Will Insurance Cover an Intervention?One of the first questions many people ask when considering addiction intervention and treatment is whether or not these services are covered by insurance. Addicts asking this question may be looking for an excuse to avoid treatment, as it always costs much more to remain addicted than it could possibly cost to treat it. Insurance coverage, scholarships, payment plans and more are available, but cost should not be the limiting factor for getting addiction help.

Insurance and Addiction Treatment

Insurance coverage for addiction recovery programs has improved. Many states now require that employers offer this insurance to their employees. Some laws that deal with discrimination due to disabilities have been successfully applied to chemical dependency, since addiction is considered a disability in many ways. Insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid paying for services such as intervention and rehab, but recovery counselors can contact insurance companies on your behalf and argue for coverage.

In most cases an intervention is not covered by insurance. It is possible to conduct an intervention without the help of a certified interventionist, but this greatly reduces the likelihood of achieving a positive result. Professional interventionists offer valuable services such as the following:

  • Verifying your insurance coverage and pushing for the best coverage possible for rehab and treatment
  • Preparing the family and friends of the addict for the intervention
    Helping to find the best possible treatment program and to prepare for immediate treatment
  • Offering experience with every possible reaction from the confronted addict
  • Handling the actual intervention and making sure it goes as planned
    Interventions are a high-risk endeavor. The odds of success are greatly increased when a professional interventionist helps. Though this may result in some out-of-pocket expense, the benefits far outweigh the costs.
