Does Elevance Health Cover Rehab in California?

Elevance Health—formerly Anthem in California—insurance may be able to cover all or at least part of the cost of drug and alcohol rehab in California. This depends on your insurance plan, your needs, and the provider. Elevance Health may partially cover detox (if it is deemed medically necessary), residential or inpatient treatment, outpatient rehab, and intensive outpatient rehab.

From February 2022 to February 2023, there were 11,047 reported drug overdose deaths in California.1 If you or someone you love is struggling with substance use, getting help from a professional rehab facility can be the first step in achieving recovery.

What Substance Use Treatment Does Elevance Health Cover in California?

Elevance Health (Anthem of California) may be able to cover substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. Depending on your plan, insurance may cover at least part of the cost of:

  • Medical detox. When an individual abruptly stops using drugs or alcohol, they may experience potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms. In a medically managed detox program, healthcare providers ensure that an individual rids their body of the substance safely and as comfortably as possible.
  • Inpatient or residential treatment. A person stays at the rehabilitation facility and receives structured care for 24 hours a day. In many cases, a person attends one-on-one or group therapy sessions throughout the day, and medications may be incorporated when necessary.
  • Outpatient rehab treatment. This form of treatment is more flexible as it does not require overnight stays and allows an individual to continue with their daily routine. It provides an appropriate treatment intensity to support an individual’s treatment goals and objectives.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP). An IOP is ideal for individuals who have safe and supportive home environments. In general, individuals receive 10-12 hours of group and individual counseling each week, and they’re encouraged to participate in a 12-step or similar program. Compared to a standard outpatient program, IOPs provide a higher level of care and more time is spent in treatment.

Does Elevance Health Cover Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorder Treatment?

Elevance Health (Anthem) may cover co-occurring disorder treatment in California. Co-occurring treatment refers to the treatment of a substance use disorder (SUD) as well as additional mental health disorders simultaneously. Depending on your level of coverage, co-occurring treatment may be at least partially covered.

The aim of a co-occurring treatment plan is to help people maintain sobriety and manage their mental illness at the same time. Laguna Treatment Center is in-network with Elevance Health (Anthem) in California and provides co-occurring disorder treatment.
