PPO Opiates Rehab and Opioid Detox Coverage
If you are addicted to opiates, you can overcome this difficult condition with the proper treatment. However, before you can enter treatment, you must first undergo a process known as "detoxification" or "detox." Detox refers to the process of eliminating all of the opiates from your body so that you can begin treatment as a sober individual. This process can be uncomfortable and even dangerous, so many patients choose to complete detox under medical supervision.
Medically-supervised detox may be expensive. Fortunately, if you have PPO Opioid Detox Coverage from your health insurance company, you may not pay as much for detox.

About PPO Policies
A preferred provider organization, or PPO, policy is a specific type of insurance policy available from many different insurers across the United States. PPO policies possess several notable characteristics that distinguish them from other types of insurance policies. Some of these characteristics include:
- Preferred Provider Network - PPO policies include a network of preferred providers. You are encouraged to use providers from this network any time you seek medical care.
- Choice of Providers - Under a PPO network, you can choose the providers you want to use for certain services without input from the insurance company.
- No Referrals - PPO policies typically allow you to visit specialists without obtaining a referral from your primary doctor.
- Coverage Differences - A PPO plan will cover the care you receive from both in-network and out-of-network providers. However, care received in-network will be eligible for a higher level of coverage than care received outside of the network.
Estimating Your PPO Opioid Detox Coverage
When you enter opioid detox with PPO coverage, you won't need a referral from your primary doctor, and you can typically utilize the treatment facility of your choice. However, if the doctors and facilities you choose for detox are out-of-network, you will pay more for your care than you would if you had chosen in-network doctors and facilities. Some other factors that may affect your PPO Opioid Detox Coverage include:
- Cost-Sharing Responsibilities - Most PPO policies will require you to share in your medical expenses. You may need to meet a deductible, make copayments or pay coinsurance.
- Precertification - You may need precertification from the insurance company in order to qualify for PPO Opioid Detox Coverage.
- Type of Treatment - Some treatments, such as inpatient detox, are inherently more expensive than others or may be subject to different coverage structures under your plan.
