A substance abuse problem is something that affects not just the life of the abuser, but also the person’s loved ones, and the community as a whole. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act there has been important changes that recognize addiction and substance abuse as a disease. As a result of these two laws, medical insurance providers now must offer the same coverage for addiction treatment as they do for mental health treatment. Great West Insurance is no different in that. What the two Acts have not stipulated is how treatment is covered and this means there are substantial variations between not just the insurance providers, but also between plans as well.
