Does Anthem Cover Drug & Alcohol Rehab in California?

Is using Anthem (Elevance) for rehab in California possible? It is—the Affordable Care Act requires all long-term health insurance plans to cover 10 essential health benefits, and mental health and substance use treatment are included in those 10.1 As a result, you can have some or all of the cost of addiction treatment in California covered by Anthem.

How to Use Anthem for Rehab in California

What Types of Addiction Treatment are Covered by Anthem in California?

Substance use treatment varies depending on the person—there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. However, your Anthem health insurance can help pay for some or all of the cost of a variety of evidence-based treatment options, depending on your doctor’s recommendations.

Some of the most common types of treatment include:2

  • Detox: Detox is the process of allowing the substance(s) to leave your body and often requires medical supervision to keep you safe and manage withdrawal. After detox, you begin treatment.
  • Inpatient Treatment: During inpatient care, you live at a facility full-time and participate in a variety of treatment types. Treatment may include group therapy, family therapy, counseling, education, and more.
  • Outpatient Treatment: Outpatient care allows you to live outside the facility and attend treatment a few times a week. Many times outpatient care will follow graduation from an inpatient program.
  • Aftercare: Aftercare ensures that you have the support you need as you transition into your daily life after treatment. This might include additional education or resources as needed.

Everyone’s treatment plan is different, so be sure to work closely with your doctor to determine what’s best for your needs.

Does Anthem Cover Co-Occurring Addiction and Mental Health Disorders?

Anthem does cover co-occurring disorders in California, depending on your needs and specific health insurance plan. The Affordable Care Act includes both mental health and substance use treatment in the list of 10 essential health benefits, so your insurance will cover at least some of the cost of this important care.1

If you struggle with substance use and a mental health diagnosis, this is known as a co-occurring disorder. It’s important to get treatment that addresses both your mental health and substance use in order to give yourself the best chance at long-term recovery.3 When you contact our admissions navigators, we can help you find a treatment center that offers the care you need.
