Types of Rehab That May Be Covered by Health Plan of Nevada

Health Plan of Nevada may cover several different types of rehab for those in need of addiction and mental health treatment. Covered forms of rehab or treatment may include:

  • Detox, which involves monitored care while withdrawing from drugs and/or alcohol.
  • Inpatient or residential, which is when you live at a facility while receiving treatment.
  • Partial hospitalization, which is when you receive treatment during the day at the treatment center and return home at night.
  • Intensive outpatient, which involves several visits a week to a treatment center. Like partial hospitalization, it does not provide housing; however, American Addiction Centers offers housing for clients in its partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs who do not live locally.
  • Outpatient, which usually involves weekly visits to a therapist or treatment center.
  • Therapy and counseling, which is when you talk one-on-one with a therapist about your substance abuse.

How Do I Use This Plan to Pay for Rehab?

therapist with young manPaying for mental health and substance abuse services can be a little confusing, especially if you aren’t familiar with how your plan works.

You’ll likely need to see a provider that’s in-network or you will have higher out-of-pocket costs or your services will not be covered. In-network means that the provider has a pre-arranged agreement with Health Plan of Nevada. Out-of-network is any provider that doesn’t have predetermined arrangements with Health Plan of Nevada.2

Even when you see an in-network provider, you will usually be charged a fee when you receive care. Often, you will need to pay a copay or coinsurance when you use inpatient services or visit an outpatient provider. A copay is a fixed amount you pay for a covered healthcare service. You may have to pay it before or after you meet the deductible. Coinsurance is a percentage of the cost you pay for a covered service before or after you’ve met the deductible. A deductible is an amount you must pay out of pocket before your insurance company will begin to cover services.3,4,5

In some cases, you’ll also need prior authorization from Health Plan of Nevada either before you enter treatment or soon after you’re admitted. Prior authorization is when the insurance company determines that care is medically necessary.6

Will My Employer Find Out?

Because of the stigma associated with substance abuse, you may want to keep your addiction treatment a secret. There are many reasons for this: you might be worried that if your boss finds out you’ll get fired; or you might be worried about how your coworkers and peers may react.

American Addiction Centers and other treatment programs are required by law to protect your health information, which means they cannot disclose information to people outside the treatment center that would identify you as a patient.7

However, there are certain circumstances where your information can be released to outside parties, such as the following:7

  • You provide written consent.
  • The court orders disclosure of your records for a criminal investigation against patients or personnel of the program.
  • Medical professionals need to know your medical history in an emergency.
  • The information is used in scientific research or a program audit or evaluation.
  • The information is requested in a case of suspected child abuse or neglect.
