Substance Abuse Coverage, Amerihealth Health Insurance Coverage Cares About Your Mental Health
Addiction is a disease that can affect every aspect of someone’s life. It is believed that some 22.7 million people in this country currently battle an addiction. Many of those are ready to quit, but feel incapable of doing so alone, not in the least because of the significant withdrawal symptoms and cravings that are associated with it. One important reason why many don’t get the help they so desperately need is because they believe they cannot afford it. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, drug and alcohol treatment is now classed as a type of mental health treatment, meaning insurance companies must pay for it. Exactly what they will pay and how much will vary considerably. The good news is that if you have cover through AmeriHealth insurance, some or all your expenses could be paid for.
