In-Network Cigna Rehab in Tampa
If you are reading this article, there’s a good chance you are covered (or looking to be covered) through Cigna. You may also be wondering whether or not substance abuse treatment is covered through your plan. Yes, it is! Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, healthcare providers must cover psychological conditions to the same degree as physical ones.
However, if you are covered through Cigna, you may not be able to walk into any drug or alcohol rehab and receive fully covered treatment. In-network (HMO) requires attending treatment centers from a specified list. Out-of-network policies enable individuals to attend just about any doctor or facility, but these out-of-network coverages are often more expensive.
In-Network Benefits Through Cigna
The most common health coverage plans through Cigna are the HMO plans (in-network plans). HMO plans are the most common type of health plans because they cost less, but you are limited with your choices of healthcare providers. Thankfully, Coalition recovery is an in-network provider with Cigna meaning if you have a Cigna HMO plan, your treatment here will be covered.
The advantages of a Cigna HMO
- Lower monthly premiums and generally lower out-of-pocket costs.
- Generally lower out-of-pocket costs for prescriptions.
- Claims won’t have to be filed as often since the medical care you receive is in-network.
- The convenience of having a primary care doctor as your advocate to coordinate and manage your care.
The disadvantages of a Cigna HMO
- HMO plans require you to stay within their network for care, unless it’s a medical emergency.
- If your current doctor isn’t part of the HMO’s network, you’ll need to choose a new primary care doctor.
Out-of-Network Benefits – In-Network Facilities Are More Affordable
If you have out-of-network benefits, of course your options are not limited to the selected doctors on the list. With a PPO (out-of-network) policy, your health coverage will still be covered no matter where you choose. However, there are still advantages to staying in-network. Individual’s with a PPO policy have separate deductibles and coinsurance rates for both in-network and out-of-network services.
Therefore, unless you are set on a particular place, doctor, or cannot find an in-network facility in your area, it is financially advised to find in-network services even with out-of-network benefits. This goes for all healthcare coverages, not just substance abuse treatment.
Cigna Policy Coverage for Substance Abuse
Your coverage and benefits will vary depending on your Cigna plan. For example, the lowest plan Cigna offers – bronze – provides low monthly premiums, however, when medical expenses do happen, individuals may face higher deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses. The higher plans – gold – will offer higher premiums, but lower deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses.
In relation to substance abuse treatment, your treatment will be at the very least partially covered. How much you will be responsible for will depend on your particular plan and the state you reside in. You can either call your health insurance provider or one of our admission specialists here at Coalition Recovery. They will be able to assess the costs of treatment by reviewing the treatment services covered by your plan. Call today (888) 707-2873.
