What Substance Abuse 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 professional detox program, the aim will be to ensure these symptoms are managed so an individual can go through detoxification safely.
  • Inpatient or Residential Treatment – A person will stay at the rehabilitation facility and receive structured care for 24 hours a day. In many cases, a person will attend one-on-one or group therapy sessions throughout the day, and medication 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 will provide 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 will receive 10-12 hours of group and individual counseling each week, and they will be encouraged to participate in a 12-step 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 Mental Health & Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment?

Anthem may cover co-occurring disorder treatment in California, treatment of substance use disorder (SUD), as well as additional mental health disorders under mental or behavioral health services. Depending on your level of coverage, mental health treatments may at least be partially covered.

The aim of a co-occurring or dual diagnosis 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.
