What Is Cigna Health Insurance?

Cigna offers a variety of health insurance plans in 16 states, including Missouri.1 Cigna supports members by offering a range of benefits, including 24/7 customer service, virtual care, and more.1 They provide insurance options to individuals, families, and employers, aiming to protect and enhance people’s health and well-being through comprehensive health insurance solutions.2

Missouri Cigna Health Insurance Plans

In Missouri, Cigna offers a variety of plans through employers and in the health insurance Marketplace.3 Cigna’s health insurance plans include bronze, silver, and gold tiers, each offering varying levels of coverage and cost-sharing. Bronze plans typically have lower premiums but higher out-of-pocket costs, while gold plans have higher premiums but lower out-of-pocket expenses. Silver plans strike a balance between the two.3

Does Cigna Cover Inpatient Rehab in Missouri?

Yes, Cigna health insurance generally covers inpatient rehab for substance use disorder (SUD), although coverage can vary depending on your specific plan. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurance providers like Cigna to offer essential health benefits, including mental health and SUD services.4

Under the ACA, insurers cannot deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions like substance misuse, ensuring access to rehab services. However, the extent of coverage and associated costs may differ based on several factors (e.g., your specific plan), so it’s important to review your policy details.

During inpatient rehab, you live full-time at the facility and can focus on creating new habits without the distractions of daily life.5

Does Cigna Cover Outpatient Rehab in Missouri?

Yes, if you’re looking for outpatient drug rehab, Cigna health insurance generally covers outpatient rehab for substance use disorder (SUD) in Missouri. Outpatient treatment allows you to live at home while you attend treatment for a few hours a week.5 Some programs are more structured, such as intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP), and require multiple hours of treatment per day.5

If your doctor recommends outpatient treatment, your Cigna health insurance plan should cover at least some of the cost because the Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates it. However, you’ll want to make sure you understand your specific insurance plan.

Does Cigna Cover Mental Health Treatment in Missouri?

Many people who struggle with a substance use disorder (SUD) also have a mental health disorder (e.g., anxiety, depression), known as a co-occurring disorder. Treatment for co-occurring disorders typically involves integrated care that addresses both conditions simultaneously. It may include behavioral therapies, medication, and participation in support groups. Studies show that an integrated approach to treatment can help improve recovery outcomes.6

Will your Cigna health insurance help pay for mental health treatment as well? In short, yes, because mental health treatment is one of the 10 essential health benefits mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).4 As mentioned, it’s important to review your policy details.

Mental health treatment includes a variety of behavioral therapies, including:7

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT is a psychotherapy approach that focuses on identifying and modifying negative behaviors and thought patterns to promote positive changes and emotional and mental well-being.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that helps individuals process traumatic memories and reduce associated distress through guided eye movements or other bilateral stimulation.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that emphasizes emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness to help individuals develop healthier coping strategies.
  • Family therapy: This form of psychotherapy involves treating the entire family unit, aiming to enhance relationships, improve communication, and resolve conflicts to foster a healthier and more supportive family dynamic.

Other Options to Pay for Addiction Treatment in Missouri

Paying for treatment with insurance can help you cover the cost, but sometimes it’s not enough. If your insurance doesn’t cover the full cost of addiction treatment, or if you are paying without insurance, there are several options to explore:

  • Out-of-pocket payment: You can pay for treatment directly using credit cards, funds from friends and family, or personal savings. While this may be challenging for some, it offers the advantage of immediate access to treatment without relying on insurance approvals.
  • Payment plans or sliding scales: Many addiction treatment centers offer payment plans that allow individuals to pay for treatment over time. Some centers also offer sliding scales based on income.
  • State-funded or non-profit organizations: There are state-funded or non-profit addiction treatment centers that provide low-cost or free rehab to individuals who cannot afford private treatment.
  • Scholarships or grants: Some addiction treatment centers offer scholarships or grants to individuals who meet specific criteria, helping to offset or cover the cost of treatment.
  • Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs): If you’re employed, you can check if your workplace offers an EAP that provides resources for addiction treatment.
  • Government assistance programs: Depending on the country or region, there might be government programs that provide financial assistance or subsidies for addiction treatment.
