Does Health Net Cover Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment?
Yes, most Health Net plans cover at least some of the costs of drug and alcohol rehab treatment. With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which includes substance use disorders (SUDs) as 1 of the 10 elements of essential health benefits, Health Net insurance plans are required to provide services for substance abuse treatment.2 This means that your Health Net or MHN plan will cover the same amount of rehab facility costs as they would a regular hospital visit.
Managed Health Network (MHN) is a subsidiary of Health Net that provides individual and family coverage for mental health services and addiction treatment. In addition, MHN has Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) and other member-based assistance programs to help businesses provide behavioral care for their employees.
MHN behavioral plan benefits may cover residential inpatient and outpatient assessment and treatment with counselors, psychologists, or psychiatrists; and alternative levels of care that include partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and residential treatment.3
MHN behavioral health plans can be purchased on their own or integrated with a Health Net insurance plan, and they offer a reliable range of covered services.
The amount of insurance coverage you have can vary widely based on your state of residence, whether the facility is in- or out-of-network, the length of your stay, and your insurance plan level. The cost of drug and alcohol addiction treatment will vary from person to person and will also depend on the rehab center, the type of program attended, and specific services received.
Different Types of Health Net Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment
With most Health Net health insurance plans covering at least some of the costs of treatment for alcohol addiction or drug addiction, the types of treatment can vary in intensity and frequency. Types of treatment may include:5-7
In some cases, you may need assistance when detoxing from drugs and alcohol, which can potentially be uncomfortable, painful, or even life threatening. Medical detox helps you safely withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, as you’ll receive around-the-clock medical supervision. You might also be given medications to help minimize withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient/residential live-in treatment centers provide substance abuse rehab while you live onsite at the facility. Most inpatient programs last anywhere from 15–90 days, depending on the addiction treatment program you’re in and your individual needs.
This treatment involves the use of medications along with counseling and behavioral therapies. The goal is to provide treatment that addresses the entire person in connection to their substance use disorder. MAT medications used to treat opioid addiction and/or withdrawal can include Methadone, Buprenorphine and Naltrexone.
Partial hospitalization programs give you the opportunity to live at home while attending rehab treatment during the day.
Intensive outpatient programs involve attending drug and alcohol treatment programs a few evenings a week. In an intensive outpatient program, you can live at home and even go to work during the day.
Individuals who have completed inpatient rehab treatment often attend outpatient treatment for ongoing support on their journey to sobriety. You live at home and spend 10–12 hours a week at the treatment facility for therapy and support.
When you decide to get treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction, you will need to decide what type of treatment is best for you.
