Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation’s top not-for-profit health plan services and healthcare providers, serving 12.4 million members. As a company, Kaiser Permanente offers employer group coverage, Medicare coverage for seniors and people with disabilities, and private insurance for individuals and families.
If you live in a Kaiser Permanente coverage area and have Kaiser Permanente health insurance, you may choose to receive medical and clinical care through a Kaiser Permanente provider. Through assessments and conversations with you, your healthcare provider may determine that addiction treatment is necessary for your optimal health. Depending on your treatment needs, your primary Kaiser Permanente doctor may refer you to a specialized addiction treatment center.
In many instances, Kaiser Permanente health insurance will cover a portion of medical detox programs for drug and alcohol addiction. However, the extent of the coverage will vary from plan to plan.
Briarwood Detox Center is in-network with several insurance providers, including Kaiser Permanente. If you are addicted and you need to complete detox before you go to rehab, your Kaiser insurance may cover a portion of your detox treatment costs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Aetna Coverage for Detox
Will my Kaiser Permanente insurance cover drug and alcohol detox?
Most Kaiser Permanente insurance plans provide coverage for drug and alcohol detox, but the extent of coverage varies depending on the type of plan you have, where you live, and whether the detox center you choose is in-network or out-of-network.
