  • Does Bright Health Cover Alcohol Rehab?

    Bright HealthCare covers a range of services, including alcohol addiction treatment. Because it complies with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it must provide essential health benefits to all members.3 This includes behavioral health services such as mental health and substance use disorder treatment.3

    Each Bright Health plan will vary on how much treatment costs it will cover for alcohol addiction. It’s a good idea to check your Bright Health benefits and out-of-pocket costs before choosing a rehab facility.

    What Does Bright Health Cover?

    Bright Health insurance may help cover alcohol addiction costs for different treatment settings. These may include:

    Does Bright Health Insurance Cover Mental Health?

    As stated, Bright Health insurance must follow the mandates of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). One such mandate involves covering mental health and substance use services as standard care under essential health benefits. This means that your Bright Health insurance must offer the same access and coverage to these services as they do other medical and surgical services.3,6

    If you are concerned about a co-occurring disorder, which involves mental and substance misuse disorders, ask the rehab facility you plan to attend to if they provide co-occurring disorder treatment.

    How Much of the Rehab Cost Does Bright Health Cover?

    The exact amount of alcohol addiction rehab that Bright Health will cover will vary based on your plan and other factors. Some of these factors include:

    • The treatment plan you choose (inpatient versus outpatient, for example).
    • How long you need to be in treatment.
    • Whether the rehab facility is in-network with your Bright Health insurance.

    Because of this, it’s a good idea to check your insurance coverage before choosing a rehab center to better understand the total costs of treatment, including any possible out-of-pocket expenses. These may include:

    • Premium. Your premium is the amount you pay for your health insurance every month.9
    • Deductible. A deductible is the amount you pay for healthcare services before your insurance starts to pay. For example, with a $2,000 deductible, you must pay the first $2,000 of covered services. After that, your insurance covers the rest, except for copays or coinsurance, if your plan has them.10
    • Coinsurance. Coinsurance is usually a percentage of the costs of covered healthcare service you have to pay after you’ve paid your deductible. For example, after meeting your deductible, you might have to pay for 20% of covered services.11
    • Copayments. Copayments are a fixed amount that you pay for covered healthcare services after you’ve met your deductible. For example, $30 per office visit.12

    Bright Health Insurance Plans

    Bright Health insurance has 2 primary types of plans. These are:7,8

    • Individual and family.
    • Medicare Advantage.

    Within the Individual and Family plan, there are 4 tiers from which members may choose. These are:7

    • Gold tier. This tier works well for people who will need to use insurance on an ongoing basis. The costs are mostly co-pays, allowing members to plan their costs better.
    • Silver tier. This tier is less costly with lower deductibles than the Gold plan but has more benefits than Bronze.
    • Bronze tier. This tier has lower monthly premiums but higher deductibles.
    • Catastrophic tier. This tier covers 3 primary care visits per year and no other benefits until you reach your maximum out-of-pocket costs.

    How to Check My Bright Health Insurance Benefits

    You can check your Bright Health insurance benefits in a few different ways, such as:

    • Online: Visit the Bright Health Member Hub and log in to your account.
    • Call Bright Health customer service: This number should be listed on the back of your insurance card.
    • Call the rehab facility: Most rehab centers can quickly and easily verify your insurance benefits.

    How to Use Bright Health for Alcohol Treatment

    You can get started by discussing your concerns and alcohol misuse with your primary care doctor. They may be able to refer you to a rehab facility nearby. They can also help you with any pre-authorization or referrals, if your plan requires them.

    Next, you may want to calculate the out-of-pocket costs you will have by looking at your insurance policy specifics or calling the rehab treatment center for more information. Make sure to find a rehab facility that is in-network with your insurance. The rehab treatment center can help you understand your total costs.

    Now you’re ready to start the admissions process and begin your recovery journey.
