When searching for drug and alcohol rehab, one of the first steps to take is verifying your insurance to determine how much your policy will cover for rehab expenses. If MagnaCare is your insurance provider, some or all of your drug and alcohol rehab will be covered, depending on the plan you have.

MagnaCare serves customers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. With a network of over 130,000 doctors at 225 hospitals and care centers, over 1 million MagnaCare customers are promised access to a wide selection of healthcare providers to choose from.1-3

Does MagnaCare Cover Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

The short answer is yes. Your MagnaCare insurance will cover at least part of your addiction treatment. Depending on the plan you have, your treatment may be fully or partially covered.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires all insurance companies to provide some type of coverage for drug and alcohol treatment. The ACA states that all health insurance plans must cover behavioral health treatment (e.g., psychotherapy and counseling), mental health inpatient services, and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment.4

What you are financially responsible for paying for depends on the state you live in, the particular healthcare plan you have, treatments sought, and whether you choose an in-network facility or not.

No matter what treatment facility you choose and what insurance policy you have, you will likely be responsible for paying some out-of-pocket costs, including:

  • Deductible: the amount you are required to pay out-of-pocket before your insurance coverage kicks in
  • Co-pay: a fixed amount you pay when you receive a covered service
  • Co-insurance: a fixed percentage of treatment costs you must pay before or after you reach your deductible

MagnaCare typically requires a pre-authorization form in order for coverage to kick in for your addiction treatment. This means that you will need to get a letter from your family doctor stating that treatment is medically necessary. In addition, your pre-authorization may include only a certain number of days that coverage is provided in a calendar year. Therefore, it’s important that you understand that if you stay in treatment longer, or you attend inpatient treatment more than once in a calendar year, you may be financially responsible for any time spent in treatment that goes beyond what is approved by MagnaCare.

The amount of 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.

How to Check Your Insurance Benefits?

Before choosing the right rehab treatment center for you, check your MagnaCare policy benefits to determine which costs will be covered by your insurance company and which will be out-of-pocket for you. Call the number on the back of your insurance card, or log in to your account on MagnaCare’s website to learn more about what your specific policy plan covers.

Knowing exactly what MagnaCare plans cover can give you peace of mind while you or your loved one is in rehab.
