The coming of a new year brings an opportunity to review, update, and change your health insurance coverage. As set forth by the Affordable Care Act, substance abuse treatment is an essential health benefit, which means benefits packages must include comparable coverage of substance abuse treatment.
Tips for Health Insurance Shoppers
Don’t Overlook Your Deductible
If you’re considering enrolling in a new health insurance plan this holiday season, make sure to pay attention to the deductible. By choosing a package with a low deductible, your monthly payment may be higher but you may also be able to offset more expansive treatment services, such as residential addiction treatment.
Consider Your Co-Pay
Additionally, consider the co-pay rate, which dictates the costs of clinical appointments. If you’re planning on attending an intensive outpatient addiction treatment program or outpatient therapy, you may want to consider a benefits package with a low co-pay rate.
