I feel like Cornerstone gave him all the right tools. He knew how to do it. It was something we could have never done. I just could totally see kind of a personality change in him of wanting, and knowing, that he could achieve and do higher things and greater things. That has to be the people (at Cornerstone).”

Meritain drug rehab coverage includes many types of drug rehab programs including inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab programs. The amount you pay out of pocket for rehab while covered by Meritain Health insurance depends on your specific policy, the services you are seeking, and other factors.

Some Meritain Health care plans fully cover residential treatment programs, while some offer partial coverage. Depending on your policy, Meritain Health will cover all or some of the costs of your stay at a rehab facility.

However, Meritain may limit coverage in a residential facility to a maximum amount of days per year. Regardless, Meritain rehab policies offer great coverage for those seeking treatment. 

Many Meritain Health insurance plans require policyholders to meet a deductible and pay a coinsurance to seek rehabilitative services for addiction. For more information on these terms, visit our health insurance terminology guide.

Frequently Asked questions

Meritain Health provides coverage for alcoholism, prescription drug abuse, street drug abuse, and co-occurring disorders (mental illness and addiction). Several types of treatments are available for any addiction including residential, partial hospitalization, standard outpatient, and intensive outpatient

The first step in getting treatment for an addiction is often to go through a detox program. Whether or not someone has to go through detox depends on the type of substance being used. Detox programs are medically supervised and ensure that the person is stable and able to safely complete treatment. After the detox process, additional levels of care will be recommended based on the person’s needs.

During inpatient rehab, the patient lives in an addiction rehab facility and participates in intensive therapies such as individual therapy, group therapy, EMDR therapy, and more. The idea is to learn the coping mechanisms necessary to live life on life’s terms and to let go of destructive coping mechanisms. 

Group sessions with other members help improve their confidence and interpersonal skills. These groups create an atmosphere of support and foster human connection. 

Partial hospitalization programs are often covered by Meritain Health. The daily structure and services offered in partial hospitalization programs are fundamental to building and sustaining a solid life in recovery. 

Depending on an individual’s circumstances, support system, and the severity of their substance abuse, different levels of care may be recommended.

Outpatient programs may not be suitable for certain addictions such as cocaine addiction, fentanyl addiction, prescription addiction, and methamphetamine addiction. They are often recommended for people who have already completed treatment and are looking for continued support.

Alcohol Rehabs that accept Meritain health

Meritain Health alcohol rehab normally has four phases: alcohol detox, inpatient or outpatient programs, ongoing therapy, and aftercare.

Alcohol detox should never be done alone; medically-assisted detox for alcohol addiction is the standard procedure. Medically-assisted detoxification ensures that withdrawal symptoms do not impair the patient’s normal functioning. Some patients may experience severe withdrawal symptoms, which may cause potentially fatal complications if not managed carefully. 

Inpatient treatment is recommended for people with severe alcohol abuse problems as such programs involve medical management of both physiological and psychological aspects of alcoholism.

The final phase of Meritain Health alcohol rehab focuses on addressing the psychological aspects of alcohol abuse. Patients take part in one-on-one meetings with their counselors and learn coping mechanisms. The sessions aim to develop healthy routines for patients and help them identify mental patterns that lead to alcohol abuse. 


Dual Diagnosis or Co-occurring Disorder Treatment

Co-occurring disorders are mental health and substance abuse problems within the same person. Meritain rehab coverage includes treatment for co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. Over 9 million adults in the United States suffer from co-occurring disorders, according to SAMHSA’s 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

To determine whether a person is considered dual-diagnosis, a clinician will meet with the patient and assess their needs, identify their strengths, and figure out potential barriers to recovery. Rehab specialists then use this information to develop an integrated plan of care that addresses the patient’s mental illness and substance use disorder at the same time. 

Co-occurring disorders can be complex to treat. It’s important to know that getting the recommended treatment can reduce a person’s likelihood of leaving rehab early or relapsing.

Recovery is an ongoing process and relapse is possible even after completing rehab. Relapse is a risk when  treating substance use disorders but it should not be looked at as a failure.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that relapse rates while in recovery are between 40% to 60%. Relapses can be analyzed to create prevention plans that will improve a person’s odds of remaining sober. Relapses can often help rehab specialists identify what needs to be changed in the patient’s plan of care.

Meritain Health understands that those struggling with substance use disorders may need rehab more than once. Meritain will usually pay for rehab if deemed medically necessary, regardless of how many times you have previously been to rehab.
