Magellan Health Services Rehab and Heroin Detox Coverage

Heroin is an incredibly addictive drug. In order to overcome an addiction to heroin, you must first eliminate the drug from your system through a process known as detoxification. Unfortunately, detox can be dangerous and uncomfortable. For this reason, many people choose to undergo medically-supervised detox.

Before you enter a heroin detox program, it's wise to find out how much the program will cost. Luckily, if you have Magellan Health Services Heroin Detox Coverage, your cost may be lower than you think.

Other Considerations

Several factors may affect the amount of coverage you receive for detox from Magellan Health. Some of these factors include:

  • Deductible - Your deductible is the amount you need to pay toward your own treatment expenses for the year before your benefits will begin.
  • Coinsurance - Coinsurance is your portion of treatment expenses after the deductible has been met.
  • Choice of Provider - Your plan may include a network of preferred provider. If so, choosing a provider from this network will increase your benefits.
  • Cost of Treatment - Some treatments are naturally more expensive than others. Likewise, some providers may charge more than others for the same service.

Keep in mind that you may need a referral from your doctor or precertification from Magellan to qualify for coverage. Ask about these requirements before you begin a detox program.
