Asana Recovery Is In-Network with Anthem Blue Cross insurance

Asana Recovery is proud to be an in-network provider for Anthem Blue Cross insurance.  We now have expanded access for those holding Federal Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield policies. This means if you have Anthem Insurance, they typically pay a higher percentage of treatment costs since Asana Recovery is considered a preferred provider. With Anthem, you’re likely able to receive coverage for addiction treatment which can be covered up to 100% depending on your plan and deductible.

A Landmark Collaboration: Asana Recovery & Anthem BlueCross BlueShield

The partnership between Asana Recovery and Anthem BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) marks a significant stride toward enhancing healthcare accessibility for federal employees and policyholders across the United States, including those under Blue Shield in California. This collaboration is a pivotal moment in healthcare, promising to bridge the considerable gap in access to quality healthcare services for a broad spectrum of federal employees. 

Asana Recovery, known for its innovative and comprehensive addiction treatment services, pairs seamlessly with Anthem BCBS’s extensive health insurance coverage, ensuring that more individuals can receive the care they need without the added stress of financial burden.

Anthem BCBS’s commitment to the health of federal employees is unwavering. With a wide network that spans across the United States, Anthem BCBS offers a variety of plans that cater to the diverse needs of its policyholders. 

In California, under Blue Shield, federal employees benefit from tailored health insurance options that address their specific healthcare needs. This dedication is evident in their efforts to ensure that comprehensive and affordable health insurance is within reach for federal employees, thereby promoting better health outcomes and fostering a healthier nation.

The Asana Recovery and Anthem BCBS partnership is more than just a collaboration; it’s a significant opportunity benefiting thousands of federal employees who have long faced challenges in accessing necessary healthcare services. 

By combining Asana Recovery’s expertise in addiction treatment with Anthem BCBS’s robust health insurance offerings, this partnership not only makes healthcare more accessible but also underscores the importance of mental health and substance abuse treatment. It is a testament to the power of collaboration in breaking down barriers to healthcare access, paving the way for a healthier, more inclusive future.

Anthem In-Network Drug and Alcohol Coverage Options

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield covers inpatient and outpatient levels of care including residential treatment, partial hospitalization programming, and medically assisted detox. Outpatient treatment for addiction is also covered in many cases. 

If you’ve purchased your Anthem plan through the marketplace, you likely have treatment coverage. Since the passing of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, insurance companies have been required to provide essential mental and behavioral health services to all members. They are required to provide the same level of behavioral healthcare treatment as they do for medical services. 

As a result, Anthem offers coverage for substance abuse treatment. However, what this means and the exact level of coverage will vary depending on the provider, your specific policy, and your deductible. In this article, I explain what the partnership coverage with Asana Recovery means.

Asana Recovery’s Commitment to Anthem BCBS Policyholders

Asana Recovery, a leading provider of addiction treatment services, has taken a major step in ensuring high-quality healthcare is accessible to more Americans through its partnership with Anthem BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS). 

This collaboration is especially beneficial for Anthem BCBS policyholders, who now have unprecedented access to Asana Recovery’s comprehensive range of treatments and programs. This initiative reflects Asana Recovery’s commitment to providing exceptional care and support to individuals struggling with addiction and related mental health issues, ensuring they receive the help they need to embark on the path to recovery.

Anthem Blue Cross Plans

There are four main plans::

  • Bronze: The lowest level of coverage with the least expensive monthly premiums, and the highest deductible and out-of-pocket expenses
  • Silver: Higher monthly premium than bronze and less out-of-pocket expenses
  • Gold: Higher monthly premium than silver, but with more benefits
  • Platinum: Highest coverage available, with the highest monthly premium and the most extensive coverage from Anthem. Typically deductibles and out-of-pocket costs are minimal.

Although these are the general levels of coverage, there is variation depending on the state you live in, the services you need, and your specific plan. To get the specifics on what your policy covers, you can check your coverage with Anthem Blue Cross customer service.

Coverage for Drug Rehabilitation

As an in-network provider, Anthem Blue Cross covers Asana Reecovery’s inpatient and outpatient services for drug addiction. Anthem provides coverage for drug therapy as well as detox and other services related to treatment. However, the amount of coverage depends on your location and the specifics of your plan.

Most coverage is dependent on several factors, including the medical necessity of the treatment as determined by the referring physician to Anthem. Anthem then decides based on its guidelines. This includes weighing the medically necessary services to reduce future costs if the issue isn’t treated.

Other factors are considered, such as the legal ramifications of substance abuse, the type of substance involved, and the expected length of stay to ensure you are receiving the proper level of care for your needs. To find out what your plan covers and what drug rehabilitation would look like with Anthem Blue Cross, contact one of our experts at Asana Recovery to get the help you need. Or fill out the insurance verification form on our website to see what costs are covered.

Coverage for Alcohol Rehabilitation

Many people aren’t sure whether they can receive support for their alcohol dependency. Alcohol rehab Is also covered by Anthem Blue Cross. There are a variety of options available depending on your plan, from essential treatment to luxury treatment centers. The addiction treatment services available through Anthem Blue Cross to support you in every step of your recovery journey with Asana Recovery include:

  • Inpatient hospitalization
  • Partial hospitalization

  • Aftercare planning

For Anthem BCBS members, access to these services has been greatly simplified and integrated with their insurance coverage, ensuring that financial barriers do not impede their access to essential healthcare services.

Coverage for Mental Health Services

Anthem Blue Cross provides mental health coverage through its available services. Because of its large size, Anthem has an extensive network of mental health care providers that include counselors, therapists, and psychiatrists to find the right health professional for you. Addiction often comes with a dual diagnosis. It is typically symptomatic of another, underlying mental health disorder. Some of the common issues that co-occur with substance abuse include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • PTSD 

To treat addiction, patients often must address underlying mental health issues as well. With this coverage of mental health services, you can receive the necessary complete care to achieve sobriety through Asana Recovery. Anthem Blue Cross also provides licensed care managers and clinical experts to help members find the right help for their specific mental health needs.

Coverage of Behavioral Health Services
