Medical Mutual Opiates Rehab and Opioid Detox Coverage
Opiates are incredibly addictive. Once you are addicted, these drugs can affect both your health and your personal life. You can overcome this condition with treatment, but you must first undergo a process known as "detoxification." During detoxification, you will wait for any remaining drugs to leave your body. This may cause you to experience withdrawal symptoms, intense cravings and other complications. For this reason, many people choose medically-supervised detox.
Although medically-supervised detox may be expensive, it is necessary to give you the best chance of success during treatment. Fortunately, if you qualify for Medical Mutual Opioid Detox Coverage, you may not pay as much for detox.

Because of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, most of these policies will cover addiction treatment, including detox. However, coverage may vary based on the specifics of the plan. Some of the variables that may affect Medical Mutual Opioid Detox Coverage include:
- Plan Structure - Medical Mutual offers copay-only plans, HSA compatible plans, PPO plans and more. Each of these plan types functions differently.
- Cost-Sharing Requirements - Most plans will require you to pay a portion of the expenses you incur during treatment. Depending on your plan's provisions, you may be required to meet a deductible, pay copays and/or pay coinsurance.
- Network Requirements - Some Medical Mutual plans may require you to choose your doctors and treatment facilities from within the plan's network of preferred providers in order to qualify for the maximum amount of Medical Mutual Opioid Detox Coverage.
As you prepare to begin detox, consider these issues:
- You may need a referral. Medical Mutual may require you to obtain a referral from your primary care physician before your treatment begins.
- You may need precertification. Some treatments may require precertification, which is express permission from Medical Mutual that is granted prior to treatment.
- Your financial responsibilities may be capped. Most policies include an out-of-pocket maximum, which is the maximum amount you can pay toward covered medical expenses for the year. If you reach this limit, you won't be responsible for any further bills for the rest of the year.
Insurance policies from Medical Mutual can vary considerably. For specific information about your plan, consult your plan documents or contact Medical Mutual directly.
