  • Gold plans are helpful if you have significant health needs and have a higher monthly premium with lower out-of-pocket costs.
  • Bronze plans are helpful if you have fewer medical needs and cost less per month, but you’ll pay higher out-of-pocket costs for care.
  • Silver plans are in the middle, with a balance of monthly and out-of-pocket costs.

Understanding your specific plan is essential to maximize your insurance coverage and get the care you need. Our admissions navigators can review your specific plan in just a few minutes while talking to you and help connect you to a Texas rehab that takes BCBS.

What types of drug and alcohol rehab does BCBS cover in Texas?

The specific substance use treatment you need will depend on your unique circumstances, so work closely with your doctor to find a care plan that meets your needs. There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment.

Some of the common treatment options include:4

  • Detox. During detox, you are medically supervised as the drugs work their way out of your system. Detox isn’t treatment, but it’s the first step before you can begin treatment.
  • Inpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab happens in a facility where you live full-time for several months. This allows you to create new habits for a new life without any distractions.
  • Outpatient rehab. You live at home during outpatient rehab and attend treatment for a few hours a week. Outpatient rehab often follows inpatient care.
  • Aftercare. Once treatment is over, you still need support to implement your new habits long-term in your daily life. Aftercare helps you get the support you need.

Your BCBS insurance will focus on covering the care your doctor recommends, so it’s important to be honest about your substance use, home life, and more in order to get the right care plan.
