Ambetter Insurance for Substance Abuse Treatment and Mental Health Rehabilitation

Ambetter provides affordable, accessible healthcare that is tailored to each individual. The insurance company is deeply committed to its members, being involved in the community as well as doctors and hospitals. After all, being healthy is more than visiting the doctor’s office. It also requires healthy living and lifestyle choices. In addition, Ambetter offers a wide variety of valuable tools such as programs, educational materials and support. All of these resources help members take charge of their health.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction and currently carry a policy with Ambetter, you can take control of your life and get the help that is needed. Compassion Behavioral Health is in Ambetter’s network, so you can get the addiction treatment resources you’re in need of. How much is covered depends on your policy and the state you live in, but you can expect some of the best coverage at an in-network facility like ours.

Compassion Behavioral Health

Compassion Behavioral Health offers personalized addiction treatment services to our clients. We treat co-occurring disorders, when a person is diagnosed with both a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder. Roughly half of people with mental illness will suffer from addiction at some point in their lives. Knowing that there is a strong relationship between addiction and mental health, more treatment centers are making their treatment more comprehensive.

However, only our treatment center offers two distinct tracks of treatment. We realize that most people do not start off with both an addiction and a mental health problem. One starts first and exacerbates the other. For example, a person with anxiety may start drinking and using drugs to calm them down. Giving attention to the addiction is important, but if the anxiety isn’t treated, the addiction will likely start back up.

The two tracks of treatment we offer include the Substance Abuse Track and the Mental Health Track. In addition to choosing the best route of care, our clients receive individualized treatment that includes:

  • Healthy coping skills
  • Relapse prevention techniques
  • Skill building
  • Anger management
  • Processing feelings
  • Self-care
  • Goal setting

Finding the Best Level of Care with Ambetter

Aside from our tracks of care, Compassion Behavioral Health provides three levels of care based on each person’s needs: Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient. All clients have access to medical and psychiatric care as well as family, group and individual counseling. This is just one more way that we cater to those who trust our treatment facility with their recovery. And, with Ambetter health coverage by your side, much of this care can be covered.

If you have Ambetter insurance coverage, there are two ways to determine what is covered. You can contact Ambetter directly and find the best treatment centers covered under your plan. Or, if you like what you see from Compassion Behavioral Health, you can connect with one of our admissions counselors and determine how much will be covered. Our specialists are familiar with Ambetter health coverage and will provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision.

Understanding Your Essential Health Benefits

The treatment services that are covered by Ambetter vary based on the plan. However, Ambetter states on its website that, “no matter which Ambetter plan you choose, you can always count on access to high quality, comprehensive care that delivers services, support and all of your Essential Health Benefits”. Substance abuse and mental health services are considered an Essential Health Benefit, and therefore, should be covered to some degree no matter which plan you have.

Additional Essential Health Benefits include:

  • Emergency services
  • Hospitalization
  • Various therapy services
  • Outpatient and ambulatory services
  • Prescription drugs
  • Laboratory services

Metal Levels for Ambetter Health Insurance Plans

Here are the various plans available through Ambetter:

  • Ambetter Essential Care (Bronze). This plan covers your essential basic needs such as doctor’s visits and immunizations. It has lower monthly payments and a high deductible.
  • Ambetter Balanced Care (Silver). This plan is considered the best if you are on government assistance. It is referred to as “balanced” because it has a good balance on premiums and out-of-pocket costs.
  • Ambetter Secure Care (Gold). The highest plan of them all, the Gold plan has higher monthly premiums and low out-of-pocket costs. It’s also more comprehensive and covers more medical needs.

Why does your level make a difference for addiction treatment services? All Ambetter health plans provide coverage for substance abuse and mental health treatment services but how much will be covered varies.

So, if you have a Bronze plan, you can still receive treatment, but your out-of-pocket costs will be higher. If you have a Gold plan, your payments will be lower. And, it’s reassuring to know that Ambetter often helps pay for maintenance appointments. Recovery is a lifelong process, after all.

Rehabilitative services are expensive. This can be a deterrent from getting the help you need, but don’t let it. There will always be barriers to treatment, but help is available. Continuing to use drugs and alcohol will end up being far more expensive than a month or two in rehab. Plus, addiction is much more than a financial burden. It ruins relationships, declines your mental and physical health and steals your future.

The best time to make a change for the better is now. Today, you have more options than you may have tomorrow, and that includes having help from Ambetter insurance. If you continue abusing drugs and alcohol, you could lose your job and your health insurance. It’s also harder to get help from loved ones.
