ComPsych Insurance for Detox Centers
If you or a loved one needs treatment for substance abuse, ComPsych does offer some coverage for services. For example, the company will pay for up to 80 percent of the cost of detoxification (detox) services at a hospital in your coverage network and 60 percent of the cost at an out-of-network hospital.
You will need to have the treatment approved in advance by ComPsych’s Member Assistance Program before admission. Otherwise, you will be required to pay the full amount of these costs out of pocket.
ComPsych Insurance for Drug Rehab Programs
This company will pay for some types of drug rehab, as long as you get pre-approval for your treatment. Both hospital care and outpatient drug treatment are covered at a rate of 80 percent for in-network coverage and 60 percent for out-of-network coverage.
Before you start rehab treatment, you will need to attend up to five, no-cost counselling sessions with a ComPsych counselor. This process will determine what type of addiction treatment is needed. It will also help to determine the length of treatment covered by the ComPsych insurance plan. The company will usually cover up to 180 days per calendar year for hospital services. For outpatient services, the company will set a maximum dollar amount, which means your coverage will depend on how much your provider charges for each visit.
By getting the terms of the drug rehab approved in advance, you will know exactly what services will be covered by ComPsych. It will make the claims process a much easier one.
