Does Insurance Cover Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Arizona?

Yes, insurance typically covers rehab in Arizona because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Mental Health Parity and Addictions Equity Act (MHPAE). The MHPAEA is a federal law that ensures that the insurance benefit limitations for mental health and substance abuse are the same as that for medical and surgical benefits.7

The benefits of the MHPAEA were extended by the ACA by adding drug and alcohol rehab as essential benefits for individual and small group insurance.8 The MHPAEA and ACA prevent insurance providers from refusing to cover rehab in Arizona.

Individual Counseling
