Does Kaiser Permanente Cover Addiction Treatment?

All Kaiser Permanente health plans provide addiction treatment coverage in some way because substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health services are one of 10 essential health benefits that any plan sold in the marketplace must cover.1

Coverage may vary between Kaiser Permanente plans. In general, treatment for alcohol and drug rehab may be delivered at a variety of levels, such as outpatient, intensive outpatient, and inpatient. The plan you have will dictate the level of coverage you have, meaning how much you will be responsible for paying in out-of-pocket costs such as co-pays and deductibles.

Always check to make sure the program or provider that you are considering accepts your Kaiser Permanente plan.
