Does Anthem Cover Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Mississippi?

Yes, if you are looking for a Mississippi rehab that takes Anthem, your insurance plan may provide full or partial coverage for addiction services like medical detox, inpatient rehab, and outpatient rehab.1

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed in 2010 and provides greater access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. Under the ACA, all marketplace plans must provide coverage for mental health and substance misuse services. This means individuals with a marketplace plan, like Anthem, can seek treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.2

Keep in mind that coverage varies depending on your specific health plan, the state you live in, and the level of care you need. You can reach out to an Anthem rehab in Mississippi and speak to an admissions navigator for details about your coverage and insurance verification.

What Types of Addiction Treatment Are Covered by Anthem in Mississippi?

Anthem covers several types of addiction treatment in Mississippi covered by Anthem, but the exact coverage varies based on factors such as your specific plan and the level of care you need. Anthem insurance may provide full or partial coverage for the following types of addiction treatment:3

  • Detox is a process in addiction treatment where patients withdraw from drugs or alcohol while under the care and supervision of professionals. Professionals manage the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal to ensure a patient’s comfort and safety.
  • Inpatient rehab provides patients with around-the-clock, structured care while living at a treatment facility. Patients receive intensive counseling and therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction, build coping skills, and promote long-term recovery.
  • Outpatient rehab provides similar treatment services as inpatient rehab, but patients live at home or in a type of recovery housing while receiving care. Outpatient rehab varies in duration and intensity. Standard programs may require weekly attendance, while an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP) may require daily attendance.
  • Aftercare supports patients in maintaining their recovery after they complete a formal treatment program. Aftercare has various components such as counseling, 12-Step programs, and residing in a sober living home.

Recovery looks different for everyone, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach that will work for each patient. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) notes the importance of individualized treatment plans, which is why multiple therapeutic interventions are available to treat drug and alcohol addiction.

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

Yes, Anthem offers coverage for mental health and co-occurring disorder treatment, but the level of coverage may vary based on your specific plan. A co-occurring disorder occurs when someone suffers from a substance use disorder (SUD) and a mental health disorder, like anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), at the same time.4 Studies show treating both disorders at the same time can promote long-term recovery.4
