Does State Farm Cover Mental Health & Substance Abuse?
Yes, typically State Farm covers mental health treatment for those suffering with co-occurring mental health conditions in addition to their substance use disorder. However, coverage varies between plan, provider, and patient. Mental health conditions commonly exist alongside substance use disorders. Mental health treatment coverage may cover treatment for conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD), and more.
Since the ACA went into effect, all health insurance plans are required to provide some type of treatment for mental health disorder. Substance abuse, medically known as substance use disorder, is considered a mental health disorder, and health insurance companies would be required to provide some type of coverage. The extent of this coverage depends on what insurance plan you have, as well as the length, intensity, and type of treatment. It’s best to reach out to a State Farm representative before going to treatment to determine the extent of your coverage.
Does State Farm Cover Intensive Outpatient Rehab?
Intensive outpatient rehab (commonly known as intensive outpatient programs or IOPs), are a common form of addiction treatment for those who have completed residential treatment. As a type of mental health treatment, insurance companies are legally required to provide some type of coverage. However, whether or not State Farm will cover the entirety of the cost of an intensive outpatient program will depend on a variety of factors, such as where you are receiving treatment, what insurance plan you have, and how intensive your treatment is.
Does State Farm Cover Insurance Medications?
Yes, State Farm typically covers medications. However, State Farm’s coverage for medications may vary depending on the type of medication that your physician or treatment center prescribes you, your particular plan, and more.
Does State Farm Health Insurance Cover Therapy?
Under the Affordable Care Act, all health insurance plans must provide coverage for mental health treatment. This will likely include therapy, provided that a medical professional deems therapy a medical necessity. Overall, whether or not State Farm covers the entire cost of therapy will depend on the extent of your coverage and what degree of therapy is deemed medically necessary.
Does State Farm Cover Suboxone Treatment?
Suboxone is a type of medication that is sometimes used in the treatment of opioid use disorders. The drug is highly regulated and often dispensed under medical supervision. If Suboxone is prescribed as a part of medication-assisted treatment (MAT), it may be covered by State Farm health insurance. However, it’s always best to check with your State Farm representative as well as your medical professional to determine whether Suboxone is covered.

State Farm is a company founded upon the principle of kindness of being a “good neighbor.” In 1922, a retired farmer and insurance salesman, George Jacob Mecherle, started a single-line insurance company with the goal to help farmers. From there, State Farm grew into a business providing homeowners’ and life insurance, and later, branched off into banking and financial products as well. As of December 2017, they had nearly 867, 000 health insurance policies.3
