Does Insurance Cover Rehab in Chicago, IL?

When it comes to being able to afford alcohol rehab in Chicago, there is a wide range of options available. According to the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) of 2008, health insurers and group health plans must cover mental health and substance use treatment.

Private Insurance

If you have private insurance, your insurance will likely cover payment for alcohol and/or substance use treatment, though the extent of coverage may vary between providers and plans. Some insurance plans may cover the full cost of inpatient or outpatient rehab while others may provide partial coverage.

Some popular insurance providers include Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which may cover part or all of the cost of an opioid, alcohol, or benzodiazepines detoxification program if deemed medically necessary.

United Healthcare offers a free substance abuse hotline that is confidential and available to members and their families.

Aetna offers an alcohol and substance abuse screening program that leads to referrals to alcohol and substance abuse programs as needed.

Medicaid

If you don’t have private insurance through an employer or a family member, you may qualify for Medicaid. Medicaid is a state and federally-funded program that pays for medical services for eligible adults that have a low income, pregnant individuals, children, and people with disabilities. Medicaid often does cover alcohol and drug rehab programs. Due to the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), Medicaid must allow for coverage of mental health disorders and substance use disorders.10

Medicare

Medicare is federal health insurance for people 65 years of age and older and some younger individuals who have disabilities.

Medicare will pay for your alcohol and/or drug rehab in both inpatient and outpatient programs. Medicare Part A pays for inpatient rehab, and co-pays are the same for any other type of inpatient hospitalization. Medicare Part B will pay for outpatient rehab services from a clinic or hospital outpatient department.10

Services that Medicare coverage includes:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Patient education about their substance use disorder and treatment options
  • Follow-ups after a hospitalization
  • Drugs that are prescribed in an outpatient setting through Medicare Part D
  • Drugs that are prescribed in an inpatient setting include methadone and more

Does My Insurance Plan Cover Addiction Treatment?

To find out if your insurance plan covers addiction treatment, call the number on the back of your insurance card to verify your insurance coverage and receive help in finding the right alcohol and/or drug rehab for you in Chicago, IL.

Remember, when using your private insurance for alcohol and/or drug rehab, you may have a deductible, co-insurance, and/or co-pays, so it is best to ask about all of this information when you call your provider.

You can also ask for a list of preferred or in-network providers from your insurance company to prevent higher or unexpected costs down the line.

How to Finance Addiction Treatment in Chicago, IL

If you find that free drug and alcohol rehabs are full or you don’t have insurance, there are alternatives available to you.

You can always seek out faith-based organizations, non-profit alcohol and drug rehabs, or government-funded rehab programs.

Apply for a Rehab Scholarship

Rehab scholarships are need-based programs that offer to pay all or part of your drug and/or alcohol rehab costs. These programs are usually offered through private facilities and can be combined with your private insurance or Medicaid to help cover the cost of your treatment.

Finding a rehab scholarship can be a challenge, so it’s best to contact the alcohol or drug rehab center that you wish to attend directly and ask what resources and scholarship funding may be available to you.

Other ways to find available rehab scholarships include contacting organizations like 10000beds.org, which offers individuals scholarships for drug and alcohol rehab based on various criteria.

Find a Sliding Scale Rehab Program

A sliding scale fee is a common method of payment for alcohol and drug rehab programs. This type of payment option involves a flexible fee schedule in which a client’s payment changes based on his or her ability to pay.

To qualify for a sliding scale payment, your income will be requested and examined against a fee scale determined by the alcohol or drug rehab center. If your income is below a certain level determined by the individual clinic, you will qualify for a lower payment depending on your income.

Choose a Program That Offers Payment Plans

When it comes to payment options, some drug and alcohol rehabs in Chicago offer payment plans. Payment plans are an easy way to get the rehab you need without having to have a lot of funding up front.

Payment plans can be negotiated directly with your provider or offered through your treatment center based on whether you are using insurance or are considered a “private pay” patient, meaning that you are paying for your treatment out of pocket.

Addiction Treatment Settings

Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehab centers, also known as residential treatment facilities, involve living at the treatment center for the duration of the program, which may last from 30 to 90 days. Inpatient rehabs have many benefits that include:

  • 24/7 care available
  • Highly-structured environment away from triggers
  • A supportive recovery community
  • Supervised detoxification
  • Access to a variety of treatment modalities and amenities

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) offer a high level of care while also letting you return home each night after you have received your treatment. Most partial hospitalization programs offer a minimum of 20 hours of intensive therapy a week. Some of the benefits of partial hospitalization rehabs include:

  • Ability to return home to your family each night
  • Helps motivate you to continue in treatment
  • Offers support if you live in an environment that increases the risk of alcohol or drug use
  • Great option for someone who needs the intensiveness of inpatient care but needs to stay home during treatment

Intensive Outpatient Programs

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) offer a minimum of nine hours of treatment a week in three, three-hour sessions. Benefits of intensive outpatient programs include:

  • Ability to go home every night
  • Longer treatment program than inpatient
  • More support than standard outpatient
  • Offers flexibility for scheduling
  • Great option for step-down care after completing inpatient rehab in Chicago
  • More affordable than inpatient

Standard Outpatient

As the least intensive treatment option, standard outpatient rehab offers fewer than nine hours of treatment per week. Benefits of outpatient treatment programs include:

  • Some outpatient programs offer weekend treatment options
  • Flexible treatment options
  • Less expensive than inpatient care

Telehealth and Online Addiction Treatment

Telehealth and online addiction treatment occur over a private communication device like your phone or computer, where you receive therapies in the comfort of your own home. This type of rehab acts similarly to an outpatient program and offers many of the same therapies that an outpatient treatment program does. Benefits of telehealth treatment programs include:

  • Therapy in the comfort of your own home as opposed to traveling to a center
  • No travel time required
  • May have higher retention rates than an in-person outpatient program
  • Ease of accessibility

Medical Detox

Medical detox is a program that helps you safely withdraw from alcohol or drugs under the care of trained professionals. It usually involves the administration of medication to help drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms and ensure your safety and comfort.

Medical or drug detox is not a substitute for addiction treatment but rather a first step in getting you on the road to recovery. Substances that usually require a medical detox include prescription opioids, heroin, alcohol, and benzodiazepines. This is because withdrawal from these drugs can be so intense and severe that medical care is warranted.
