PPO Rehab and Cocaine Treatment Coverage
Cocaine is a highly addictive drug that affects both your mental and physical health. Recovering from this addiction requires time and consistent effort. For many people, professional addiction treatment will also be required.
Although professional addiction treatment can be costly, you won't pay as much for treatment if you have health insurance coverage through a policy with a preferred provider organization, or PPO.

What is a PPO?
A PPO is a network of doctors and medical facilities that have a standing agreement with your insurer regarding patient care. If you purchase a PPO plan, you will be encouraged to use the providers from within this network in order to maximize your PPO Cocaine Treatment Coverage. Some of the main features of PPO plans that may affect your treatment include:
- No referral required. If you have a PPO plan, you won't need to obtain a referral from your primary care physician before you begin addiction treatment.
- Choose any doctor or facility. PPO plans allow you to receive treatment services from the provider of your choice
- More coverage in network. Under a PPO plan, you will receive a higher level of PPO Cocaine Treatment Coverage if you utilize in-network doctors and facilities during treatment. Your expenses may still be covered if you utilize an out-network provider, but your out-of-pocket costs will increase.
Estimating Your Costs
Under a PPO plan, you may still be required to pay a portion of your own treatment expenses, even if you always use doctors and facilities from the PPO network. To estimate how much you will pay after your PPO Cocaine Treatment Coverage, consider these variables:
- Deductible - You must pay at least this amount toward your medical expenses for the year before PPO Cocaine Treatment Coverage will begin.
- Coinsurance - After meeting your deductible, your financial responsibility for most subsequent expenses will be calculated as a set percentage of the bill. This is known as "coinsurance."
- Copays - Certain services may require a copay, which is a flat fee due at the time of your appointment.
- Out-of-Pocket Maximum - Your out-of-pocket maximum is the maximum amount you will pay for your own covered treatment expenses during the year.
Keep in mind that, although referrals are not required under a PPO plan, you may still need to obtain precertification for some kinds of treatment. Contact your insurer to learn more about your coverage.
