Addiction Treatment Provided by
First Health Insurance

Making the decision to undergo drug treatment is a major life decision. When you make the decision to get clean and sober, you understand that you must address the underlying roots of your substance abuse. The decision to go to treatment is tough but finding the right rehab that fits your specific needs can be just as difficult. In addition to finding the right balance of evidence-based programs, support, and expert care, you must consider how to pay for treatment. In reality, having insurance is the most significant consideration when looking for a drug and alcohol rehab.

Fortunately, many drug treatment programs work with insurance carriers, including First Health Insurance. Casa Serena is a First Health Santa Barbara rehab with six decades of experience. Call us today and learn more about our women’s rehab in Santa Barbara.

What is First
Health Insurance?

The First Health Network is a national PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) with more than 6,100 hospitals, 131,000 ancillary facilities, 845,000 professional providers, and over 1.5 million healthcare professional service locations. First Heath Network provides policyholders throughout the United States tremendous network access. It is estimated that 96 percent of people in the United States have access to a provider in the First Health Insurance network.

First Health Insurance provides a broad range of healthcare services to their clients, including substance abuse and mental health treatment. Additionally, they provide supplemental networks for clients who have out-of-network claims, as well as dental services and case management.

Does First Health Cover Drug
and Alcohol Rehab?

If you are a First Health Insurance policyholder, the first question you ask yourself during your treatment search is if your policy covers drug and alcohol rehab. Fortunately, First Health Insurance provides at least partial coverage for substance abuse treatment services. Provisions found in the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) require insurance providers to have coverage for substance abuse and mental health. These services are considered essential by the government and include all levels of substance abuse treatment, inpatient behavioral health, psychotherapy, and counseling.

Depending on the plan, a First Health insurance cannot deny policyholders services because of pre-existing conditions—including substance abuse and mental health issues. Additionally, First Health Insurance cannot charge you more because of the pre-existing condition. With this information in mind, you can be confident that the treatment and care you receive at a First Health insurance rehab will be of the best quality and at the best rates possible.

What Addiction Programs Does First Health Insurance Cover?

You are unique in your treatment needs and goals. When you are looking for a First Health women's rehab, that facility needs to provide a wide range of programs and services that give you the tools you need to address and overcome your addiction. Most importantly, you must be sure these services are covered to a substantial degree by your First Health insurance plan. First Health Insurance covers the following programs:

-Detox: Helps clients minimize the pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal in a safe and comfortable manner.

-Residential Treatment: Requires patients to live at the rehab facility or in nearby housing to receive intensive treatment services.

-Outpatient Treatment: Allows people to receive vital treatment services at the facility or other location while being able to remain at home and fulfill work, school, and family obligations.

-Partial Hospital Treatment (PHP): A more intensive outpatient treatment program for people who are at high risk for relapse or need immediate medical or mental health care.

-Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP): An outpatient option for those needed more intensive care compared to traditional outpatient programs but has the flexibility in allowing people to live at home.

-Continuing Care/Aftercare: Can include alumni programs, continue counseling and therapy, and transitional living.

It is important to note that residential treatment costs considerably more than outpatient programs. However, programs and services in both residential and outpatient programs are covered as long as those services are deemed medically necessary. The coverage of these programs varies from state to state and can vary depending on your plan. Contact the admissions team at Casa Serena if you want to have us verify your policy coverage for you.

In-Network Rehab Center

Understanding In-Network and Out-of-Network Coverage

There are two types of coverage seen with First Health Insurance: in-network and out-of-network. A First Health in-network rehab is contracted to provide treatment services to policyholders. As a result, people will see lower copays, coinsurance and deductibles. Those rehabs that are out-of-network providers may provide the treatment services you need, but they are subject to higher copays, coinsurance, and deductibles.

There may be out-of-network providers that won't cover some treatment services, and costs associated with those services will come out-of-pocket. For non-covered services, providers may charge a rate that is higher than most out-of-network rates. This is especially true if you are looking at a facility in another state where there may be no coverage.
