Founded in 1979, HealthNet prides itself on providing high-quality insurance to people regardless of their age, income, employment status, or current state of health. While many HealthNet policies provide a range of benefits to cover addiction treatment, options and programs vary depending on your individual plan.
At LA Detox, we are proud to partner with HealthNet Insurance to help individuals be able to battle against addiction. We want to make sure that their clients not only get the help that they need to overcome addiction, but that they can do so at a price they can afford. We believe that when it comes to addiction treatment, the focus should be on the treatment itself and not the money.
What Does HealthNet Insurance Cover?
Depending on the HealthNet insurance plan that you have, you may be eligible for various treatment programs that we offer at little to no cost to you. Some of these programs include:
- Outpatient treatment
- Inpatient treatment
- Partial hospital treatment
- Medication-assisted treatment
- Continuing care programs
This page is aimed at addressing any other questions or concerns you may have as it pertains to your HealthNet Insurance plan and addiction treatment.
What Does My HealthNet Insurance Plan Cover?
Addiction does not discriminate. It doesn’t care how much money you make, where you live, or what color your skin is. Because each person’s addiction is unique to them, the treatment that they need is also unique to them and their addiction. Sure, there are many people out there suffering from the same type of addiction, but everyone reacts differently to different types of treatment.
HealthNet understands that, which is why they cover a wide variety of addictions and subsequent treatment plans for those addictions. HealthNet offers several excellent services. These include behavioral health therapy, substance abuse treatment, and a variety of employee assistance options. HealthNet and its subsidiaries help make these options possible and available at a moment’s notice.
Because HealthNet makes it a priority to help its clients get the help that they need when it comes to substance abuse and addiction, your treatment might be covered at little to no cost to you. If you are unsure about what is and isn’t covered with your HealthNet plan you can reach out to your provider, or you can even reach out to us.
At LA Detox, we know that your top priority and focus should be getting the help you need and not how much it will cost. That’s why we make a point to work with both you and your insurance company to get the treatment you need at a cost that you can afford.
Will My HealthNet Plan Pay For Detox?
Detox is the first step in the long, and sometimes difficult, the road to recovery. Detox is the process in which your body rids itself of the harmful substances that lead to your drug and alcohol addiction. Detox can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks to complete based on a variety of factors such as length of addiction and how your body reacts to the detox process.
The entire detox process must be done under 24-hour medical supervision and care. Because of this, it is highly recommended that detox be done at either a medical facility that provides detox services, a dedicated detox facility, or a treatment facility that does detox like LA Detox. Attempting to self-detox can be incredibly dangerous and even potentially life-threatening.
Luckily for you, you don’t have to make the potentially dangerous decision of going to a facility or attempting to detox at home. With your HealthNet insurance policy, detox can be done at little to no cost to you out-of-pocket. Depending on your policy, your detox treatment might even be covered in full.
If you have any questions about your HealthNet policy as it pertains to detox, or aren’t sure how much it will cover, no need to worry. You can either reach out to your insurance representative or just give us a call at LA Detox. We will take a look at your policy and see what is and isn’t covered. Additionally, we will let you know if there will be any out-of-pocket expenses on your end before you enter treatment so there are no surprises.
What Other Treatment Programs Does HealthNet Insurance Cover?
Once you have completed detox, the next step is to begin substance abuse treatment. While there are many different types of treatment to choose from, the most common, and popular, treatment options are inpatient and outpatient treatment.
Inpatient treatment involves the patient living at the treatment facility for the duration of their treatment. Also known as residential treatment, inpatient treatment is the preferred treatment option by professionals because it allows the patient to go through treatment while under around the clock care and supervision.
It also allows the patient easy access to a variety of different therapies including individual and group sessions. By living at the facility, it eliminates the risk of relapse occurring during treatment since there are no outside distractions or temptations.
Inpatient treatment might be preferred by treatment professionals, but it is just simply not possible for everyone. Some people react better to other forms of treatment, while others simply can’t live at the facility for an extended period of time while they undergo treatment.
They might have commitments that they can’t abandon such as school or work or they might be the primary caregiver for their children and don’t have anyone else to watch them. No matter the reason, for those who can’t, or don’t want to, go to inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment is a great option.
The ability to come and go is one of the major benefits of outpatient treatment for those that choose that option. They go to the facility during the day to go to their therapy sessions as well as other parts of treatment and then go home. Because there is no housing involved with outpatient treatment, the cost also tends to be significantly less than inpatient.
No matter which treatment option you prefer, with your HealthNet plan you are likely to be covered. Most HealthNet plans cover both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Because of this, at LA Detox we can provide you with the treatment option that works best for you and your schedule.
If you aren’t sure which treatment option is best for you, or if you want to make sure you can afford treatment, contact us today. We will take a look at your HealthNet policy and let you know if there will be any out of pocket expenses and how much they will be.
Does HealthNet Cover Alternative Forms of Treatment?
Not everyone’s addiction and subsequent treatment are black and white. Some people might suffer from both a substance abuse issue and a mental health condition. When someone is suffering from both a mental health issue and a substance abuse issue, it’s called a co-occurring disorder.
HealthNet knows and understands that many people entering treatment are doing so for more than just a substance abuse issue. That’s why they provide coverage for a variety of other types of issues that someone might need to address when undergoing treatment, including co-occurring disorders.
At LA Detox we are proud to offer a variety of alternative treatment options, many of which are covered by your HealthNet policy. Some of these alternative treatment options include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT)
- Psychodrama therapy
- Trauma therapy
If you aren’t sure what your policy covers, or want to learn more about our alternative therapy options, you can reach out to us. We will answer any questions you may have and let you know what, if any, out-of-pocket expenses you might incur.
Is HealthNet Considered In-Network?
LA Detox is proud to partner with HealthNet as an in-network facility. As a result, we accept all types of HealthNet insurance plans. If you have a HealthNet insurance plan and need treatment, you can come to LA Detox with the confidence of knowing that not only is your insurance accepted but that if there are any out-of-pocket expenses, that they will be lower than at an out of network facility.
