Insurance & Payment Information

In contemplating the cost of treatment, we have found it helpful to make sure that men and women are aware of the cost of not going to rehab. Treatment for addiction is expensive, but should be weighed against the legal, financial, and family consequences that struggling individuals often find themselves facing. These types of woes pale in comparison to the health problems that develop as a result of an addiction or a co-occurring disorder.

Using Insurance For Treatment

Insurance can often help offset (or occasionally completely cover) the cost of receiving treatment at our facility. We have insurance verifiers and billing personnel on staff to provide you with the information you need when using insurance for drug rehab.  Men and women frequently come to us to receive help in getting their health benefits verified to offset the cost of treatment.

Our Insurance Process

We are happy to help by contacting your insurance carrier and processing a request to see what level of care is covered for you or your loved one. Collecting health insurance reimbursement for treatment received by our clients is a complicated process and there is not a list of providers that are definitely covered or not covered – every case is unique. For this reason, we treat every new phone call as if the person in need of treatment might be covered and we will contact their health insurance carrier on their behalf.

In order to accomplish this, our team of experts will need to complete an initial assessment of the drug or alcohol abuse and then contact the insurance company. All information we gather during our initial consultation is held completely confidential. The type of information that will expedite our inquiry into whether or not the insurance policy will pay for treatment includes:

  • Insurance Company
  • Phone Number
  • Behavioral Benefits Provider
  • Pay Type
  • Subscriber ID
  • Group Number
  • Policy Holder
  • Relation to Person in Need of Treatment
  • Employer
  • Length of Employment
  • Subscriber’s Date of Birth
  • Person in Need of Treatment’s Date of Birth

Insurance Billing for Rehab Services Is Our Expertise

Since 1986, we have been successfully helping clients arrange payment for the treatment program that is most appropriate for them, we have developed unparalleled expertise in navigating the often confusing process of arranging reimbursement from insurance companies for long-term treatment. Sober Living by the Sea’s admissions and accounting departments have special knowledge and experience in helping our clients receive the best possible payment arrangement. In some cases, when treatment is required immediately, the client will pay in full and then we will work on getting some or all of their fees reimbursed by the insurance company.

Sometimes, the insurance company will indicate that residential drug rehab treatment is not covered (or is only partially covered). Often in these cases, there are aspects of the treatment process that are still covered by insurance. We can assist you in reviewing the relevant health insurance policy to see if coverage is available for any and all parts of the treatment program we recommend.
