COBRA Rehab and Heroin Detox Coverage

Heroin is an extremely dangerous and addictive drug. In fact, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that nearly one in four people who use heroin will eventually form an addiction. Once addicted to this drug, you run the risk of developing serious health problems, experiencing difficulty in personal relationships and ruining your career. You can overcome this addiction with the right treatment, but you must first rid yourself of the drug through a process known as detoxification.

If you are planning to enroll in a detox program, you may wonder how much the program will cost, especially if you have recently lost your insurance. Fortunately, if you lost your insurance under certain qualifying circumstances, you may be able to reduce the cost of treatment with COBRA Heroin Detox Coverage.


The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, or COBRA, exists to provide coverage for individuals who lose their insurance. To qualify for coverage under COBRA, you must have lost your insurance because of a covered event, such as the loss of your job. If you qualify, COBRA allows you to continue receiving benefits under the policy you lost for up to 36 months.

For example, if you lose your job and the group insurance that comes with it, COBRA may allow you to retain the policy temporarily until you are able to find alternate coverage.

Estimating Your Expenses

Because COBRA coverage encompasses virtually all available policies, COBRA Heroin Detox Coverage varies. To determine how much you will pay for heroin detox, you must consider the characteristics of your specific policy. Factors to consider include:

  • Your deductible - COBRA Heroin Detox Coverage won't begin until you have met your policy's deductible for the year.
  • Coinsurance requirements - Most insurance policies impose coinsurance requirements after the deductible has been met. This means that you will pay a percentage of expenses incurred after you satisfy the deductible.
  • Preferred Provider Networks - Many policies have preferred provider networks. Choosing providers from within this network will ensure that you receive the maximum possible COBRA Heroin Detox Coverage.
  • Referral requirements - Some policies may require you to obtain a referral from your primary care provider before beginning treatment.
  • Precertification requirements - Certain services, such as inpatient detoxification, may require precertification from your insurance company.

To learn more about what you will pay for heroin detox, consult your policy documents.
