What types of Addiction Treatment are Covered by Anthem in New York?

Anthem can cover all levels of substance use treatment, and the specific coverage you have will depend on your insurance as well as the treatment plan created by your doctor. Your insurance will focus on covering medically-necessary, evidence-based care to help you reach full recovery.

Some of the common types of addiction treatment include:3

  • Detox. Detox is the first step in the recovery process, and involves letting the substances you’ve been using leave your system. You’ll be supervised by medical professionals to manage your withdrawal symptoms. After detox, you can begin treatment.
  • Inpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab allows you to live at the facility full-time so you can create new habits and focus on your recovery without distractions.
  • Outpatient rehab. During outpatient treatment, you live at home and attend treatment a few hours per week. Often, outpatient rehab starts after you graduate from an inpatient program.
  • Aftercare. Once you complete treatment, you still need support as you integrate your new habits into daily life. Aftercare provides the resources you need.

Your specific treatment plan will depend on your needs and the recommendation of your doctor, so it’s important to be honest as you seek help with substance use.

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

Anthem does cover co-occurring conditions, with the exact level of coverage depending on your specific insurance plan.

Having a mental health concern alongside substance use is known as a co-occurring disorder, and it’s important to treat both mental health and substance use at the same time to give you the best chance at long-term recovery.3
