ConnectiCare is an insurance provider that currently serves a number of northern states. Their insurance plans can be utilized to cover the cost of an addiction treatment program.
While the type of plan will greatly influence the amount of healthcare coverage received through ConnectiCare, all policies will provide some financial assistance for addiction treatment.
Treatment services covered through ConnectiCare may include both inpatient treatment options as well as outpatient programs, depending on the needs of the client.
How To Use ConnectiCare Insurance Coverage For A Rehab Program
People with ConnectiCare insurance have a number of plans available to them in the event they need to look for drug and alcohol addiction treatment.
Insurance coverage through ConnectiCare will fall into one of three tiers including bronze plans, silver plans, or gold plans.
The lowest tier plan, bronze, will cover 60% of out-of-pocket costs, whereas the silver and gold tier levels will cover 70% and 80%, respectively.
Other important terms to know while searching for a ConnectiCare plan include:
- point-of-service (POS) plans — These types of insurance plans will afford policyholders the choice of visiting out-of-network treatment providers, but they’ll cost more.
- health maintenance organization (HMO) plans — HMO plans require that people must visit in-network doctors to have their healthcare services covered.
- health savings accounts (HSA) — HSA-compatible plans will allow people to save their own money tax-free to use for their qualifying services, including addiction treatment.
Once the appropriate level of insurance is chosen, people can then contact a ConnectiCare representative to coordinate their stay at a rehabilitation center.
