What Kind of Substance Abuse Treatment Services Does PerformCare by AmeriHealth Offer?
Depending upon the scope of their coverage, patients covered by AmeriHealth Caritas may receive treatment for a full range of services through the entire treatment and recovery cycle, including the immediate medical issues associated with prolonged and untreated drug use and the long-term obstacles that can inhibit recovery and lead to relapse.
Some of the primary issues covered by AmeriHealth Caritas include:
Through Medicaid and Medicare resources, AmeriHealth Caritas is able to help patients with limited means access insurance. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that more than nineteen million Americans are currently struggling with SUD and only a fraction (a little over ten percent) are receiving the care they need. This is often due to financial roadblocks that price lower-income SUD sufferers out of the care process.
Opioid Use Disorder Treatment by AmeriHealth Caritas
AmeriHealth Caritas offers a full suite of treatment services for opioid use disorder. They have developed and utilized a system of what they call “whole-person care,” which addresses all elements of opioid use disorder, from behavioral health issues to pharmacological interventions and more. Whole-person care looks beyond the physical health needs of AmeriHealth members to also address the behavioral and social dynamics that are part of their well-being. It includes coverage for MAT, rehab, and more. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that approximately 47,600 Americans died from opioid use disorder in 2017; greater buy-in from insurance companies can drastically decrease fatality.
