Frequently Asked Questions About First Health Coverage for Detox

Will my First Health insurance cover drug and alcohol detox?

Most First Health insurance policies will cover drug and alcohol detox. However, depending on the specific policy you have purchased, your health insurance benefits may have limitations on the extent of the coverage. Our staff can verify your First Health insurance benefits to determine the degree of coverage available for inpatient detox treatment.

What types of detox does First Health cover?

Depending on the type of coverage you have, First Health may cover inpatient drug detox for several days. Unlike some other health insurance providers, First Health will work with your doctor to determine the ideal length of stay for your detox treatment to ensure that you get the proper care you need to fully recover and move on to the next level of treatment in your rehabilitation.

How can I verify my First Health insurance coverage?

It’s easy to verify your First Health insurance benefits with the Briarwood staff. All you have to do is call us or fill out the form on this page. It only takes a few minutes, is completely confidential, and obligation-free.

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

No one else on your First Health insurance policy will be notified when we complete an insurance verification.

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

Absolutely not. We do not require that you enroll in treatment at Briarwood Detox Center if we complete an insurance benefits verification for you. If you find that a different treatment center will better suit your needs or provides better coverage with your insurance, we respect your decision to seek treatment elsewhere.

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

There is no fee to begin the admissions process or to verify your First Health insurance benefits for detox.

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

In some instances, your First Health insurance benefits won’t cover the complete cost of drug detox. If this is the case for you, there are several alternative payment options you can use to cover the remaining out-of-pocket cost. These options include:

What other benefits does First Health offer for addiction treatment?

Depending on your coverage, your First Health policy may also cover inpatient drug rehab, outpatient drug rehab, IOP, and/or behavioral counseling upon the completion of rehab. If your policy covers out-of-network treatment providers, you may also opt to enroll in rehab after detox at an out-of-network center.
