Does TRICARE Insurance Cover Drug Rehab?

If you are interested in receiving the top notch care that Wilmington Treatment Center has to offer and currently hold a TRICARE insurance policy, then you may be eligible to receive treatment with minimal cost to you. TRICARE insurance is accepted by Wilmington Treatment Center, though it is important to be familiar with your policy details to know the exact amount that your plan will pay for.

Additionally, it is also important to bear in mind that the insurance plans afforded to individuals in different parts of the country can vary in terms of the services covered and the amount allocated to pay for those services. For example, if you presently live in North Carolina, your TRICARE coverage may differ from a person who resides in another state. For this reason, it is especially important to know the details of your TRICARE plan when seeking drug rehab services.

In contacting Wilmington Treatment Center, our staff can assist you in understanding TRICARE insurance, and can tell you the specifics of your policy as it pertains to paying for treatment at our center. In many instances, TRICARE can cover the full cost of treatment; however, we can inform you of any specific plan perimeters or limitations that exist. We complete this necessary step so as to eliminate any concerns that may be present and so that prospective patients are fully informed of how using their TRICARE insurance can work to their advantage.

What Types of Drug Rehab Does TRICARE Insurance Cover?

TRICARE insurance plans cover a wide range of services, and representatives at TRICARE can inform you of all the services that your plan can cover. However, to eliminate excessive time spent learning every single detail of your plan, you can schedule an assessment for drug rehab services and, with the help of the admissions team, learn how TRICARE will cover the type of treatment recommended for you.

Depending on the type of addiction that a person is looking to recover from, as well as the severity of the addiction itself, the recommended level of care can differ from one person to the next. Some individuals only require outpatient forms of treatment from the start, while others need detoxification services paired with drug rehab in order to achieve sobriety. Given this fact, it is wise to seek an assessment for services to know what is best for you and then work with your care provider to learn how much of the cost of treatment is covered by your insurance.

As stated, the staff at Wilmington Treatment Center can complete an assessment for admission and verify your insurance benefits for you. They can alert you to the levels of care that TRICARE insurance will cover and inform you of the exact cost of treatment should your plan not fully pay for Wilmington’s services.

How Much of the Cost of Drug Rehab is Covered by TRICARE Insurance?

For many insurance plans, including TRICARE, a certain deductible must be met before a plan will pay for the full scope of services. For some plans, however, no deductible is required and a policy can cover a percentage of or all of a person’s healthcare needs. To know for sure, you can learn about the details of your plan and familiarize yourself with any cost or time limitations that may exist. Also, it is important to be aware that many policies also place limitations on the number of times a person can access a particular level of care within a calendar or fiscal year, which could affect when a person can receive a type of treatment if a service was utilized multiple times in a given period of time.

If you would like to know the exact cost of treatment at Wilmington Treatment Center when using your TRICARE insurance plan, feel free to reach out to our staff at your earliest convenience. They can assist you in developing a clearer picture in terms of how using TRICARE insurance can help you pay for treatment.

What Can I Do if TRICARE Insurance Doesn’t Cover All of My Drug Rehab Needs?

For many people, worrying if their insurance will cover the full cost of drug rehab services is a concern. Additionally, many of these same people worry that the out-of-pocket cost to them will be too exorbitant to pay on their own. However, at Wilmington Treatment Center, we discuss the financial aspect of our programming from the start and strive to alleviate any worry and concern that is associated with paying for treatment. We purposefully do this in the beginning so as to remain transparent about treatment costs and to hopefully eliminate any barriers to a person seeking drug rehab services.

If your TRICARE insurance plan does not fully cover the cost of our services, we can work with you to develop a financial plan that will still enable you to come to Wilmington for services.

How Can I Confirm my TRICARE Insurance Benefits?

In choosing Wilmington Treatment Center as the place to partake in drug rehab services, we will complete a thorough assessment with you, recommend a level of care that best suits your needs, and verify your Tricare benefits so that you will know if there is any out-of-pocket expense to you. Our staff is highly trained in working with insurance companies, including Tricare, and is very knowledgeable in understanding and explaining the process of paying for treatment with health insurance. We only ask that you have your insurance information with you so that you can provide us with the information we need to verify your benefits.

If you have any questions about using your insurance to pay for Wilmington Treatment Center’s services, would like more information on the treatment options available, or if you would like to begin the admissions process, give us a call today. We will do all that we can to help you access the drug rehab services that you need to live a healthier, drug-free life.

Wilmington gave me exactly what I needed, not what I wanted and for that, I will be eternally grateful.
