It is Likely Independence BCBS Covers Detox

Independence BCBS is doing much more than improving access to vital behavioral health services. For the past several decades the health insurance provider has been on the frontlines of the nationwide opioid epidemic, promoting education and prevention while making necessary changes in the healthcare field. According to the Independence BCBS website, “Independence is committed to turning the tide on opioid addiction and overdose. [They] are keenly focused on the prevention and treatment of this crisis. [They] have become a nationally recognized leader in this fight by examining the causes and implementing viable and sustainable solutions, including restricting most initial low-dose opioid prescriptions to no more than five days, removing member cost-sharing for injectable and nasal spray formulations of naloxone and Narcan, not limiting visits to detox facilities and offering members access to a full range of in-patient and out-patient treatment, including residential facilities, lifting prior authorization requirements for Vivitrol and Suboxone, covering methadone and being actively involved in public policy discourse and advocating for immediate legislative changes to improve care coordination and patient treatment.”

Medical Detox and Addiction Recovery

Medical detox is an essential first step on every long-term journey of healing – but it is crucial to understand that it is only the first step. Medical detox never serves as a standalone addiction treatment option, no matter mild the substance abuse disorder might seem. In order to be effective detox must be followed up immediately with the next appropriate level of clinical care, which is often inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. What can one expect from detox? Detox centers like CuraSouth are dedicated to providing clients with a safe and pain-free withdrawal as they work towards physical stabilization. Symptoms associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal are effectively treated as soon as they develop, and client comfort is always prioritized. However, at CuraSouth we believe that the first stage of treatment should be about more than detoxing in a secure and closely monitored environment. We ensure that our clients are prepared for continued success in sobriety by providing them with a range of integrated services and  programs.

Major health insurance providers like Independence BCBS cover more than the initial stage of substance abuse treatment. They cover the entire process from start to finish, which most commonly includes the following:

  • A short-term stay in an inpatient detox center, where the client undergoes drug or alcohol withdrawal. The stay in detox typically ranges from three days to two full weeks, depending on the severity of the substance abuse disorder and the presence of any underlying physical or psychological issues. 
  • A transition into the next appropriate level of care, which is usually inpatient or residential addiction treatment. Inpatient treatment generally lasts for between 28 days and three months depending on the unique needs of each individual client. 
  • A continuation of clinical care in a Partial Hospitalization (PHP) program, and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program or an Outpatient (OP) program. 
  • A long-term plan for continuing care, which includes daily 12-step program involvement, a continuation of individual therapy and family therapy, and psychiatric services whenever a dual diagnosis disorder exists.

CuraSouth Programs Covered by Independence BCBS

  • Medical and clinical assessments – Upon admission to our program each client undergoes an in-depth clinical and medical assessment, which consists of a series of questions like, “How long have you been using your substance of choice?” “Have you ever been diagnosed with an underlying mental health disorder?” “Are you currently taking any prescribed medications?” The assessment helps our clinical team determine which course of action is the most appropriate for each unique case.
  • Medically monitored detox – Our detox program combines therapeutic intervention with several evidence-based detox methods, including tapering, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and proven holistically-based modalities.
  • Case management services – Each client is paired with an experienced case manager, who walks them through the early recovery process, helps them identify treatment goals and develop a plan for continuing care and communicates directly with family members.
  • Addiction services – We offer a range of addiction services including 12-step education and involvement, relapse prevention training, life skills training and intensive therapeutic intervention.
  • Individual therapy – One-on-one therapy sessions take place at least once a week and are facilitated by one of our licensed on-staff therapists.
  • Group therapy – Group sessions take place on a daily basis and focus on a range of pertinent, recovery-related topics.

Addiction is a complex, baffling and devastating disease – one that completely destroys the life of the afflicted and of his or her loved ones in a short matter of months. At CuraSouth we understand how deep the pain caused by substance abuse and addiction can run, because many of our staff members have been in your shoes at one point in time. The good news is that with a solid treatment plan in place, long-term recovery is always possible. As soon as you or your loved one makes the decision to pick up the phone and contact us, we begin developing a viable plan of action geared towards getting you or your loved one admitted to our program as quickly as possible. We begin by conducting a brief press-assessment, which helps our medical team determine which detox methods are going to be the most effective for each unique case. Next we help determine which coverage option is the best choice for you. If you or your loved one is currently insured through Independence BCBS, there is a good chance that some or all of our detox services and addiction programs are covered either partially or completely. Once the pre-assessment is complete and coverage has been smoothed out we set a date and a time for intake and arrange reliable transportation to our facility.
