Frequently Asked Questions About Cigna Coverage for Detox

Will my Cigna insurance cover drug and alcohol detox?

Cigna does provide in-network and out-of-network coverage for mental health and substance abuse disorder services, but the amount of coverage varies greatly depending on the type of Cigna healthcare plan you have chosen.

What types of detox does Cigna cover?

Cigna offers coverage for inpatient medically-assisted drug and alcohol detox, which is what we offer here at Briarwood. Medically-assisted detox is by far the safest and most comfortable way to detox. The benefits outlined in your insurance policy will determine which facilities Cigna will cover as well as how much financial assistance will be provided.

How can I verify my Cigna insurance coverage?

Verifying your Cigna insurance benefits will tell you how much of the cost of detox your health insurance will cover. You can verify your Cigna health benefits by calling Briarwood Detox Center and completing a free benefits verification over the phone. It only takes a few minutes, is completely confidential, and does not obligate you to enroll in our detox program.

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

No. The verification process is completely confidential and no one else will be alerted when we contact your insurance company.

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

There is no obligation to enroll in treatment at Briarwood if we complete an insurance benefits verification for you. Whether or not you choose to enroll is up to you.

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

There is no cost to begin the admissions and insurance verification process at Briarwood. This is a free service we provide to all potential clients.

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

Depending on the specific details and limitations of your Cigna insurance, the cost of drug and alcohol detox services at Briarwood may not be fully covered. If this is the case, we can review other payment options with you. These may include third-party healthcare loans, HSA funds, Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs), or an out-of-pocket payment.

What other benefits does Cigna offer for addiction treatment?

Cigna also provides coverage for ongoing addiction treatment services such as inpatient residential drug rehab, outpatient drug rehab, and mental health services. If, upon completion of your detox program, you would like to enroll in a rehab program, your Cigna health insurance may cover a variety of in-network and out-of-network facility services. Your treatment team at Briarwood can help you navigate the options to find a program that is both affordable and appropriate for your treatment needs.
