What Does Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) Insurance Cover in Addiction Treatment?
Arizona Complete Health offers a wide range of healthcare services to members, including behavioral health services for drug and alcohol addiction treatment.4
There are many different types of addiction treatments available. The kind of treatment you receive depends on your specific needs and personal preferences. Before you choose a treatment program, you may want to consider a few factors, such as the substances you are using and how long you’ve been. If you have other mental health conditions that require treatment, you may want to choose a rehab program that also provides treatment for that condition along with substance use disorder.
The types of addiction treatment that may be covered by your Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) plan include:1
Medication-assisted detoxification. Detox is the process and experience of withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. This is usually the first step in addiction treatment before transitioning to another program, such as inpatient or outpatient rehab. Prescription medications are often used to help reduce withdrawal symptoms, so you can comfortably and safely detox from substances while under the 24/7 care of medical staff.5, section 2.8
Inpatient/residential rehab. Inpatient recovery programs (residential treatment) require you to live at the rehab facility for a set period of time (e.g., 3 months). Individual and group therapy are provided to help you overcome your addiction by learning about the root of your addiction and healthy coping mechanisms to support long-term recovery.
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP). PHP programs are similar in structure to inpatient programs, but you can live at home while in this type of treatment. You will attend treatment at a facility (e.g., rehab, clinic, hospital) 5 days a week for approximately 4-6 hours per day.
Outpatient treatment. Outpatient programs allow you to live at home while attending the program. These programs are less time-intensive and restrictive than inpatient programs, and typically require you to attend the treatment center 10-12 hours each week for a set period of time (anywhere from 3-12 months).
Intensive outpatient (IOP). More time-intensive than the standard outpatient program, IOP programs allow you to live at home and attend to family and work responsibilities while enrolled in the program. Most IOP programs require you to attend treatment 4-6 days a week for approximately 3-4 hours a day.
Does Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) Cover Mental Health & Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment?
Yes, Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) provides coverage for addiction and co-occurring disorder treatment.1 The amount of treatment costs covered by your insurance plan depends on the specific plan you have.
In the United States, there are laws that mandate insurance companies must provide coverage to individuals who need to access mental health and substance use disorder treatments:
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) lists substance use disorder as one of the ten essential benefits.6 This means that individuals with private health insurance (such as through Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) must provide at least partial coverage for members who need treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.
The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) also requires health insurance companies to provide benefits for mental health and substance use treatments in the same way coverage is provided for medical and surgical care.7
These laws ensure that you have access to addiction and mental health treatments when you need them, and your Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) plan will partially or fully cover the costs of treatment.
If you have a mental health condition along with substance use disorder, know you are not alone. Nearly half of individuals with addiction to drugs and/or alcohol also have co-occurring mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).8, 2nd para This is referred to as a “dual diagnosis”.
Many people with mental health struggles turn to drugs and alcohol as a form of “self-medicating” to help cope.8, under “mental health disorders can contribute” para Alcohol and drug use may worsen mental health conditions and can be more harmful than helpful in the long run.
Many rehab facilities provide treatments for both substance use disorder and other mental health conditions. These facilities use an integrated therapy approach to treat both conditions at the same time with the goal of preventing relapse and supporting your long-term recovery. You’ll learn about the root of addiction, healthy coping mechanisms, and ways to address mental health struggles without turning to substances.
As an Arizona Complete Health (Ambetter) member, you can rest assured that your insurance plan will at least provide partial coverage for any mental health and addiction treatments you receive.1
