Understanding the Level of Care that is Covered
If you have Magellan Health as your insurance provider, there are different plans that the company offers. Magellan Health will begin paying for treatment once you have paid the copays, set fees and deductible. How much you have to pay before Magellan Health insurance kicks in varies between plans. The services that are covered and how much they are covered also vary. Because there are partnerships that Magellan Health has with other providers, this may impact the total cost of treatment as well.
To know exactly what is covered, call Magellan Health directly. The insurance provider is well-versed in substance abuse treatment and can lead you in the right direction. Getting help is always ideal and costs individuals, businesses and society as a whole much less than continued drug and alcohol use.
In-Network vs Out-of-Network Treatment Centers
In-network treatment centers tend to get more help from Magellan Health than out-of-network treatment centers. This doesn’t mean that you are limited to in-network rehabs, but it’s important to weigh all the costs and benefits of choosing a particular treatment facility.
Some Magellan Health plans do require their members to see in-network providers only, while others give bigger discounts for these providers. For other plans, there are no limitations on which providers you can see, meaning that both out-of-network and in-network rehab centers will be covered equally. The good news is that Magellan Health, as a whole, covers substance abuse treatment extensively.
Here are a few examples of the types of services covered by Magellan Health:
- Medically supervised drug and alcohol detox
- Addiction treatment medications
- Inpatient rehabilitation stays
- Dual-diagnosis treatment
- Family, group and individual therapy
- Transitional care
Our Tracks of Treatment and Level of Care
Compassion Behavioral Health accepts most major insurances, including Magellan Health. Our treatment center works with individuals who are dealing with a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder. We offer two tracks of treatment: our Substance Abuse Track and our Mental Health Track. Both tracks allot the appropriate amount of attention to the addiction and the mental illness.
The levels of care that we offer include:
- Partial Hospitalization. Our partial hospitalization program provides recovering addicts with group, family and individual counseling during the day. Sober housing is provided at night.
- Intensive Outpatient. Our intensive outpatient program is designed for recovering addicts who are working through their recoveries. Individual and group therapy helps these individuals manage cravings and triggers.
- Outpatient. Our outpatient program offers a lower level of care than our IOP, so it’s best for recovering addicts who still need extra support to keep them sober. Clients receive a group and individual session each week.
Magellan Health is experienced in all levels of substance abuse treatment and will offer some coverage for these services. Plus, Compassion Behavioral Health controls costs by offering partial hospitalization and outpatient programs as opposed to costly inpatient programs. We also have a number of tools, therapies and resources to help our clients lead a life of sobriety.
Weighing the Cost of Treatment with the True Cost of Addiction
Here at Compassion Behavioral Health, we know that the cost of treatment can be a barrier. We believe that when someone has the desire to get clean and sober, they should have every opportunity to do so. Otherwise, this could be a missed opportunity that then results in long-term drug and alcohol use. We try to keep our costs as low as possible while also accepting most major insurances.
What’s also important to remember is the true cost of addiction. Substance abuse costs our nation $600 billion annually. Research shows that drug addiction treatment reduces health and social costs by far more than the treatment itself. Treatment is also less expensive than other alternatives, such as placing drug addicts in prison. For example, the average cost for methadone maintenance is $4,700 for a single person, whereas incarceration is $24,000.
Additionally, for every dollar invested in drug rehab services, a return of $4 to $7 is made in reduced drug-related crime, theft and other criminal justice costs. So, when considering the initial cost of treatment, remember all of the money that you will be saving in the long run. This is an investment in your future, and perhaps, your life.
