Meritain Insurance for Drug Detox

Meritain Health is a part of Aetna, which is one of the largest insurance providers in the United States. Meritain Health provides individual, family, and employer-provided plans, each with varying amounts of coverage for substance use disorder treatment and behavioral health issues.

One of the first challenges of finding addiction treatment is a matter of cost. Fortunately, if you have Meritain health insurance, you can use your insurance benefits to cut the cost of detox and rehab programs. However, each Meritain Health plan will cover addiction treatment differently. Depending on the type of plan you selected, your co-pays and deductibles will vary, but we can help you sort through the details.

Briarwood Detox Center is in-network with many insurance providers to provide affordable access to addiction treatment services like detox and rehab, and that includes Meritain Health. If you or a family member is struggling with a substance use disorder, your Meritain Health insurance policy may cover a portion of the cost of medical detox.
