First Health Insurance Coverage for Drug & Alcohol Rehab Treatment

Does First Health Insurance Cover Drug or Alcohol Rehab?

If you or your loved one needs rehab treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, one of your concerns might be how to pay for it. While most health insurance policies include some form of coverage for substance abuse rehabilitation, coverage often varies from state to state, as well as within health insurance plans. Some health insurance plans may offer more options for treatment than others, and this coverage depends on the benefits offered by your health insurance company.

AAC is in-network with many insurance companies. Your addiction treatment could be free depending on your policy and deductible.

About First Health

First Health Group Corp., along with Cofinity, merged with Aetna in May 2013, which has consequently formed a treatment network providing numerous treatment options for members of these plans.1 First Health operates nationwide, with strong coverage networks in Michigan and Colorado. The company provides coverage for 5.5 million people, and more than 96% of Americans are within 20 miles of a network provider.2

In addition, Aetna partners with Medicare to offer certain types of Medicare coverage and Medicare supplement plans.3

First Health Coverage Levels and Coverage Plans

As a major health insurance provider, First Health may cover the usual treatment options offered by most major health insurance plans. Many insurance plans cover such services on an inpatient or outpatient level of care, depending on the specific needs of the person. However, while your insurance company may cover certain addiction treatment, this doesn’t mean you will qualify to receive all of these covered benefits. Typically, you also have to have your case reviewed by an insurance specialist who will determine if you meet the criteria for the coverage.

First Health insurance coverage has different plans with various levels including PPO plans. Some of these plans may cover more of the out-of-pocket cost of drug treatment. You need to contact First Health to determine the benefits provided in your coverage plan.

Typically, most insurance plans have a network of providers that provide specific levels of health insurance coverage. At times, these networks can be dependent on a certain geographic location. For example, if you live in Florida,  your plan may only cover treatment providers in that state. If you choose to seek treatment in another state, First Health may not cover the costs. In some cases, there may be situations in which an out-of-network provider can provide addiction treatment, though the coverage may be more expensive.
