One of the top reasons that prevent individuals from receiving adequate drug and alcohol treatment is costs. In today’s world, insurance can be complicated. The costs of treatment can be high, and it can discourage many from receiving life-saving help that is desperately needed. So does Health Net insurance cover drug rehab? This is a common question we frequently hear. Fortunately, Asana Recovery in Orange County has worked with countless individuals that have a Health Net policy to get the proper treatment needed to conquer their addiction.
Health Net is an insurance company that covers millions of people throughout the United States through preferred provider organizations (PPO), point of service (POS), and health maintenance organization (HMO). While different plans cover different needs, Health Net prides itself on maintaining affordable coverage to each person that needs assistance. Fortunately, with the Affordable Care Act, Health Net offers subsidies to reduce the cost of plans at great rates. For those that purchase their Health Net plan through the state exchange program, plans are required to provide mental and behavioral health services, including substance abuse treatment.
Health Net has a specific behavioral health services subsidiary calledManaged Health Network(HMN). This subsidiary manages the coverage of mental health services, addiction treatment, and Employee Assistant Programs (EAP). It also manages assistance programs to help employers receive behavioral health services for their employees. While MHN plans can be bought on their own, they can also accompany medical plans from Health Net specifically. These plans also must meet guidelines from the federal mental health parity law, meaning they cannot be more restrictive than the patient’s medical coverage. MHN offers ranges of coverage for inpatient, outpatient, and addiction treatment with licensed addiction professionals. Other options these plans cover include:
Policies can typically differ from plan to plan. While deductibles and out-of-pockets may be different, Asana Recovery is considered an in-network provider for Health Net and MHN. To determine how much coverage a Health Net plan has, the best option is to contact one of our admissions representatives who can determine how much your insurance plan covers.
Does Health Net cover mental health services? This is another common question heard before an individual admits to Asana Recovery. Fortunately, it does. As an in-network and preferred provider, Asana Recovery works with Health Net to provide a broad range of services to our clients including social workers, substance abuse counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychiatrists. Health Net understands the importance of receiving mental health services and often emphasizes the importance of it as much as medical check-ups.
There are times when dual diagnosis patients come to our facility. This means an individual is suffering from a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder simultaneously. Typically, these patients are often already on or recommended meditation to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other disorders. Health Net offers medication coverage under specific plans. However, to determine the exact coverage, it’s best to get in touch with one of our admissions coordinators to guide you through the process.
