one of our Vertava Health locations now accepts more providers in-network so that more people can get the help they deserve. Together, this equates to 20 million lives covered, or 20 million people who could now start their recovery journey without insurance holding them back.
More Insurance & More Care
This in-network health insurance expansion is just one of many steps we are taking at Vertava Health to make our treatment programs more accessible for you and your loved ones. We are also working to open more facilities throughout the country as well as offer more programs at these facilities that help people in different stages of recovery. Together, these changes will help us help more people get the treatment they need and the opportunity for a new start.
To find out if you or someone you love is a part of the 20 million lives covered, contact us today. We will help you verify your health insurance and guide you through the next step.
