Types of Rehab Treatment Covered by Anthem
At Anthem, we understand that every individual's journey to recovery is unique. That's why we offer a wide range of rehab treatment options to cater to the specific needs of each patient. Our team is dedicated to helping individuals overcome addiction and reclaim their lives.
Our inpatient rehab programs provide a more intensive level of care and support to patients. These programs are designed to help patients focus solely on their recovery in a safe and structured environment. Patients stay at our facility for a certain period of time, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in their recovery journey.
Outpatient rehab programs are another option for those seeking treatment. These programs allow patients to receive care while still living at home. Outpatient programs are typically more flexible and allow patients to continue with their daily lives while receiving treatment.
Our team will work with each patient to determine which option is best for their unique situation.
At Anthem, we believe in treating the whole person, not just the addiction. Our rehab treatment options are designed to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of addiction. We provide a supportive and compassionate environment to help patients achieve lasting recovery.
Cost of Rehab Treatment
The cost of rehab treatment can vary greatly depending on the type of program and the length of stay. Fortunately, Anthem understands the importance of quality care for addiction recovery and covers a portion of the cost of rehab treatment for most plans.
This means that you can focus on your recovery with peace of mind knowing that you have financial support from your insurance provider.
However, you may still be responsible for co-pays, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket expenses. But don't worry, Anthem offers a wide variety of plans to fit your budget and needs.
If you're unsure about your coverage or have questions about your financial responsibility, review your plan documents or contact Anthem directly. Our dedicated team is here to help you navigate the process and get the care you need to achieve lasting recovery.
Determining Your Coverage for Rehab Treatment
It is important to understand the specific steps you need to follow in order to determine your coverage for rehab treatment. While Anthem offers coverage for substance abuse disorder treatment, the extent of coverage can vary depending on your specific plan. Here are some steps you can take to determine your coverage:
- Review Your Plan Documents: The first step is to review your plan documents provided by Anthem. These documents will outline the details of your specific plan, including information about your benefits and any restrictions or limitations.
- Contact Anthem Directly: If you have questions about your coverage or are unsure about certain aspects of your plan, contact Anthem directly. Our team of dedicated professionals is available to answer any questions you may have and help guide you through the process.
- Check Your Provider Network: It is important to ensure that the rehab treatment facility you choose is within Anthem's provider network. This will help ensure that you receive maximum coverage under your plan.
- Get Pre-Authorization: Some plans may require pre-authorization before receiving rehab treatment. This means that you must get approval from Anthem before beginning treatment in order for it to be covered under your plan.
By following these steps, you can better understand your coverage for rehab treatment and make informed decisions about your care. At Anthem, we are committed to helping our members access the care they need and achieve lasting recovery from addiction.
Understanding In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Providers
When seeking rehab treatment, it is important to understand the difference between in-network and out-of-network providers and how that affects your coverage.
An in-network provider is one that has a contract with your insurance company to provide services at a discounted rate. This means that your out-of-pocket costs for treatment will likely be lower when using an in-network provider.
On the other hand, an out-of-network provider does not have a contract with your insurance company. This means that they may charge higher rates for their services, which can result in higher out-of-pocket costs for you.
Some plans may only cover treatment from in-network providers, while others may offer some coverage for out-of-network providers as well. It is important to review your plan documents or contact Anthem directly to understand your specific coverage.
If you choose to use an out-of-network provider, you may be responsible for paying the difference between what the provider charges and what your insurance company deems reasonable and customary. This can result in higher out-of-pocket costs than if you had used an in-network provider.
Choosing an in-network provider can help ensure that you receive maximum coverage under your plan and avoid unexpected expenses. At Anthem, we offer a wide network of providers to choose from, so you can find a rehab treatment facility that meets your needs within our network.

The Various Types of Therapy Included in Rehab Treatment
Rehab treatment for substance abuse disorder often includes various types of therapy to help patients overcome addiction and build healthy coping strategies. These therapies may be used individually or in combination with others, depending on the patient's needs.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widely used therapy in rehab treatment that helps patients identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to addiction. CBT focuses on teaching patients how to recognize triggers, develop coping skills, and reframe negative thoughts into positive ones.
Group therapy is another common type of therapy used in rehab treatment. It involves patients participating in group discussions led by a licensed therapist. This allows patients to connect with others who are going through similar experiences while also learning valuable skills from their peers.
Family therapy may also be included as part of rehab treatment. This type of therapy involves family members participating in sessions with the patient to address relationship issues and improve communication. Family therapy can be particularly helpful for addressing codependency or enabling behaviors that may contribute to addiction.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that combines elements of CBT with mindfulness techniques. DBT focuses on helping patients regulate emotions, manage stress, and improve relationships with others.
These are just a few examples of the types of therapies that may be included in rehab treatment for substance abuse disorder. Each patient's treatment plan will be tailored to their unique needs and goals for recovery.
At Anthem, we believe in treating the whole person, not just the addiction, which is why we offer a wide range of therapies to help our members achieve lasting recovery.
Finding a Rehab Provider
Anthem understands that navigating substance abuse disorder treatment can be challenging and overwhelming. That's why we've built a network of providers that specialize in rehab treatment and offer comprehensive care to those in need.

Finding Support Groups for Addiction Recovery in Your Area
Support groups can be a valuable resource for individuals in addiction recovery. These groups provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals can connect with others who are going through similar experiences. They offer a space to share stories, receive encouragement, and learn from others.
Here are some steps you can take to find support groups for addiction recovery in your area:
- Contact Local Treatment Centers: Many treatment centers offer support groups as part of their aftercare programs. Contact treatment centers in your area to inquire about any support groups they may offer.
- Search Online Directories: There are many online directories that list support groups for addiction recovery by location. Websites such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) or Psychology Today can help you find local support groups.
- Attend 12-Step Meetings: Twelve-step meetings, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), are free and open to anyone seeking help with addiction recovery. These meetings provide a structured environment where individuals can connect with others and work through the twelve steps of recovery.
- Ask Your Healthcare Provider: Your healthcare provider may be able to recommend local support groups or provide resources to help you find them.
By taking these steps, you can find local support groups that fit your needs and provide additional resources for your journey to lasting recovery from addiction.
