High-quality rehab can change a person’s life and provide the tools, skills and insights needed to enter into recovery. However, the first step to beginning treatment is understanding the services, benefits and degree of treatment coverage included in your Florida Blue health insurance plan.

Florida Florida Blue is an association of 36 locally-operated companies. Coverage is nationwide, with more than 106 million members in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Florida Blue is currently one of the most widely contracted insurers in the country and contracts with over 96 percent of hospitals and 95 percent of doctors.

Does Florida Blue Cover Drug and Alcohol Detox?

Orlando Recovery Center is a partnering provider with Florida Blue, which means that, in most cases, Florida Blue health insurance plans cover drug and alcohol detox services provided at Orlando Recovery Center. However, because the specific services covered under each Florida Blue plan can vary, it’s important to contact to your health insurance provider to confirm that drug and alcohol detox is covered under your current insurance plan.

Benefits Offered from Florida Blue for Addiction Treatment

The addiction treatment benefits offered in each Florida Blue plan will vary depending on the details of each person’s plan. The best way to learn more about the benefits included in your plan is to reach out to Florida Blue directly.

Will Florida Blue Cover My Entire Stay for Addiction Treatment?

As outlined by the Affordable Care Act, all individual and small group policies are required to provide some degree of coverage for 10 essential health services, which include substance use and mental health disorders.

However, the degree of coverage provided and the specific services covered may be different from one plan to the next. While one Florida Blue plan may provide full coverage for addiction services, others may only include partial coverage. You can get a better idea of the coverage offered through your specific plan by consulting your insurance manual or by reaching out to your local Florida Blue company.
