Choosing to seek addiction treatment is a brave and potentially life-saving decision. But one of the most significant barriers to following through is how to pay for rehab.

So, will insurance pay for rehab if I’m ready to go?

Will Insurance Pay for Rehab?

Will insurance pay for rehab? The short answer is yes. According to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2008, all health insurance providers must provide mental and behavioral health coverage, including substance use disorder. This requirement goes further than simply mandating coverage.

Before the enactment of the ACA, most insurance providers placed limits on access to mental health care and addiction treatment that were more restrictive than physical health care. Now federal parity laws require insurance companies to provide coverage for mental health and substance use disorders at the same level as other health needs. Therefore, health insurance companies must provide coverage for all conditions with an official diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).

Still, your particular insurance policy and state of residency determine your specific coverage, so it is essential to understand your benefits when choosing a treatment program.

How Much Does Rehab Cost Without Insurance?

Will insurance cover rehab? There are thousands of rehab programs available nationwide. However, not all provide the same programs and services. Researching your options is essential to ensure that the rehab you choose is best suited to your needs. The cost of rehab varies greatly depending on several factors, such as:

  • The type of program
  • Length of treatment required
  • Location
  • Treatments offered
  • Amenities offered
  • Need for dual diagnosis treatment
  • Need for extra medical care

While there are free or low-cost rehab centers, they have income requirements to qualify. Publicly-funded rehab facilities typically offer a boilerplate, barebone approach to treatment that is often ineffective.

There is no denying that rehab can be expensive. However, in the long run, the cost of addiction far exceeds the cost of recovery. Most people spend a minimum of thousands of dollars feeding their addiction. Add to that potential legal expenses, medical costs, and lost wages directly related to addiction, and the cost of treatment beings to pale.
