Looking for rehabs that accept medical insurance? Depending on your policy, you may be able to get coverage for some or all of your treatment here at Yellowstone Recovery. Here’s what you need to know about rehab insurance eligibility at our facility.
Recent Changes to the Law
Since its passing in 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has opened up new avenues in healthcare for many Americans. For those dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues, the ACA has increased access to professional treatment.
The ACA does not consider addiction a pre-existing condition. Where previously addiction treatment-related claims may have been denied based on an already existing (“pre-existing”) addiction, ACA healthcare plans cannot make such blanket denials. The ACA has also helped to make treatment more affordable by offering need-based tax credits.
The ACA has also expanded options for Medicare and Medicaid drug rehab patients, though Yellowstone Recovery is not a Medicaid rehab at this time (See “Our Policy” for more information).
Currently, Yellowstone Recovery accepts insurance policies from Anthem, Blue Cross, Aetna, United, Health Net, Cigna, and all PPO plans. Unfortunately, if you’re looking for rehabs that take Medicaid or Medicare, we are not able to accept those programs at this time.

“What Will My Insurance Pay For?”
It’s difficult to say for certain exactly what your insurance will pay for without more information. Not only are there differences in coverage between insurance providers, but individual policies can vary significantly even within the same provider. For example, your policy may only cover certain types of care, specific treatment facilities and/or a limited treatment duration.
The best way to know exactly what your insurance will cover with us is to fill out our online eligibility form. We’ll use the information you provide to contact your insurance company and determine what they’ll cover, how much they’ll pay, etc. This way, there will be no surprises and you won’t be hit with unexpected costs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Trying to understand how insurance works with rehab can be confusing, but we can help! Take a moment to review the following frequently asked questions to get a better idea of how it works.
What Do These Terms in My Policy Mean?
There are a few common terms and phrases you’ll see in your insurance policy. Here’s what they mean for you and your coverage.
- Deductible: The amount that you agree to pay each year before your insurer will cover certain costs. After you’ve paid up to your deductible, your insurance company will begin to pay some or all of the costs.
- Example: Your policy covers 100% after deductible. You’ve already paid $500 toward your deductible of $1,000 for the year, and you receive eligible services totaling $3,000. You’ll pay only $500 more (hitting your $1,000 deductible), while your insurance policy will pay the remaining $2,500.
- Coinsurance: The amount you will pay when healthcare costs are shared between you and your insurer (usually after the deductible is met).
- Example: Your plan says you’ll pay 30% coinsurance after deductible. You receive $100 in services. Insurance will pay $70 toward your bill, while you will pay only $30.
- Copay/copayment: A fixed amount you pay for certain things, usually at the time of service. Copays can vary dramatically, and may be required regardless of deductible or coinsurance.
- Example: Your plan has a $20 copay for office visits with your primary physician. You’ll probably be required to pay this $20 when you check in for your appointment.
- Out-of-pocket maximum: The “cap” of the amount you’ll pay in a year under your plan. Money you pay toward covered services will count toward this limit, and may include payments toward your deductible and/or in coinsurance.
- Example: Your plan says you have a $4,000 out-of-pocket maximum. Between copays, coinsurance, and payments toward the deductible, you hit that limit. After that, any other costs for the coverage year will be paid by your insurer 100%.
Is My Coverage Confidential? Can My Employer Find Out About My Addiction?
A common concern among those considering treatment is whether their employer will be made aware of their addiction, particularly if they’re receiving coverage from an employer-provided insurance policy. There’s no need to worry, though—federal law (42 Code of Federal Regulations) prohibits disclosing participation in any federally supported treatment program to any entity without the patient’s express written consent. Because Yellowstone Recovery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are covered by this confidentiality law and your employer does not have to know about your treatment.
Please note, however, that the law does allow some exceptions for things like medical emergencies, imminent threats, criminal reports, child abuse/neglect reports, and court orders.¹
Does Insurance Cover Residential or Outpatient Treatment?
The coverage you can receive at rehabs that take medical insurance depends strongly on the terms of the policy. For some, insurance might cover both residential and outpatient options for the full duration of treatment. For others, coverage may be limited to detox and outpatient care over a shorter term.
To find out what your policy offers, fill out our online insurance eligibility form. We’ll get in touch with your insurance provider and determine what they can pay for.
