Does Anthem Cover Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Tennessee?

If you have Anthem and are looking for a rehab facility in Tennessee, addiction services like medical detox, inpatient rehab, and outpatient rehab may be covered by your insurance plan.1

Passed in 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) expanded access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment throughout the U.S. If you have a marketplace plan, like Anthem, your plan must provide coverage for mental health and substance misuse services under the ACA.2

Coverage varies depending on several factors such as your specific health plan, the state you live in, and the level of care you need. Everyone is different, and what works for one person might not work for another.3 Your individualized treatment plan may include a combination of addiction services, some of which could be covered by your Anthem insurance plan, while others might not. You can reach out to a rehab facility ahead of time for details about your coverage and insurance verification. American Addiction Centers admissions navigators are available 24/7 when you call to help you verify your insurance.

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

Anthem covers many types of addiction treatment. The exact level of coverage depends on different factors, including the type of treatment you need and your specific plan. Effective addiction treatment often addresses areas of your life beyond your substance misuse.3 Your Anthem insurance may provide full or partial coverage for common types of addiction treatment such as:3

  • Detox is often the first step in addiction treatment. When you stop using certain substances, you might experience withdrawal symptoms. With detox, medical professionals manage the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal to ensure your comfort and safety which can help you transition to another level of care.
  • Inpatient rehab provides access to 24/7 care, monitoring, and support. Individual and group therapy, medications, and peer support groups may be used to address the underlying causes of addiction, build coping skills, and promote long-term recovery.
  • Outpatient rehab provides similar services as inpatient rehab, but you will live at home while receiving care. Standard programs may require you to attend weekly, while an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP) may require you to attend daily.
  • Aftercare services are designed to support your recovery after you complete a formal treatment program. Aftercare has various components, such as counseling, 12-Step programs, and recovery housing.

As mentioned, the exact level of coverage depends on different factors, such as the level of care you receive and how long you remain in treatment. You will receive a comprehensive assessment to determine the right level of care for you. For example, your provider might recommend you start in a higher level of care, like inpatient rehab, and transition into a standard outpatient program after completion. In this situation, you might receive coverage for both programs or just for one. It all depends on your specific plan.

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

Yes, Anthem covers treatment for co-occurring and mental health disorders, but your level of coverage will vary. Someone with a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder (SUD) is said to have a co-occurring disorder.4 Nearly half of the 21 million people struggling with addiction also have a mental health disorder, like anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).4 Mental health professionals recommend treating both disorders in tandem to promote long-term recovery.4
