Indiana, a state home to 6,785,528 people, is affected greatly by substance abuse.1 Nearly 1 in 12 Indiana residents are considered to meet the criteria of having a substance use disorder (SUD).2 In 2018, 1,104 drug overdose deaths alone involved opioids.3 Drug overdoses in Indiana have almost doubled in the past decade, reaching 1,809 in 2017—and more Hoosiers die due to drug overdoses than car crashes.2

If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction, you are not alone. One of the first steps in recovery is seeking treatment. Unfortunately, many do not get the care they need for many reasons, including the fear that getting care is too expensive. That’s where health insurance can help. Most health plans will cover some or all of the cost associated with rehab and detox centers.

Does Anthem Cover Rehab Treatment in Indiana?

In general, most healthcare plans in the United States must cover mental and behavioral health services in some capacity.7 This is because the Affordable Care Act (ACA), mandates coverage for 10 essential health benefits, including mental health and behavioral treatment and services.8 Specifically, your Anthem plan must cover substance use disorder treatment (including rehab in Indiana), inpatient mental and behavioral health services, and behavioral health treatment in some capacity.7 The extent to which a service may be covered will depend on your plan’s details, as well as whether the facility is within your Anthem network of providers. Moreover, you may be required to pay certain costs out of pocket (e.g., deductible or copays) before insurance kicks in.

What Rehab Programs Does Anthem BCBS Indiana Cover?

What Anthem BCBS Indiana will cover in terms of rehab programs will vary based on the plan you have and where you attend rehab. What’s more, your personal treatment plan will be unique to you. Common rehab programs that may or may not be recommended for you include the following:9,10

  • Medical detox. This involves ridding the body of substances (e.g., drugs or alcohol) in a medically supervised setting to help manage any withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced.
  • Inpatient programs. Most intensive care takes place in residential inpatient programs, which involve a patient staying at the facility overnight, either for a few days, weeks, or months, in some cases.
  • Outpatient programs. Care that does not involve an overnight stay is commonly referred to as outpatient care, and in outpatient programs, where the patient stays at home and then attends the program during the day, sessions are usually 1 or 2 times per week.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). As the name suggests, an intensive outpatient program is a more involved outpatient program. Generally, patients in IOPs receive care for a minimum number of hours each week (usually a minimum of 9 hours per week) at an outpatient care facility.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs). With a partial hospitalization program, no overnight stay is involved, and a patient would receive their care for a minimum number of hours per day a few times per week. Generally, PHPs are 4-8 hours per day, multiple days per week.
  • An aftercare program can include many different activities, as the term is used to refer to ongoing or follow-up care a patient may receive after completing rehab.

Does Anthem in IN Cover Mental Health & Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Due to the ACA’s essential health benefits mandate, your Anthem IN plan should cover both mental health and dual diagnosis treatment.7 According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a dual diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder is when someone has both a mental health and substance use disorder.11 For example, someone could be experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder and SUD, and both can negatively affect and exacerbate each other.11

Approximately 9.2 million Americans have a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, meaning it is rather common.11 Treating both conditions at once is generally the most effective treatment path, which is why it is beneficial that Anthem plans cover such treatment in some capacity.12
