Call the number on the back of your insurance card to learn more about your plan’s coverage details.

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

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), all Marketplace plans, including Ambetter of Tennessee plans, must provide some level of coverage for mental health and co-occurring disorder treatments.7 Mental health and substance abuse care are considered to be essential health benefits (EHBs).7 “You’re Covered on Essential Benefits” Specifically, all plans must cover mental and behavioral health inpatient services, substance use disorder treatment (e.g., rehab), and behavioral health treatment (e.g., counseling).9

This federal mandate ensures that insurance companies provide coverage for mental health care and treatment, allowing people to get both stand-alone drug rehab or co-occurring disorder treatment. Co-occurring disorder is the term that is used when someone experiences both a substance use disorder and mental illness simultaneously.10 Experts believe that of those with mental illness, it is twice as likely that they will experience a substance use disorder.10 Getting the help you need is essential, and this mandate helps ensure that you can get the care you need. Your insurer must cover some portion of these costs.

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

The length of time that your Ambetter of Tennessee health insurance plan will cover inpatient alcohol and drug rehab programs will vary based on the plan you have, where you live, where you seek care, and the care that you need. Every plan is different, so it’s important to check your benefits before seeking care to help avoid any surprise medical bills. Call the number on the back of your card and speak to a representative who can help you learn more about your plan.

Despite coverage details, it’s important to note that longer treatment times are typically tied to better outcomes. Most experts recommend that treatment lasts at least 90 days to maintain the most positive outcomes.11 Your recommended course of treatment may vary based on your unique situation. Remember to heed the advice of your medical provider or team of providers, as they’re the most knowledgeable about your situation.

What If My Ambetter of Tennessee Policy Does Not Cover an Inpatient Drug Rehab Program?

Depending on your specific Ambetter of Tennessee policy, it is possible that it may not fully or partially cover the cost of an inpatient drug rehab program, or the cost of treatment at all. If this is the case for you, you may be responsible for paying for the cost of rehab out-of-pocket. But, don’t worry. There may be additional payment options available to you, which may include special financing opportunities or scholarships.

Be sure to ask the rehab center you choose whether these options may be available to you. It’s important to get the treatment that you need right now, as it is critical, rather than pushing it down the road. If you push treatment down the road, your addiction could worsen, which could result in longer treatment times and more care needed.

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

The term “in-network provider” is one that can be confusing for many. An in-network provider is one (e.g., doctor or facility) that is a part of your Ambetter of Tennessee insurance plan.12, “Questions About Plans and Benefits” They’re contracted with your Ambetter health plan to provide their health services at a set cost, which is typically at a lower cost than what an out-of-network provider would charge you. 12, “Questions About Plans and Benefits”

Every plan is different, but some plans do not provide any amount of coverage for out-of-network provider visits unless it’s a true emergency, which could result in high out-of-pocket costs for you at an out-of-network provider. To check whether a provider is in your plan’s network, you can use Ambetter’s Find a Doctor tool, call the number on the back of your insurance plan, or ask the rehab facility directly to verify their network with your insurance.
