Addiction Treatment Coverage
Humana Covers Detox?

Humana Health Insurance LogoAre you wondering if Humana covers detox and addiction treatment services?

Humana Health Insurance, based out of Louisville, Kentucky, as of 2020 was reported to have over 20 million members and roughly 46,000 employees, making it one of the largest national healthcare providers in the country. The company is known for holding itself to a high set of standards, working to make adequate healthcare more widely accessible while improving the quality of healthcare delivered to the communities it works with. There are numerous plans available through Humana, the most popular being Medicare and Medicaid plans. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services described the differences between Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare is an insurance program that predominantly serves men and women over the age of 65. However, Medicare can also serve dialysis patients and younger disabled men and women, depending on their healthcare needs. This federal program requires low monthly premiums for non-hospital coverage, and patients pay part of costs through deductibles for hospital visits (and some other medical costs). Medicaid, on the other hand, is an assistance program that was developed to serve low-income men, women and families of any age. In most instances, patients are not required to pay any part of the cost for covered medical expenses, though a small copay might be requested under some circumstances. This federal-state program varies on a state-to-state basis, and it is run by local or state governments (within federal guidelines).

Humana is dedicated to providing comprehensive healthcare, including coverage for essential behavioral health services like substance abuse treatment. At CuraSouth we work closely with major providers like Humana in order to make our detox services as accessible as possible to those in need. If you or your loved one is currently insured, it is likely Humana covers detox and addiction treatment services.

It Is Likely Humana Health Insurance Covers Detox

Humana Health Insurance places a strong emphasis on the importance of effective substance abuse treatment. According to the Humana website, “Any step toward seeking help and treatment can be a step toward getting better. Humana plans with behavioral health benefits may include coverage for substance use disorders treatment. Treatment can focus on intensive and early intervention, personalized care that focuses on the whole person—mind and body alike and an effort to remove the stigma associated with having a substance use disorder. Treatment options can include medication assisted treatment, counseling, peer groups, 12-step fellowships and inpatient treatment.” According to the Surgeon General only one out of every 10 people who suffer at the hands of a substance abuse disorder will end up seeking the professional clinical care they need. This is not because addiction treatment services are unavailable. At CuraSouth we remain dedicated to providing men and women of all ages and demographics with life-saving detox services that are both readily accessible and easily obtained. In order to achieve this goal we work closely with providers like Humana.

Medical Detox and Addiction Recovery

Medically monitored detox is a necessary first step on every long-term recovery journey. During medical detox the client undergoes a safe and pain-free withdrawal in a secure and closely monitored facility. He or she has around-the-clock access to professional medical supervision, and symptoms associated with drug or alcohol withdrawal are effectively treated as soon as they develop. It is crucial to understand that detox does not serve as a standalone treatment option, and that in order for long-term sobriety to be achieved it must be immediately followed up with the next appropriate level of clinical care (which is usually inpatient treatment). Humana Health Insurance remains dedicated to covering more than the initial stage of the recovery process, and provides full or partial coverage for the remainder of clinical treatment.

In most cases our multi-phased continuum of clinical care includes:

  • Medical detox, which typically lasts for between three days and two full weeks depending on the severity of the substance abuse disorder. 
  • A transition into an inpatient (or residential) drug and alcohol rehab. The client stays in rehab for anywhere between 28 days and three months depending on his or her personal needs. 
  • An immediate transition into a Partial Hospitalization (PHP) program, Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program, or an Outpatient (OP) program. 
  • A long-term program of continuing care.

At CuraSouth we offer more than medically monitored detox – we ensure that each of our clients is prepared for continued success in sobriety, and that he or she has a detailed aftercare plan in place.
