Does Anthem Cover Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Illinois?

Anthem health insurance plans may provide coverage for drug and alcohol rehab or other types of addiction treatment in Illinois. In the United States, under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), almost all health plans are required to provide coverage in some capacity for mental health and substance use disorders.4

Although this federal law requires that your plan provide coverage, each health plan is allowed to provide its own coverage details. As such, it’s important that you carefully review your summary of benefits and coverage to learn more about deductibles, network stipulations, and limitations of coverage prior to seeking care to avoid surprise medical bills whenever possible.

From there, the doctor may provide more insight into the type of treatment that would benefit you best and may be able to recommend a covered facility near you in Illinois.

You can also call rehab facilities directly and ask whether they accept your Anthem health plan.

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

Although Anthem health plans may be federally mandated to cover all levels of addiction treatment in Illinois, the exact amounts of coverage may vary based on the specific plan you have, the type of care you need, where you seek care, and how long you’re in treatment. Only a mental health provider or doctor can determine what type of treatment you may need and how long you should stay in treatment. Once you know this information, you can begin to work with your insurance to ensure coverage.

Four common types of addiction treatment that may be covered by Anthem include the following:

  • Detox: Prior to beginning treatment for addiction or substance use disorder, you may need to detox. Detoxification is the process in which you rid your body of substances, and it is often done in a medically supervised setting to properly manage any acute or potentially life-threatening symptoms of withdrawal that may occur.
  • Inpatient care. With inpatient addiction treatment or rehab, you would stay and live at the facility for the full duration of your treatment, where you’ll receive round-the-clock care and assistance.
  • Outpatient care. With outpatient addiction treatment or rehab, there is no overnight stay involved with treatment. Rather, you’ll go to your treatment session, which could be a therapy session or maybe a group counseling appointment, and then return home after.
  • Aftercare. Once treatment is completed, many still need to receive support to stay the course of sobriety and recovery. This is often accomplished via aftercare, which could include attending group meetings on your own or living in a sober living facility.
