There are times when getting help for drug or alcohol addiction is challenging. What drug detox to choose and how to cover your treatment costs are two questions that don’t have to become obstacles to getting help. The good news is that in the United States, health insurance plans are required to offer benefits to cover substance abuse treatment.

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 and its expansion in 2014 now requires insurance plans to offer benefits that cover mental health diagnoses as well as substance use disorder diagnoses. This law requires that mental health benefits be in parity with other medical conditions. Allure Detox is one of those drug detox centers that take Empire Plan insurance along with many other health insurance plans.

Is Drug Detox Covered by the Empire Plan?

“The Mental Health Parity and Addictions Equity Act (MHPAEA) requires group insurers to ensure that the “financial requirements” and “treatment limitations” that apply to mental health and substance use benefits are no more restrictive than the predominant financial requirements and treatment limitations for medical and surgical benefits covered by the plan” (NCBI).

The MHPAEA has advocated for improving the financial ability of addicts and alcoholics to receive professional drug treatment. Allure Detox accepts insurance plans that offer mental health and substance abuse benefits. One specific health insurance plan that we take is the Empire Plan which is offered to New York residents. The Empire plan covers public employees and their families in New York and the mental health coverage offered by this plan usually covers a stay at our medically-assisted drug detox. We recommend that you contact our facility for a 100% confidential insurance benefits check so that we can find out the exact details of your specific plan.

Drug Detox That Takes the Empire Plan

If you or your loved one have a policy under the Empire Plan, and you are not certain what mental health benefits your plan includes, call one of our admissions representatives. Our representatives will be able to verify your insurance and explain what detox programs are covered. Once your insurance is approved, the next step is to get you or your family member to our center within 24 hours. We make this process quick and smooth so that you can begin the medically-assisted detox as soon as possible.

The type of drug detox program that the Empire Plan covers is our medical detox approach that includes our specialized and personalized MAT programs. MAT’s are Medication-Assisted Treatment Programs, which are a form of treatment that helps addicts and alcoholics detox easily by using medication under clinical supervision. Our Alcohol, Heroin, Opiate, Benzodiazepine, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Methadone, Suboxone, and Adderall detox programs are all professionally staffed by our team of medical doctors, psychiatrists, and therapists who specialize in addiction treatment. Your search for Empire Plan covered detox centers ends today while you’re under the guided care of our inpatient detox and residential treatment center.

Take the First Step to Recovery

The most important step a person can make to help themselves is to ask for professional help. Once an addict or alcoholic admits that they need help, they are facing the truth about their addiction, and this is the beginning of the recovery process. To truly help a person who is ready for a new way of life, starting the medically-assisted detox process increases their chances of remaining clean and sober and minimizes the likelihood of a relapse.

Our staff regularly works with numerous health insurance providers and can navigate through your policy to locate your plan’s benefits. If you or a loved one has insurance with the Empire Plan or another plan, our representatives can assist you. Insurance plans offer many benefits within their policies that cover detox and treatment.
