Anthem Drug Rehab in New Jersey

Treatment for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

If you or someone you love takes drugs or drinks heavily, you have a significant risk of developing serious substance problems. And if this risk becomes a reality, you need prompt treatment for the symptoms affecting you. In the U.S., health insurance is widely used to help cover the expense of seeking treatment. 

Insurance coverage often only applies when you seek help in your state of residence. But what happens if you or a family member needs rehab while living in another state? If you have the right insurance provider, you can still get help meeting your rehab expenses. One provider that has options for this kind of scenario is Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. There is an Anthem program specifically designed to help you pay for health care while out of state. And one of the covered forms of care is treatment for substance abuse or addiction.

Looking for Anthem alcohol rehab or Anthem drug rehab in New Jersey? You’ll find it at SOBA New Jersey, a facility that features a wide array of recovery options.

The Basics of Anthem Health Insurance

How Exactly Does Anthem Health Insurance Work?

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is a subsidiary of Elevance Health. It provides in-state health insurance for people living in the following states:

  • Colorado
  • New Hampshire
  • Connecticut
  • Ohio
  • Maine
  • Georgia
  • Kentucky
  • Virginia
  • Wisconsin
  • Nevada
  • Indiana
  • Missouri

Affiliated companies also provide insurance in California and New York. Roughly a third of all Americans get their health coverage from Anthem or one of its affiliates. What’s more, Anthem insurance is accepted by well over 1.5 million healthcare providers across the U.S.

Like any other health insurance company, Anthem offers coverage for a vast range of health-related needs. It also offers a variety of plans for individuals and families of all ages. Some people acquire their coverage independently, while others receive it as a workplace benefit.

Anthem HMOs

Many Anthem plans function as health maintenance organizations (HMOs). HMOs tend to feature low costs for monthly policy premiums. However, they typically offset this advantage by restricting your coverage to in-network providers outside of emergency situations. In addition, most HMOs only cover you for treatment obtained in your home state.

Anthem PPOs

In contrast, some Anthem plans function as preferred provider organizations (PPOs). On the downside, PPOs typically charge you more in monthly premiums. But on the upside, they give you more choices when it comes to using your desired treatment provider. It will cost you more to use an out-of-network PPO provider. Nevertheless, you will still get coverage for at least some of your expenses. Importantly, you don’t necessarily have to be in your state of residence to receive this coverage.

Using Your Coverage for New Jersey Anthem Rehab

New Jersey is not one of the 14 states in which Anthem directly operates. But you can still use your coverage to help pay for Anthem drug rehab in New Jersey, as well as alcohol rehab. How is this possible? The company maintains a nationwide PPO network that lets you access out-of-state treatment.

The name is this network is BlueCard PPO. BlueCard essentially gives anyone with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) insurance access to the entire BCBS system. This system operates under various names in every U.S. state. It also operates in Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. An overwhelming majority of the nation’s doctors and hospitals participate in it in one way or another. 

You do not have to go through a separate signup process to access BlueCard PPO. It’s available to everyone with an Anthem health insurance plan. However, you do need to take certain steps when using your PPO coverage. The list of these steps includes:

  • Making sure the form of care you need is covered by your insurance
  • Checking to see if you need preapproval for that care
  • Confirming that the doctor or facility you use is part of the BlueCard PPO network
  • Presenting your insurance I.D. card and pointing out Anthem’s PPO-in-a-suitcase symbol, which alerts your provider to your coverage

Want to know more about using your Anthem coverage? The company maintains a member services hotline you can use to gather additional information. You can also consult one of SOBA New Jersey’s in-house admissions specialists.

Covered Services for New Jersey Anthem Addiction Treatment

What types of substance treatment services are covered by Anthem health insurance plans? To some degree, the answer to this question may depend on the details of your policy. However, as a rule, Anthem is a committed provider of coverage for the treatment of substance use disorders (SUDs), i.e.:

  • Clinical addiction to medication, drugs or alcohol
  • Non-addicted substance abuse that impairs your personal or social function

All effective treatments for SUDs are tailored to individual needs. This means that any two recovery plans may feature different rehab options. But no matter your situation, Anthem/BlueCard PPO will likely provide coverage for your core treatment requirements. Top examples of these core recovery options include:

  • Substance detoxification (detox) under medical supervision
  • Psychotherapy or counseling
  • Medication
  • Combined medication and therapy, i.e., medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Additional treatment for a mental health condition that occurs alongside an SUD

The typical Anthem plan helps cover the expense of outpatient rehab programs. There’s also a good chance that your plan will help you pay at least some of the cost of inpatient or residential care.

At SOBA New Jersey, you can make ample use of your BlueCard PPO out-of-state coverage. That’s true because we offer the full range of services covered by the average Anthem insurance policy. Talk to us today to find out more about these covered services.
