What Rehab Programs do Blue Cross Blue Shield of California Cover?

BCBS of California may be able to partially cover substance abuse rehab treatment. Depending on your plan, your insurance may cover at least part of the cost of:

  • Detox – Detox is the process of getting rid of the harmful substances in your body. A professional drug detox program uses medications or therapies to help limit withdrawal symptoms and prevent potentially harmful side effects.
  • Residential or Inpatient Treatment Near Me  – In a residential or inpatient facility, a patient will stay at the center 24/7 and receive counseling from addiction specialists. A benefit of this type of rehab program is that a patient can focus solely on their recovery and be removed from potentially negative environments.
  • Outpatient Rehab – This type of addiction treatment is more flexible as it does not require you to stay overnight or live at the treatment facility. You can attend school or work and still receive an appropriate treatment intensity to support your recovery efforts.
  • Medications – As you go through a rehab program, there are certain medications that may be used to help you manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings you have for a certain substance.

Does BCBS of California Cover Mental Health & Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment?

Co-occurring disorder treatment such as treatment of depression or anxiety as well as addiction treatment may be covered under mental or behavioral health services.
