Everyone deserves the best possible chance at recovery. Since 1986, we have been helping facilitate treatment using insurance coverage and we are dedicated to providing top clinical treatment for addiction. Investing in treatment is an investment in the future, and it is pretty hard to make a case that money should be a deciding factor when it comes to accepting help.
The bottom line is that the cost of treatment for addiction should be weighed against the legal, financial, and family consequences that struggling individual often find themselves facing. Of course, these types of woes pale in comparison to the health problems that develop as a result of addiction.
Using Insurance for Treatment
Insurance can often help offset (or completely cover) the cost of receiving treatment at our rehab centers. We have billing personnel on staff to help you utilize your insurance for treatment.
We are happy to help by contacting your insurance carrier and processing a request to see what level of care is covered for you or your loved one. Collecting health insurance reimbursement for treatment received by our clients is a complicated process and there is not a list of providers that are definitely covered or not covered – every case is unique.
In order to verify your coverage, our team of experts will need to complete an initial assessment of the drug or alcohol abuse and then contact the insurance company. All information we gather during our initial consultation is held completely confidential. The type of information that will expedite our inquiry into whether or not the insurance policy will pay for treatment includes:
- Insurance Company
- Phone Number
- Behavioral Benefits Provider
- Pay Type
- Subscriber ID
- Group Number
- Policy Holder
- Relation to Person in Need of Treatment
- Length of Employment
- Subscriber’s SSN
- Subscriber’s Date of Birth
- Person in Need of Treatment’s SSN
- Person in Need of Treatment’s Date of Birth
Insurance Billing for Rehab Services Is Our Expertise
After a decade years of successfully helping clients arrange payment for the treatment program that is most appropriate for them, we have developed unparalleled expertise in navigating the often confusing process of arranging reimbursement from insurance companies for long-term treatment. Sunrise Recovery’s admissions and accounting departments have special knowledge and experience in helping our clients receive the best possible payment arrangement. In some cases, when treatment is required immediately, the client will pay in full and then we will work on getting some or all of their fees reimbursed by the insurance company.
Sometimes, the insurance company will indicate that residential drug rehab treatment is not covered (or is only partially covered). We can assist you in reviewing the relevant health insurance policy to see if coverage is available for any and all parts of the treatment program we recommend.
Some of the insurance companies that we have worked with in the past include (note partial list only and every patient and policy are unique in what coverage will be offered by the carrier):
- Anthem Blue Cross
- Blue Shield of California
