Does Beacon Health Cover Addiction Rehab in Florida?

If you have Beacon insurance and are looking for a rehab in Florida, addiction services like medical detox, inpatient rehab, and outpatient rehab may be covered. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed in 2010 and broadens access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. Under the ACA, all marketplace plans must provide some level of coverage for mental health care, including treatments for substance use disorders. This means if you have a marketplace plan, you can seek treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.5

Your coverage may vary depending on your specific health plan, the state you live in, and the level of care you need. You can reach out to a Beacon rehab in Florida to inquire about your coverage and verify your insurance.


What Types of Addiction Treatment Are Covered by Beacon in Florida?

Beacon insurance can help you access a range of addiction treatments in Florida. Beacon insurance may provide full or partial coverage for the following types of addiction treatment:6, 7, 8

  • Detox is a process in addiction treatment where patients withdraw from certain substances while in a medically supervised setting. This helps to ensure a patient’s comfort and safety and can ease the transition into ongoing treatment.
  • Inpatient care may be recommended for patients who need around-the-clock care and support or a more structured environment. With this type of care, patients live at the facility for the duration of treatment.
  • Outpatient care may be similar to inpatient care, but patients live at home or in recovery housing during treatment. Outpatient care can vary greatly. For example, standard programs may require weekly attendance, while an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP) may require daily attendance.
  • Aftercare is recommended after your initial treatment is completed and aims to support long-term recovery. Aftercare can include attending group meetings or living in a sober living home.

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

A co-occurring disorder occurs when an individual has a mental health disorder (e.g., anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression) and a substance use disorder (SUD) at the same time. Beacon insurance can help members access services for co-occurring disorders and mental health disorders in Florida, but the exact amount of coverage will be based on the type of health insurance plan that you have.

Health insurance plans that work with Beacon may have rules regarding where you can seek care to be able to use your insurance plan for coverage and may set limits on how many services you can receive in a plan year. Call our admissions navigators today to learn more about how Beacon and your health plan may cover treatment for co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders in Florida.
