What Addiction Rehab Programs does Anthem BCBS Nevada (Elevance) Cover?

There is a range of addiction treatment programs in Nevada available to those who need it. The type of addiction treatment you receive will be individualized to ensure you get the exact treatment you need. Factors that may influence the type of treatment that is best for you include the substances you are using, how long you have been using, and whether or not you have any other mental health conditions.

Addiction treatments that may be covered by your Anthem BCBS of Nevada (Elevance) plan include:6, 7

  • Medical detox: This supervised process helps safely manage a patient’s withdrawal symptoms and can support the transition to ongoing treatment.
  • Inpatient/residential treatment: This type of treatment offers around-the-clock care in a safe, structured setting. Patients with severe addictions receive therapy and support.
  • Partial hospitalization programs: This is often a step down from inpatient care. It provides intensive treatment during the day but patients can return home at night.
  • Intensive outpatient programs: This non-residential program is focused on therapy and support and offers patients flexibility so they can maintain daily responsibilities at home, school, or work.
  • Standard outpatient treatment: This type of treatment varies but often includes therapy sessions that provide support for individuals with less severe addictions, allowing them to maintain their daily routines.

Does Anthem BCBS of Nevada (Elevance) Cover Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

If you are living with a substance use disorder (SUD) and another mental health condition, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), you are not alone. Nearly half of the individuals with SUD also have a co-occurring mental health disorder, also known as a dual diagnosis.8

If you have a dual diagnosis, it is better to treat both conditions together rather than separately. This is because studies show that people with mental health disorders may use substances like drugs and alcohol as a form of self-medication.8

If you or a loved one have a dual diagnosis, your Anthem BCBS of Nevada (Elevance) plan should cover some, if not all, of your treatments for mental health and dual diagnosis treatments as mandated by the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA).9 Many rehab facilities in Nevada offer treatment for individuals with a dual diagnosis. These facilities use an integrated approach to properly address and treat both conditions.
