What Types of Addiction Treatment Does Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan Cover?

Recovery looks different for everyone, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment. Your doctor will determine what continuum of care is right for you based on factors such as the substance you use, how long you’ve been using them, and any environmental triggers you may face.

Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan may be able to cover at least some of the cost of medically necessary addiction treatment, including:6, 7

  • Medical detox: Although not everyone will need medical detox, it is an important part of recovery for some patients. Certain substances, such as alcohol and benzodiazepines, can cause unpleasant and even dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Medical detox can better ensure a patient’s comfort and safety by monitoring and managing withdrawal symptoms.
  • Inpatient treatment programs: With inpatient programs, patients reside at the facility for the duration of treatment. Patients can expect to participate in different types of group and individual therapy (e.g., cognitive-behavioral therapy) to examine harmful beliefs, patterns, and self-concepts.
  • Outpatient treatment programs: After an inpatient program or if a patient has a less severe substance use disorder (SUD), an outpatient program may be a good fit. Outpatient programs offer many of the same benefits as inpatient programs but allow patients to live at home and attend treatment during the day.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOP): An IOP allows patients to receive more specialized care while still living at home. An IOP may be a good choice for patients who can live at home without using substances but require additional assistance in overcoming their addiction. Patients attend therapy sessions for several hours each week.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHP): A PHP is similar to an inpatient program in that it involves full-time, intensive treatment. Patients spend the evenings at home and attend treatment 5 or more days per week, up to 6 hours per day.
  • Aftercare: Aftercare programs involve any type of ongoing treatment, such as 12-step meetings like A.A. and N.A. When patients complete an inpatient or outpatient program, an aftercare program can help them sustain their recovery.

Does Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan Cover Mental Health & Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Yes, per the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan may be able to provide full or partial coverage for mental health and dual diagnosis treatment in Texas and out of state.4

If you struggle with a mental health disorder (e.g., anxiety, depression) and substance use disorder (SUD), you are not alone. When a mental health disorder and SUD occur at the same time, it’s known as a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. Studies show that around 50% of those who struggle with mental illness also have SUD.8

It’s important to treat co-occurring disorders together. Research suggests that integrated treatment has a far better outcome than treating only one or the other, and there are well-established treatment programs that professionals use for those with a dual diagnosis.9

How Long Does Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan Cover Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab Programs?

What’s the Difference Between In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Drug Rehab Centers?

One of the important things to consider when evaluating drug rehab centers is whether the program is within the Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan provider network. Every health insurance plan has a network of providers that are contracted to provide care to members at a specific price.10
