Verifying Coverage and Finding the Best, Most Appropriate Treatment

Acceptability of insurance varies according to the individual, the plan, the treatment center, and the type of treatment. Beacon plans may cover all or some of a person’s mental health and addiction treatment, so it’s important to check your insurance plan prior to enrollment in any program.

Researching insurance options can be difficult, especially if you or someone you know is suffering from addiction. Of course, knowledgeable advisors are available with Beacon Health Options. They can verify your insurance coverage and find the best treatment for you.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment versus Outpatient

Beacon Health Options Insurance benefits packages are accepted at dozens of different drug and alcohol rehab programs across the U.S. The company provides benefit packages for many large companies doing business in Tennessee; employees working for these corporations will likely have access to effective drug treatment options.

Depending on how serious the addiction is, the patient will need to decide whether an outpatient or inpatient treatment center is right for him or her.

An outpatient facility only requires the patient to participate for a number of hours and allows them to leave when finished. Outpatient treatment is typically suited for people with less serious, short-term addictions.

Inpatient treatment like that of JourneyPure At The River features residential accommodations, where patients live for 30 or 60 days to focus on beating their addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders. It is recommended for those with serious addictions or long-term mental health issues.

About Beacon Health Options

ValueOptions brought nearly 34 million customers and several service centers in 15 states into the most recent merger.
