BCBS Addiction Treatment Center

The Differents is a luxury drug rehab in Nevada. We are also a BCBS addiction treatment center, meaning we’re in-network with this major insurer and many others.

By partnering with insurance companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield, we’re able to make high-quality addiction treatment and mental health care available to more people so they can reclaim their lives and begin their recovery.

An Overview of Blue Cross Blue Shield Coverage

Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) is a group of dozens of independent and locally operated health insurance companies that provide coverage to millions. BCBS offers different plans, such as:

  • HMO Plans: These require that members choose their primary care physician, who manages their care overall and refers them to specialists who are part of the BCBS network. These plans usually have lower premiums and out-of-pocket costs, but flexibility in choosing healthcare providers is limited.
  • PPO Plans: There’s more flexibility to choose your provider with a PPO plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield, and referrals aren’t required for specialists. You may be able to see in- and out-of-network providers, but the costs are lower if you stay in-network. You generally pay higher premiums and out-of-pocket costs than an HMO plan.
  • EPO Plans: These combine features of HMO and PPO plans. They offer lower premiums, requiring members to use the network of doctors and hospitals that are part of the plan. You don’t need a referral to see a specialist.
  • POS Plans: A POS plan offers a blend of features from HMOs and PPOs. You choose a primary care physician and get referrals for specialists, but you might have more flexibility to see out-of-network providers, although at higher costs. There are some cost-saving benefits of a POS plan and more flexibility than an HMO plan.

At The Differents, we are an addiction treatment center in Nevada that partners with Blue Cross Blue Shield to help clients receive the care they need and deserve.

Does BCBS Cover Addiction Treatment?

Blue Cross Blue Shield covers addiction treatment, although your out-of-pocket costs will depend on where you receive care, your plan and your medical needs. Insurers cover addiction treatment services because leading medical organizations recognize it as a chronic disease.

When you’re struggling with addiction, it affects your brain’s structure and function as well as your behavior. Addiction, like other chronic diseases, requires ongoing treatment and management. Along with the disease element, there are other reasons insurers will cover addiction treatment, including promoting overall health and well-being, which reduces long-term health costs associated with untreated addiction.

Types of Addiction Treatment Programs Covered by BCBS

United Healthcare will offer coverage for various addiction treatment programs that can meet your needs at different parts of your recovery journey.

Examples of the types of programs that may be covered include:

  • Detoxification: Also known as detox or withdrawal management, this is the first part of an addiction treatment plan involving supervised management of withdrawal symptoms. You receive medical supervision, medications for managing withdrawal symptoms and supportive care.
  • Medication-assisted treatment: MAT integrates FDA-approved medications with behavioral therapies and counseling to treat substance use disorders. This approach is often used for opioid and alcohol addictions. Medicines can minimize cravings and withdrawal symptoms, so it’s easier to focus on treatment and recovery.
  • Inpatient treatment: Inpatient or residential programs provide a structured environment with 24/7 care and intensive therapies. You live at the treatment center for a period of time and receive support for all of your needs. Blue Cross Blue Shield could cover some or all of the costs of room and board, medical and psychiatric care, therapy in group and individual settings, and educational and life skills workshops.
  • Partial hospitalization: A PHP integrates a high level of care similar to inpatient treatment with the ability to return home or to a sober living house at the end of the treatment day. Insurance coverage might include structured daily sessions, individual and group therapy and medical monitoring.
  • Intensive outpatient program: IOPs are less intensive than a PHP, including multiple therapy sessions each week, skill-building sessions and relapse prevention education.
  • Outpatient rehab: A flexible treatment option, you can attend therapy sessions and live at home while maintaining regular responsibilities. Coverage can include counseling, weekly therapy sessions, and ongoing support and monitoring.

At The Differents, we provide all of the above levels of care as part of our substance abuse treatment in Reno.

We are here to help.

Does BCBS Cover Mental Health Services?

Blue Cross Blue Shield also covers primary mental health services, as well as dual diagnosis treatment when you have co-occurring mental health conditions along with addiction.

Types of mental health and dual diagnosis services that may be covered include:

  • Individual therapy.
  • Group and family therapy.
  • Consultations with psychiatrists.
  • Crisis intervention services.
  • Outpatient mental health programs.
  • Integrated dual diagnosis treatment in inpatient or outpatient settings.
  • Medication management.

The Differents is a provider of dual-diagnosis treatment in Nevada.

How to Use Insurance to Pay for Addiction Treatment

Using insurance to pay for rehab can reduce the financial burden that might otherwise come with treatment. If you have Blue Cross Blue Shield, you can contact your insurer directly to learn about your coverage specifics. You can ask about the treatment programs covered, exclusions and the extent of your benefits.

At The Differents, we can also help. We offer a simple insurance verification process. If you provide us with your insurance information, our team will contact BCBS to verify your benefits and explain your coverage options. If your plan is in-network with The Differents, you’ll pay lower out-of-pocket costs.

You can also find out what specific treatments and services are covered by your plan, like inpatient or outpatient programs, and you can ask about deductibles, copayments or co-insurance you might be responsible for. Some plans may require pre-authorization for specific treatments, and our team at The Differents can help you get these.

What Does It Mean If a Rehab Center Is
In-Network with BCBS?

As a BCBS addiction treatment center, we are in-network with this insurer. We have agreed to provide services to BCBS members at negotiated rates. This means lower out-of-pocket costs for you, including lower deductibles and copays. It also simplifies the billing and pre-authorization process.

Choosing an in-network BCBS addiction treatment center provides financial and logistical advantages, so you receive high-quality and affordable care. You can leverage your insurance benefits to focus on recovery with manageable treatment costs.
