In-Network Versus Out-of-Network Insurance
One of the prevailing questions that a person will ask as they endeavor to get insurance coverage for substance use disorder (SUD), or any other type of treatment for that matter, is the difference between in-network and out-of-network insurance companies. Understanding this distinction can help you keep costs down and make treatment considerably more affordable. Providers who are in-network have contracted with your health plan to provide care; this means they typically cost you less than an out-of-network “nonparticipating” provider. In-network providers are sometimes referred to as “participating” providers. You can find an in-network treatment facility by contacting your insurance provider via the number on the back of your card or on their website. Many healthcare plans partner with New Directions Behavioral Health to make treatment as convenient as possible.
What Kind of Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Services Does New Directions Cover?
New Directions Behavioral Health is mindful of the ongoing and lifetime nature of addiction recovery and offers coverage and assistance to pay for treatment in each stage of the care cycle, from screening and diagnosis to treatment to lifetime management.
Some of the primary care services that they cover for you or your loved one may include:
- Screening and diagnosis – Testing and diagnosis of SUD from a vast network of experienced and qualified physicians and mental health professionals. Diagnosis is key to identifying the scope of the issue and developing a comprehensive plan of action.
- Medical detox and withdrawal management – Detoxification, or “detox,” is a critical stage in the treatment process and helps patients rebalance their brain chemistry and stabilize their central nervous system by eliminating the toxins in their system that have built up from alcohol and drug use. Detox can either occur in an ambulatory setting like a hospital or clinic, or as part of a comprehensive inpatient treatment program. In each case, programs usually last up to a week, depending upon patients’ progress and ongoing care needs.
- Behavioral rehabilitation – Behavioral rehab is a term used to describe a broad range of psychiatric modalities designed to help patients cultivate the behavioral and psychological tools to avoid relapse and live independently in recovery. While each care provider that partners with New Directions Behavioral Health is different, behavioral rehab will typically consist of group therapy sessions, one-on-one psychiatric counseling, and different types of supplemental therapies that are custom-tailored to patients’ care needs and substance abuse history. Many rehab facilities also offer treatment for co-occurring addiction and mental illness, or what is known as “dual-diagnosis” disorders.
Rehab is generally administered through one of a few different formats, depending on patients’ care needs, lifestyle requirements, and insurance resources:
- Inpatient and Residential – Inpatient treatment provides twenty-four-hour treatment in a residential setting and represents the highest level of care in the addiction treatment landscape. While the timeline for each patient varies, inpatient and residential programs tend to last twenty-eight to thirty days on average and include step-down provisions to outpatient programs.
- Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) – Outpatient and IOP programs involve patients attending multiple weekly treatment sessions, with longer-term and more frequent treatment sessions at the IOP level. The programs provide the same scope of care as residential and inpatient but allow patients to maintain their lives during the recovery process.
- Partial Hospitalization (PHP) – PHP programs represent the highest level of outpatient treatment. PHP services may be offered five to seven days per week for six or more hours per day. Patients will live at home and visit the provider’s office or facility for care. Eventually, PHP patients may be able to step down to regular or IOP modules.
Additional rehab services often covered and facilitated by New Directions Behavioral Health can include medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder, transitional or sober housing, and ongoing psychiatric care.
