Provider Overview

If you or a loved one are in need of drug or alcohol rehab, one of the main concerns may be how to pay for treatment. Many people rely on their health insurance to pay for drug and alcohol treatment. Beacon Health Options is a managed behavioral health organization that provides comprehensive mental health and substance abuse treatment services to people across the United States.

With the recent merger with Carelon Health Insurance, Beacon Health Options has expanded its services to include healthcare coverage beyond just behavioral health.

Beacon Health Insurance Plans

Beacon Health Options

The Affordable Care Act requires insurers to provide some degree of coverage for the medically-necessary treatment of mental health disorders,1 including substance use disorders (SUDs). This means that many health insurance plans, include Beacon, may be required to help you cover some or all of the cost of addiction treatment.

Using Beacon Health Insurance to Cover Rehab

If you or a loved one is seeking detox or rehab services and you have Beacon Health Insurance/Carelon Health, there are several steps you can take to begin using your insurance to cover the costs of treatment.

First, you should contact Beacon Health Insurance/Carelon Health directly to understand your specific coverage options for detox and rehab services. They can help you understand the details of your policy, including the types of treatment that are covered and any out-of-pocket costs you may be responsible for.

Next, you can search for treatment facilities that accept Beacon Health Insurance. For example, if you are interested in attending treatment at Laguna Treatment Hospital in California, you can reach out to the facility to see if they accept your insurance. Most treatment facilities will have a verification process in place to determine your insurance coverage and the costs associated with treatment.

Additional Resources

Other Options to Pay for Addiction Treatment

Even though Beacon Health is required by law to provide some degree of coverage for SUD treatment, it’s possible the coverage won’t fully pay for the entire cost of treatment. This often leaves people with out-of-pocket costs that they may not be able to cover. The good news is there are several options available to help make up the difference:

  • Personal loans
  • Scholarships
  • Grants
  • Private pay

Free Addiction Resources for Recovery

While addiction treatment can be expensive, there are free resources available for those struggling. Support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can be an important part of the recovery process, and they don’t cost a thing. These groups offer a supportive community where people can share their experiences and receive support from others who are going through or have been through similar struggles.

In addition to support groups, treatment helplines can also be a valuable resource for people looking for information about addiction treatment. American Addiction Centers operates a confidential helpline that is staffed by knowledgeable professionals who can answer questions about drug and alcohol rehab and verify insurance benefits. This is a valuable resource for people who are getting started on their recovery journey and who may not know where to turn.
