Addiction Treatment Provided by

What is Included in Magellan
Health Insurance Programs?

While Magellan Health specializes in behavioral health services and provides excellent benefits for substance abuse and mental health treatment, available services and the percentage of coverage of those services can widely vary from state to state and by the type of Magellan substance abuse rehab coverage. In general, the following services can be covered by Magellan drug rehabs:

Detox: Medical detoxification helps clients withdraw from the substances they abuse in an environment that is safe, secure, and comfortable. 

Inpatient Rehab: Also known as residential treatment, clients in an inpatient rehab are required to live at the rehab facility or in nearby housing. 

Traditional Outpatient: People in traditional outpatient treatment, receive the important programs and services they need while being able to remain at home to uphold their work and family obligations.

Partial Hospital Treatment (PHP): A more intensive outpatient treatment program for people who are at high risk for relapse or have a medical or mental illness that requires immediate intervention.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP): An outpatient option for those needing more intensive care but has the flexibility in allowing people to live at home. IOPs do feature detox and some medical care services

Aftercare: This can include alumni programs, continued counseling and therapy, and sober living homes.

To know what services are covered, refer to the summary of benefits provided by Magellan Health. If you have questions about whether a Magellan drug rehab in California provides coverage for the program you need or have other coverage questions, call Magellan customer service and speak to a representative.

In general, inpatient treatment costs considerably more than outpatient programs. However, services in all levels of care are at least partially covered as long as those services are deemed medically necessary. This includes individual, group, and family therapy, medical detox, mental health services, and meals, among other services. Usually, experimental therapies and some holistic therapy programs are not covered under a Magellan drug and alcohol rehab plan.

In-Network Addiction Treatment Coverage

In-Network and Out-of-Network Coverage and Costs

With your Magellan Health insurance plan, you have both in-network and out-of-network coverage. If you are unfamiliar with these coverages, this section will further explain these in more detail. For a drug rehab in-network with Magellan Health, that provider has a contract to provide treatment services to Magellan Health policyholders. As a result, you will pay less for services, and can be seen in lower copays, coinsurance, and deductibles. In fact, there may be treatment programs and services that may be completely covered by a Magellan in-network provider.

In contrast, an out-of-network provider may provide the treatment services you need, but you will be paying a higher rate for those services. When you see an out-of-network provider, you will be subject to higher copays, coinsurance, and deductibles. There may be cases where some out-of-network providers won't cover certain services at all—and you will have to pay for those out-of-pocket. For non-covered services, providers may charge a rate that is higher than the standard out-of-network rates. This is especially true if you are looking out of state for treatment.
