Community Health Choice Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

In many cases, people are unable to recover from an addiction to prescription drugs without professional treatment. However, before you can benefit from a treatment program, you must first stop taking the drug and allow it to leave your system completely. This process is known as "detoxification" or "detox," and it can be challenging. For this reason, it is often necessary to participate in a medically-assisted detox program.

Detox programs can be expensive. Fortunately, if you have health insurance through Community Health Choice, you may not need to pay as much for detox as you think.

About Community Health Prescription Drug Detox Coverage

Community Health Choice administers both state-sponsored and private health insurance plans. All of these policies cover prescription drug detox when it is deemed medically necessary. However, the amount of coverage provided can vary by plan.

  • Texas STAR Program (Medicaid) - The Texas STAR program will cover prescription drug detox costs at 100 percent. No copayments or coinsurance will be required if you have insurance under this program.
  • Texas CHIP Program - The Texas CHIP program will also cover prescription drug detox expenses. However, you may be required to pay a copay for some or all of the services you receive.
  • Marketplace Insurance Policies - Plans sold through the health insurance marketplace can vary considerably. Although coverage is typically available through all of these plans, you may be required to meet a deductible, pay copays and/or pay coinsurance.

Other Considerations

Other factors to consider as you estimate the cost of Community Health Prescription Drug Detox include:

  • Type of Treatment - Some types of treatment are naturally more expensive than others. For example, inpatient Community Health Prescription Drug Detox will typically cost more than outpatient detox.
  • Network Requirements - Many Community Health Choice plans include a preferred provider network. If you use a provider that is not in this network, your benefits may be reduced, or your detox may not be covered by the plan at all.
  • Referrals and Preauthorization - Some plans from Community Health Choice require you to obtain a referral from your primary care physician before you enroll in a detox program. In some cases, you may also be required to obtain prior authorization from the insurance company itself before you begin treatment.
