What Is Beacon Health Insurance?

Beacon Health Options is a behavioral health provider that helps people get treatment for a variety of concerns, including substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. As of March 1, 2023, the company changed its name to Carelon Behavioral Health.1

Beacon contracts with specific health insurance providers, employers, agencies, and more.2 The company offers behavioral care, crisis solutions, well-being programs, and services specifically for military members and veterans.3

Does Beacon Health Cover Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Mississippi?

Beacon Health Options has over 115,000 providers that accept their coverage in states across the country, including Mississippi.4 While Beacon isn’t a health insurance plan that has to follow the Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates, the company is focused on providing behavioral health solutions such as mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment. That means you can rely on Beacon to cover at least some of the cost of rehab at in-network providers.

What Types of Addiction Treatments Are Covered by Beacon in Mississippi?

Beacon Health Options can cover all levels of substance use treatment in Mississippi, but your plan will focus on covering the medically necessary and evidence-based care your doctor recommends in your treatment plan. That’s why it’s important to work closely with your doctor to get the help you need.

Some of the most common types of addiction treatment that Beacon covers in Mississippi include:5

  • Detox is a process in addiction treatment designed to help patients withdraw from certain substances while in a medically supervised setting. This helps their comfort and safety and can ease the transition into a formal treatment program, such as inpatient or outpatient rehab.
  • Inpatient rehab includes living full-time at a facility so patients can receive 24-hour care, monitoring, and support. This can help them focus on their recovery without the distraction of daily life.
  • Outpatient rehab allows patients to live at home and attend treatment for a few hours a week. Outpatient care can vary greatly from standard programs that require weekly attendance to intensive outpatient programs (IOP) or partial hospitalization programs (PHP) that require daily attendance.
  • Aftercare is recommended after patients complete a formal treatment program and is designed 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?

Beacon does cover some treatments for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders in the state of Mississippi. As a behavioral health provider, Beacon Health Options helps people receive care for both substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health disorders. When a person struggles with both, it’s referred to as a co-occurring disorder. Studies suggest treating the conditions at the same time increases the chance of long-term recovery.6

The specific level of Beacon coverage for co-occurring disorders in Mississippi may vary depending on your specific insurance plan and the treatment plan your doctor creates for you. That’s why it’s so important to verify your insurance and understand your plan details. One easy way to do this is to contact our admissions navigators, who are available 24/7 and can help you find a treatment center that accepts Beacon and meets your needs.
