Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) is currently one of the largest and most widely used health insurance providers in the United States. The BCBS Association is a federation of 36 separate health insurance companies that collectively provide coverage to 106 million people across the country. It is estimated that as many as one out of every three Americans is insured through BCBS, and according to their website, the company has been pioneering the healthcare industry since 1929 by constantly evolving, enabling new discoveries and rising to change-related challenges. They work closely with a range of reputable healthcare providers in a number of small and large communities, and remain dedicated to providing quality, affordable healthcare to men, women and families in all demographics.

In recent years, Blue Cross Blue Shield has placed a major emphasis on the importance of accessible substance abuse treatment. In fact, BCBS has dedicated an entire resource page to helping men and women across the country gain access to quality and effective options for addiction recovery. According to the resource page, “The Substance Use Resource Center is a publicly-available, national resource designed to support people seeking substance use treatment and recovery services. This resource is open to everyone, regardless of their insurance status. The Substance Use Resource Center connects individuals as well as friends and family of individuals in need with appropriate resources close to home from a source they can trust.” At CuraSouth we work with Blue Cross Blue Shield in order to make our medically monitored detox program as accessible as possible to those in need.

Does Blue Cross Blue Shield Cover Detox Substance Abuse Treatment?

Appropriate treatment options vary depending on the severity of the substance abuse disorder and the presence of any underlying mental health conditions.

Blue Cross Blue Shield offers coverage for a wide range of addiction treatment options, including:

  • Medical detox (or withdrawal management) – Medical detox is geared towards providing clients with a safe and pain-free withdrawal, and incorporates three major components – evaluation, stabilization and preparing the client for entry into the next appropriate level of clinical treatment (usually inpatient rehab).
  • Interim care – If an individual is unable to be immediately admitted to a medical detox center or treatment facility, he or she might opt to receive emergency counseling and medication from an interim care program.
  • Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient treatment – IOP and OP provide a high level of therapeutic care while allowing clients to return home every evening. In most cases, these two levels of care are completed once an individual has been physically stabilized in medical detox and has been discharged from a long-term inpatient program.
  • Inpatient and residential addiction treatment – The individual lives in a treatment facility for an extended period of time, allowing for 24/7 access to support and clinical care. A typical stay in inpatient treatment lasts for between one and three months.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) – Food and Drug Administration-approved medications are utilized in conjunction with intensive behavioral therapy. MAT is common in medical detox and in inpatient treatment.
  • Telemedicine options – In some instances, being admitted into a long-term program of clinical care is not an immediately accessible option. Telemedicine provides men and women who are struggling with substance abuse with the opportunity to receive treatment and counseling virtually or over the phone.

At CuraSouth we offer a range of detox and addiction treatment services, most which are covered either partially or in full by Blue Cross Blue Shield. Contact us today for a free, no obligation health insurance benefit check.

Addiction Detox and Recovery
Our Multi-Phased Approach to Healing

While medically monitored detox is an essential phase of every long-term treatment program, it is important to understand detox is not a stand-alone solution for substance abuse or dependence. Addiction treatment throughout the United States is delivered in a variety of different settings and using a range of approaches, from pharmacological intervention and intensive behavioral therapy to holistically-based methodologies. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there are currently an estimated “14,500 specialized drug treatment facilities provide counseling, behavioral therapy, medication, case management, and other types of services to persons with substance use disorders.” NIDA also outlines the accepted Principles of Effective Addiction Treatment, which include:

  • Addiction is a complex and treatable disease that affects brain function and behavioral patterns – neurological changes persist long after treatment has concluded, which is why aftercare is so essential.
  • Addiction treatment varies on a person-to-person basis – no single treatment method or level of clinical care is appropriate for everyone.
  • Because of the uncertainty that surrounds seeking treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction, it is crucial that treatment is readily available.
  • In order for treatment to be truly effective it must address the physical, mental and emotional implications of active addiction simultaneously.
  • It is crucial that the individual remains in treatment for an extended period of time.
  • Behavioral therapy (group, individual and family therapy) are fundamental components of every effective treatment program.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) should be readily accessible.
  • Treatment plans must be continuously modified over the course of treatment.
  • Dual diagnosis treatment options must be available to men and women who are struggling with substance abuse and underlying mental health issues.
  • Medical detox is only the first step on the road to recovery, and it never serves as an effective stand-alone treatment option.
  • In order for treatment to be effective it does not necessarily need to be voluntary.
  • It is important that substance use is monitored closely over the duration of the treatment process, and if a lapse occurs it must be appropriately addressed.
  • Risk-prevention courses and screenings for infectious diseases should be provided.

At CuraSouth we closely follow all of the above-listed guidelines, providing our clients with a comprehensive and highly individualized approach to medical detox. We combine a range of evidence-based approaches while thoroughly preparing our clients to take the next step on their long-term journeys of recovery.
