What Types of Addiction Treatment Does Magnolia Health (Ambetter) of Mississippi Cover?

Ambetter from Magnolia Health provides at least partial coverage for all members who are accessing treatment for substance use disorder (SUD). The type of treatment you access depends on several factors such as what substances you are using, how long you have been using them, and whether you have other mental health concerns that need to be addressed.

The following addiction treatments are common and may be covered by your Magnolia Health insurance plan:7, 8

  • Detox programs: Although not always required, detox is often the first step on the road to recovery. Detox is the process in which the body rids itself of substances, such as drugs or alcohol. Prescription medications are sometimes administered by a physician to help combat the uncomfortable and potentially dangerous side effects of withdrawal.
  • Inpatient treatment programs: Inpatient programs (sometimes referred to as residential treatment) gives patients the opportunity to live at a facility so they can focus on their recovery. Patients typically stay for a set amount of time (e.g., 3 months) and participate in individual and group therapy to learn about the nature of their addiction as well as coping mechanisms to support their recovery.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHP): PHPs allow patients to live at home while attending treatment during the day. Similar in structure to inpatient programs, patients can expect to attend treatment anywhere from 4 to 6 hours per day, 5 or more days per week.
  • Outpatient treatment programs: Though outpatient programs can vary in terms of time commitment, patients can live at home while in treatment. Most outpatient programs take place in clinics, hospitals, and rehab facilities. Patients can expect to attend the program approximately 10 to 12 hours each week for 3 to 12 months.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOP): More time-intensive than traditional outpatient programs, IOPs allow patients to live at home while in treatment. Most IOPs require a commitment of 3 to 4 hours per day, approximately 4 to 6 days per week.
  • Aftercare: Designed to support long-term recovery, aftercare includes activities, interventions, resources, and support to help patients cope with stress and triggers once treatment is complete. Aftercare may involve joining a rehab center’s alumni program, living in a sober living home, attending 12-step meetings (e.g., A.A.), and participating in individual and group counseling sessions.

Magnolia Health member services can help you access treatment for SUD. Prior authorization from your primary healthcare provider may be required before your insurance coverage kicks in.9 Call the number on the back of your insurance card to speak with a representative to learn about the details of your plan’s coverage for addiction treatment.

Does Magnolia Health (Ambetter) of Mississippi Cover Mental Health & Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Yes, Ambetter from Magnolia Health should provide at least partial coverage for mental health and dual diagnosis treatment. The coverage complies with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), ensuring all individuals with health insurance have some coverage when accessing these treatments.5

Approximately half of the individuals who have substance use disorder (SUD) also have a co-occurring mental health disorder, such as:10

  • Anxiety.
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Bipolar disorder.
  • Depression.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

When an individual experiences SUD and a mental health disorder at the same time, it is referred to as a “dual diagnosis.” While having a mental health disorder does not cause SUD (and vice versa), people with a mental health disorder are twice as likely to turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate.11

Dual diagnosis treatment integrates care for both diagnoses.11 Research suggests that treating both disorders at the same time provides better patient outcomes.

How Long Does Magnolia Health (Ambetter) of Mississippi Cover Inpatient Rehab Programs?

How long you stay in an inpatient rehab program for substance use depends on several factors, including the substances you are using, how long you’ve been using them, and if you have a mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression.

When considering your options for rehab, keep in mind that individuals who stay in treatment for 3 months or longer have better outcomes and improved chances of long-term recovery.12 The longer you stay in treatment, the higher your chances for maintaining long-term sobriety.

The length of time your insurance plan will cover your rehab stay depends on the specific plan you have. You can call the number on the back of your insurance card to speak with a Magnolia Health representative who can walk you through exactly what your insurance plan covers.

What If Magnolia Health (Ambetter) of Mississippi Doesn’t Cover Inpatient Rehab Programs?

As an Ambetter from Magnolia Health member, at least some of the costs of an inpatient rehab program will be covered by your insurance plan. No matter what type of insurance plan you have, you should anticipate some out-of-pocket expenses, such as your deductible, copays, and coinsurance.

While the cost of detox, rehab, and other types of addiction treatment may feel overwhelming, you have options. There are several ways you can pay for rehab, including:

  • Financing options and payment plans offered by the rehab facility.
  • Grants and scholarships offered by some government programs and rehab facilities.
  • Sliding scales to adjust the cost based on what you can pay.
  • Loans from banks or family and friends.
  • Crowdfunding and fundraising.

No matter what your insurance coverage looks like, getting treatment now is the most important decision you can make. Finances should never be a deterrent from your recovery. Financing options are available to those who need them.

The Difference Between In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Drug Rehab Centers

When considering your rehab options, stay aware of your Ambetter from Magnolia Health plan’s requirements for accessing treatment in-network and out-of-network.

Rehab centers that are in-network with Magnolia Health have an arrangement with the insurance provider to offer all treatments and services at a discounted rate. Whenever possible, try to work with a rehab that is in-network with your plan. This will not only save you money, but it will save you time and effort as it’s easier to get insurance coverage when you’re attending an approved, in-network rehab.

If you do choose an out-of-network provider, keep in mind that your plan may cover less of the costs or none of the costs at all, depending on the restrictions placed on your plan. Call the number on the back of your insurance card to ask about in-network rehab centers. Or, call the rehab center directly to ask if they are in-network with Magnolia Health.
