Frequently Asked Questions About AmeriHealth Coverage for Detox

Will my AmeriHealth insurance cover drug and alcohol detox?

AmeriHealth does provide coverage for substance use disorder and behavioral health treatment, however, the specifics of the coverage will vary depending on the policy you have chosen. For example, your policy may require you to pay a certain amount out-of-pocket before your benefits will kick in. To determine the extent of your coverage, you will need to verify your coverage with AmeriHealth directly or call the Briarwood admissions team.

What types of detox does AmeriHealth cover?

AmeriHealth may cover inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol detox treatment provided by in-network providers when it is medically necessary. To clarify, inpatient drug detox is detox treatment that is provided inside a facility and that requires the client to stay on-site throughout the duration of treatment. Conversely, outpatient detox treatment may be completed while the client commutes to and from the treatment center.

How can I verify my AmeriHealth insurance coverage?

You can verify your AmeriHealth insurance coverage by calling Briarwood Detox Center and speaking with an admissions representative. We provide free benefits verification over the phone. It just takes a few minutes, it is completely confidential, and it does not obligate you to enroll in treatment at Briarwood.

Will anyone else on my insurance policy be notified if a verification of benefits is completed?

Our insurance verification process is completely confidential, so no one else on your policy will be alerted. Your personal information is safe and secure.

Do I have to commit to treatment if Briarwood completes a verification of benefits for me?

There is no obligation to commit to treatment at Briarwood, even if we verify your insurance benefits for you. We understand that there are many factors you must consider when seeking detox treatment and it is our pleasure to assist you in finding the right detox program for you or a loved one.

Do I have to pay to begin the admissions and insurance verification process?

No. The admissions process and insurance verification are free.

If AmeriHealth will not cover the full cost of detox, how can I pay for the remaining balance?

If your AmeriHealth insurance policy only covers a portion of your drug detox treatment or does not cover any of it, there are several other payment options available to you and a member of our admissions team can explain them in further detail. Alternative options may include:

What other benefits does AmeriHealth offer for addiction treatment?

AmeriHealth may also cover additional substance abuse treatment services such as inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, IOP, and individual counseling that is provided by an in-network provider. If you would like to continue your addiction treatment after you are done with detox, we can help you determine your coverage and eligibility for benefits.
