No matter where you are on your recovery journey, we are here to provide support. Our team at Harmony Outpatient is so proud of you for choosing to begin your substance abuse treatment journey and will work with you to ensure you have the resources you need to receive high-quality addiction treatment services. That’s why we work with a wide variety of insurance providers, such as Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, to ensure a financial burden is not preventing you from receiving the care you need.
The two main issues that most often stand in the way of a person struggling with addiction are cost and time. If you have insurance coverage through Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, you can receive treatment without having to worry about the financial burden of the treatment you need for a sober and healthy life.
What is Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance?
Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, also known as Empire HealthChoice Assurance, is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. It has been serving residents of New York state for over 80 years. The company’s history can be traced back to the Great Depression when the Associated Hospital Service of New York was founded to care for the well-being of New York residents in need.
Since then, Empire Blue Cross has grown to offer employers individual and family plans, Medicare and Medicaid plans, along with small business plans. Your insurance coverage through Empire Blue Cross is offered in four categories: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Each plan differed in how much of your healthcare costs are covered and what options you have for in-network addiction treatment.
Still unsure about what your insurance will cover? With one click on our website, you can be one step closer to developing your addiction recovery health plan.
What is included in Empire BlueCross BlueShield rehab coverage?
Thanks to the passing of the Affordable Care Act in 2014, Empire Blue Cross insurance coverage also includes the following substance abuse treatment options:
- Medical detox
- Drug and alcohol rehab
- Mental health services
The amount of health insurance coverage you receive for substance abuse rehab varies most based on the Empire Blue Cross plan you carry and the level of care you need.
Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield plans also offer a care management plan for a person struggling with addiction. Each care plan is uniquely designed to fit the lifestyle and individual needs of a person. The goal is to help Empire Blue Cross members better understand and address their struggle with substance use disorder.
Outpatient Drug Abuse Treatment with Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield
Outpatient treatment is a great option for an individual who wants to receive addiction treatment when and how they want. Through options like a partial hospitalization program and intensive outpatient treatment, you can save money and return to your own home every night.
Empire BlueCross BlueShield offers health insurance coverage for both inpatient and outpatient rehab services. However, Empire Blue Cross will only cover short-term residential treatment. We recommend you speak with one of our team members at Harmony Outpatient to determine if the outpatient level of care is the right fit for your needs.
