If you are ready to start your substance use recovery journey, understanding how your insurance can help you pay for treatment will ensure successful first steps towards sobriety. It also gives you the power to understand your treatment from beginning to end.
The following article from our team at Phoenix House Florida, which specializes in drug addiction treatment in Tampa, explores how insurance can help you access the substance use treatment you need.
Firstly, drug and alcohol addictions are considered health problems in the state of Florida, meaning treatments are covered under most government-provided and private health insurance policies.
While the plan you have will define how much of the treatment your insurance will cover, with resources available online and from insurance and health care providers, it is easy to determine which drug and alcohol treatment centers in the Tampa area accept your insurance. As with any wellness treatment, finding out what is covered by insurance is often the first step to becoming a client with a practicing facility.
The easiest way to determine this is to contact your local treatment center. Phoenix House Florida provides this information on our website here. You can also call and speak to a team member who will be able to help you with your specific policy and treatment needs.
Finding out if your insurance is accepted for the type of treatment needed is the best place to start when seeking substance use treatment; however, there are often additional needs in the treatment that insurance is helpful for. Understanding if your policy covers these will be important to understand as well. These include, but are not limited to, helping cover prescription costs, fewer out-of-pocket expenses, and a more comprehensive range of access to treatment facilities.
If you have insurance and are seeking substance use treatment, everything you need for a successful start to your treatment is at your fingertips and Phoenix House Florida is here to help.
