A substance abuse problem in a person can destroy lives, families, and communities. Thanks to the Mental Heath Parity and Addition Equity Act of 2010, addictions are now considered to be illnesses, which means that insurance companies must offer some form of coverage for them. However, exactly what they cover, how much they cover, how long they cover and where they cover, can vary greatly from one company to the next, and even from one plan to the next. If you are covered under a GEHA Health plan, then you may wonder what type of coverage you can expect for your detox and rehab facility. Unfortunately, this is a hard question to answer, because some GEHA Health plans only cover alcohol detox, whereas others cover all types of substance addictions and both detox and rehab.
