Drug abuse does more than affect society. It affects you in ways you could only imagine.

If you take advantage of a GEHA health plans drug rehab treatment center, you can make drug rehabilitation the way to turn your life around.

Asking For Help

You know that you need to get control of your drug addiction problems, before they take even more control of you. You are one of many who make this decision each year. NIDA notes that about one in eight people need treatment for a drug abuse-related health problem each year. Only a very small percentage of these people get help from a specialized treatment center, such as a facility providing inpatient drug rehabilitation. You can benefit from the help of a therapist or a rehab center, but you will need to start with a visit to your doctor.

Coverage Concerns

Government Employees Health Association, Inc., provides a variety of coverage for mental health and substance abuse concerns. GEHA has three plans available for individuals and families, including:

  • High Option
  • Standard Option
  • Health Savings Advantage

Depending on your plan, you can expect some level of coverage for your attendance to a drug treatment center. All inpatient mental health treatment, including inpatient drug rehabilitation programs, require precertification from GEHA before care can be given. Otherwise, you may have a coinsurance or percentage of the total charge that you will be expected to pay, on top of your plan’s coverage. Check your plan details for specific information about coverage maximums and out-of-pocket maximums, where applicable.

Identifying Services

Depending on your health problems and individual needs, your doctor may recommend regular visits with an outpatient therapist or inpatient intensive treatment at a GEHA health plans drug rehab treatment center. With your specific coverage plan’s summary of benefits in hand, search online for information about qualified providers and programs that can help you manage your drug addiction.
