What Substance Use Treatment Does Anthem California Cover?

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 Anthem California Cover Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorder Treatment?

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 Hospital is in-network with Anthem in California and provides co-occurring disorder treatment.
