Does Your Insurance Cover Treatment in California?

Blue Shield of California

BCBS: California Health Insurance for Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

According to 2020 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 16% of Californians were classified as binge drinkers (males having five or more drinks on one occasion, females having four or more drinks on one occasion).1 And the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that about 45% of the drug overdose deaths that occurred in California during 2018 involved opioids.2

California residents with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) health insurance, known in California as Blue Shield, can use their benefits for drug and alcohol rehab for substance misuse of alcohol, opioids, and other drugs. Your Blue Shield addiction treatment services can include inpatient/outpatient care, medical detox, medications, and counseling sessions.3

Does BCBS Cover Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers in CA?

Completion of a drug and alcohol rehab program can be a crucial part of long-term recovery success. Since mental health, behavioral health, and substance abuse services are considered an essential benefit under the Affordable Care Act, your Blue Shield health insurance plan should cover drug and alcohol rehab in California.4

Most Blue Shield California plans include inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment services; however, a preauthorization is required in many cases.5 It is recommended that policy holders verify their benefits since each plan can vary. You can do this by contacting Blue Shield or speaking with one of our admissions navigators at

Anthem Blue Cross

Anthem of California: Health Insurance for Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

There are more than 39 million people living in California.1 Along with the number of people in the state is the need for drug rehab and addiction treatment.2 Whether you need inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, or other forms of 60-day, 90-day, and 6-month long-term rehab programs, there are in-network Anthem options for addiction treatment in California.

In 2019, 146,499 Californians sought detoxification or another rehab treatment for substance abuse.2 Methamphetamines, opiates, and alcohol were the top 3 substances abused.2 Methamphetamine was the top drug that caused California residents to seek treatment.2 There were 47,413 people (32%) who sought treatment at a substance abuse facility due to this substance, while 33,342 (22.7%) went into a rehab facility for alcohol misuse.2

Opiate abuse led 42,921 people (29%) to check themselves into a substance abuse treatment facility, and 15,128 sought treatment for marijuana use.2

Cocaine abuse represented the lowest number of individuals seeking treatment, with 4,322 people (3%) going into a treatment center for help.2

Addiction Treatment & Rehab Centers in California

Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in California

Total Rehab centers in California

Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in California

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Rehab Centers

Inpatient treatment involves living onsite at a rehab facility and can last anywhere from 30 days to 60 or 90 days. Your stay in rehab will vary depending on factors like disease severity, your mental and physical health, and prior treatment. Services such as detox, treatment, medications, and 24/7 monitoring may be provided, if necessary.

Outpatient care can vary in its level of intensity and may transition from high to low levels based on the patient’s treatment plan. Outpatient treatment can take place in various settings including partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, standard outpatient, or outpatient visits with a counselor, therapist, or clinician.

Detox Centers

Detox Centers in California

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Recovery and Aftercare in California:

Recovery and aftercare are important steps in the lifelong process that begins once addiction treatment is complete. The ongoing support that aftercare provides can help prevent relapse and increase chances of long-term recovery success. Aftercare can include mutual support groups, individual/group/family therapy, and sober living homes.

Information about rehab in California

CA Substance Abuse Facts

Californians tend to use certain illicit drugs at higher rates than the nation as a whole. For example:

  • Californians age 12 and older had higher rates of past-year marijuana use and past-year cocaine use than the national average in 2014-2015 (15.25% vs. 13.35% and 2.16% vs. 1.75%, respectively).1
  • Past-month illicit drug use among teens has consistently been above national averages since 2010, and it increased between 2012 and 2014.1,2,3,4
  • The rate of past-year alcohol use disorders among those 12 and older in California was also slightly higher than the nation as a whole in 2014-2015 (6.6% vs. 6.1%).3

Despite the prevalence of substance abuse in California, on average, only 7.2% of those aged 12 and older who needed treatment for alcohol dependence or abuse received it during 2010-2014, whether in a treatment center or other type of recovery program. During the same period, on average, only 11.7% of those aged 12 and older with illicit drug dependence or abuse received the treatment they needed.4

The state has seen its share of drug overdose deaths, like the rest of the country. About 4,500 Californians died from drug overdoses in 2014, a 50% increase from 2002.5  From 2013-2015, Orange County averaged about 5,500 hospitalizations and 700 deaths from substance abuse-related causes.6 The leading cause of death was accidental overdoses from prescription opioids such as oxycodone and hydrocodone.

In Los Angeles County, nearly 400 deaths involved prescription opioids each year from 2006-2013, and prescription opioids were involved in about 60% of all drug-related deaths during that time period.7

Getting Addiction Treatment Help in CA

Many residents and nonresidents seek substance addiction treatment centers or other programs in California. The state is well-known for the number of rehab centers it offers. No matter what kind of treatment program you’re looking for—be it inpatient/residential or outpatient—you have a good chance of finding the right treatment center here.

If you are thinking of traveling to a treatment center, find out whether your insurance will cover treatment out of state. If you’re already in California, see if there’s a local program that will meet your needs or whether getting help at an addiction treatment center in another part of the state is a better option.

How Can I Pay for Treatment Centers in CA?

Many people use insurance to pay for drug and alcohol abuse treatment centers. However, if you don’t have insurance that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t get help.

Other ways to pay for treatment include taking out a loan, borrowing from savings, and seeing whether you qualify for public insurance programs such as Medi-Cal and Medicare. In many cases, you may even be able to work out a payment plan with the center.
