What Does Ambetter of Oklahoma Insurance Cover in Addiction Treatment?

Ambetter of Oklahoma offers coverage for a wide range of healthcare services to members, including behavioral health services for drug and alcohol addiction (substance use disorder) treatments.1 There are many different ways to access treatment for substance use disorders. Inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, and detoxification services, for example, may be a good option for you. The type of treatment you access will depend on your specific needs and personal preferences.

You may want to consider certain factors before you decide which type of treatment would be best for you, such as:

  • What substances you are misusing/abusing.
  • The severity of your addiction (e.g., how much you use, how long you’ve been using).
  • Support from your family, friends, and community.
  • Your living situation.
  • Whether you have other mental health conditions that require treatment.

Your Ambetter of Oklahoma plan may cover the following addiction treatments:5

  • Medication-assisted detoxification. When you stop the use of alcohol and/or drugs, your body will go through withdrawals. Medication-assisted detoxification, also known as detox, uses prescription medications to help you comfortably withdraw from substances. You will be provided with 24/7 medical supervision to ensure your emotional and physical safety. Upon completing detox, most people enter another form of treatment, such as inpatient rehab or outpatient treatment.
  • Inpatient/residential rehab. Also known as residential treatment, inpatient rehab programs offer a place to live for a set period of time (e.g., 3 months) while you are in treatment. Inpatient rehab centers provide a safe, supportive environment where you will attend individual and group therapy to get to the root of your addiction, understand your triggers, and learn healthy coping mechanisms to support your recovery.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHP). Though PHP programs are similar in structure to inpatient rehab, you may live at home while attending this type of program. Most take place in rehab facilities, hospitals, or clinics. Most PHP programs require you to attend 5 days a week for 4-6 hours a day.
  • Outpatient treatment. Less time-intensive than inpatient programs, outpatient treatment gives you the opportunity to live at home and attend to work and family responsibilities while in treatment. The programs vary, but most require attendance for 10-12 hours each week, ranging from 3-12 months at a time.
  • Intensive outpatient (IOP). IOP programs are time-intensive; you will attend treatment 4-6 days a week for 3-4 hours each day. You can live at home while in an IOP program while still getting support and care from the program to help you stay sober and support your recovery.

Does Ambetter of Oklahoma Cover Mental Health & Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment?

Yes. Ambetter of Oklahoma should cover some, if not all, mental health and co-occurring disorder treatments as mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).6 The amount of coverage provided by your health plan will depend on the specific plan you have.

Many people with substance use disorders also have other mental health conditions, such as:7

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Anxiety.
  • Bipolar disorder.
  • Depression.
  • Personality disorder.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Schizophrenia.

If you have a dual diagnosis, you are not alone. Nearly 50% of people with substance use disorders also have a co-occurring mental health diagnosis.7, 2nd para

Though mental health conditions do not cause substance use disorders and vice versa, many people turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to numb their emotions, effectively using substances as a way to “self-medicate”.7, under “mental health disorders can contribute” para But this isn’t a good approach—misusing drugs and alcohol can end up causing more harm in the long run and may worsen mental health conditions.

In addition to the ACA, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) ensures that mental health and substance use disorder treatments are covered in the same way as medical and surgical care.8 As an Ambetter of Oklahoma member, your health plan will provide at least partial coverage for any dual diagnosis treatments you receive.

Research shows that individuals who receive dual diagnosis treatments (treating both conditions at the same time) have better outcomes.7 There are many rehab centers in Oklahoma and throughout the United States that provide treatments for individuals with a dual diagnosis. These rehab centers take an integrated approach to properly address and treat both conditions to help improve your chance for long-term recovery.

How Long Does Ambetter of Oklahoma Cover Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab Programs?

How long you stay in an inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program will depend on the severity of your addiction and the recommended time that healthcare professionals suggest you stay to improve your outcomes. How long your insurance plan provides coverage will depend on the specific plan you have.

In general, the longer a person stays in treatment, the more likely they are to stay sober in the long run. Research shows that longer stays in rehab lead to fewer instances of relapse and higher rates of long-term sobriety.9 Longer treatment times are generally considered most effective when it comes to treatment outcomes. The study showed that 3-6 months of treatment followed up with structured continuing care (e.g., outpatient treatment, aftercare) is associated with better treatment outcomes.9

To learn what your Ambetter of Oklahoma plan covers for drug and alcohol rehab centers, call the number on the back of your insurance card. You can ask about coverage as well as any out-of-pocket expenses you are responsible for paying, including your deductible, coinsurance, and copays.

Or, call our helpline at to speak with an Admissions Navigator who can help you through the process of insurance verification and coverage.

What if My Ambetter of Oklahoma Policy Does Not Cover an Inpatient Drug Rehab Program?

Treatment for substance use disorders is considered to be an essential health benefit that all health plans must provide at least partial coverage for. This means that your Ambetter of Oklahoma plan will cover some, if not all, of the costs of any inpatient drug rehab program you attend. You may have some out-of-pocket expenses, but getting into treatment is what matters most. Treatment saves lives, and it may save yours.

If you are unable to pay your out-of-pocket expenses, there are ways to help you cover the costs that you are responsible for paying, including:

  • Bank or credit union loans and/or line of credit
  • Fundraising/crowdfunding
  • Scholarships and grants—offered by some rehab facilities and state governments to individuals who can demonstrate a financial need
  • Payment plans and financing options offered by the rehab center to allow you to pay back over time

Ambetter of Oklahoma In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Inpatient Drug Rehab Centers

The Ambetter of Oklahoma network has a vast group of healthcare providers, including physicians, hospitals, healthcare professionals, and other facilities including rehab centers that Ambetter contracts to provide care. If a provider is in-network, this means that the services will be covered by your health insurance plan.

If you choose to attend a rehab center that is out-of-network with Ambetter of Oklahoma, you may have to pay more for any treatments you receive. The amount these out-of-network rehabs charge may be more for the same service as in-network providers, and may not be covered by your Ambetter of Oklahoma plan at all.

Whenever possible, choose to work with a rehab center that is in-network with Ambetter of Oklahoma. This will keep your out-of-pocket expenses lower and will ensure that insurance coverage for treatments goes smoothly.
