Compassion Behavioral Health accepts Cigna health insurance. The best place to start is with us. Call our admissions coordinators at 844-660-0084 to have your insurance verified. Cigna does provide coverage for drug and alcohol treatment services, but how much and how long make a difference.

You can also call Cigna’s 24-hour customer service that can guide you in the right direction. The important thing to know is that Cigna supports a healthy recovery from drugs and alcohol and is on your side.

Metal Levels of Cigna Plans
Cigna insurance has metal levels as other insurance companies do that range from bronze, the lowest, to platinum, the highest. Here is what you can expect from each.
- Bronze level. This level has low monthly payments and a high deductible. Coverage for drug addiction treatment is covered, but expect higher out-of-pocket costs from your deductible. Once you meet your deductible, Cigna will pick up the costs, but only for
in-network treatment facilities.
- Silver level. With slightly higher monthly payments and a slightly lower deductible, Silver plans typically cover 50 to 70 percent once your deductible has been met. Again, if the treatment center is in-network, Cigna will cover more.
- Gold level. This plan has higher monthly premiums and a lower deductible but offers greater coverage. Coinsurance for in-network treatment range from 50 to 80 percent once you meet the deductible.
- Platinum level. This is the highest level and has high monthly payments but a low deductible. You can expect the most coverage with this plan. Coinsurance for in-network treatment centers is usually 10 to 30 percent after meeting the deductible.
The type of plan you have will affect how much coverage you get. The state you live in and the state you will be receiving treatment also play a role in the overall cost of treatment.
What About In-Network and Out-of-Network Treatment Centers?
Unlike other insurance plans, Cigna does not require the treatment center of your choice to be in-network. That said, an out-of-network treatment center may end up costing more. In some cases, Cigna will pay less than they would for an in-network treatment center. In other cases, they won’t cover anything.
To be on the safe side, it’s recommended to work with a treatment center that has a relationship with Cigna. This way, you can be assured that most services will be covered to some degree.
Don’t Doubt Treatment. Addiction Always Costs More.
There are many barriers to addiction, and cost is one of them. While we understand that the initial cost of treatment can feel overwhelming, it’s much more costly to continue using drugs and alcohol. Addiction is a financial burden, but it will also destroy your mental health, your physical health and your relationships with others.
Many people who continue to abuse drugs and alcohol have trouble at work or school. If you lose your job and don’t have enough money to pay for your habit, it can lead to things you never imagined possible such as lying or stealing.
If you take out a loan, ask to borrow money or use your credit card to help pay for addiction treatment services, you are in much better position than if you continue using. You are investing in your health, your future and the ones you love. Today is the day you have more options to get clean and sober.
