Does Tricare Health Insurance Cover Drug Rehab in Texas?

If you have Tricare for your health insurance in Texas, your plan may include coverage for some drug rehab and therapeutic mental health services.

Tricare is pleased to provide coverage for a wide spectrum of concerns, and as is the case with any health insurance provider, an individual’s plan will outline certain services that are covered and some that are not. To learn more about the specifics of using Tricare to cover some of the costs associated with drug rehab in Texas, we encourage you to reach out to Tricare today by calling the 800 number on the back of your insurance card.

The options for treatment for substance abuse include a wide range of services, and each patient’s treatment plan will be based upon his or her unique set of strengths and challenges. As you prepare yourself to enter treatment, Starlite Recovery will partner with you and your family to help you understand the coverage available to you through Tricare so that you have a clear picture of your benefits prior to arriving at our center.

At Starlite, our staff is here to help remove some of the confusion that can so often surround health insurance benefits and the limitations of coverage. However, you may be surprised at just how many types of treatment services are covered by Tricare, some of which may include: emergency inpatient services, detoxification, medication assisted treatment, mental health therapeutic services, partial hospitalization, residential treatment facility care, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychological testing and assessment, psychotropic drugs, electroconvulsive treatment, collateral visits, various ancillary and experiential therapies, and more.

What Types of Drug Rehab Does Tricare Cover?

As with any type of health insurance, there are certain caps on the type of coverage one can receive. For example, there are certain treatment modalities that Tricare does not cover, some of which include aversion therapy, and domiciliary therapies like halfway houses. The type of drug rehab that one needs will depend upon a variety of individual factors, and the staff at Starlite are here to help you and your loved ones understand the types of treatment available to you at our center, and to make recommendations so that you can find success in recovery.

Of the many supports we offer, we provide verification of benefits for incoming patients so that you know exactly what types of treatments your Tricare insurance will cover prior to being admitted to our center. We are happy to initiate this process before you arrive, and you can contact us with your insurance card in hand to have us speak to Tricare directly about your plan’s coverage.

How Much of the Cost of Drug Rehab is Covered by Tricare?

The cost for drug rehab services will vary depending on what treatment modalities an individual requires, and the overall duration of treatment required. As such, it is difficult to make generalizations about the cost of care when it is so dependent upon each individual’s unique situation. At Starlite, we understand the anxiety that can often accompany questions about the cost of care, and we are here to help you understand your benefits so that during your time with us you can focus on your goals for recovery, rather than worry about how you will pay for the services you need.

What Can I Do if Tricare Doesn’t Cover All of My Drug Rehab Needs?

The experienced, compassionate admissions specialists at Starlite know that paying for treatment is an important aspect in the decision to enter our care. Therefore, we are committed to ensuring that you understand your financial commitment prior to beginning treatment. Sometimes insurance does not cover all the expenses for services an individual needs during treatment, or may place limitations on the type of services once can access, or for how long a person can engage with these supports during a certain interval of time.

However, we at Starlite are here to help remove any barrier that may be standing in the way of accessing what could be life-saving care, and we will work with you and your family to create a payment plan that you are comfortable with for services not covered by your Tricare insurance.

How Can I Confirm my Tricare Benefits?

In order to verify your benefits with Tricare, and to learn more about the specifics of your drug rehab coverage, simply contact Starlite today with your health insurance policy information. We can speak to Tricare on your behalf, and help you understand the limitations of your plan so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to the financial aspects of healing at Starlite in Texas.

I felt alone in this world confronting my problems. Fortunately, the staff at Starlite Recovery Center are well-equipped in their fields and were able to provide me with the assistance I needed in the admissions process. Starlite Recovery Center changed my life for the better!
