Insurance Coverage for Alcohol Rehab

Interested in cutting back or quitting alcohol? Concerned about the cost of treatment? If you have health insurance, you may have more options than you’d expect.

Most insurance companies now recognize the importance of treating substance use disorders and other behavioral health issues. This means that many offer some amount of coverage for alcohol treatment. Depending on your plan, you may be able to get most or all of your expenses covered for attending rehab.

How Does Insurance Coverage for Rehab Work?

The details vary based on which plan you’re enrolled with. In many cases, insurance plans have specific programs that are “in-network.” These are generally the easiest and most affordable to access. Some plans may also require that you visit your physician or primary care provider for pre-authorization before beginning treatment, but this isn’t always the case.

Deductibles and out-of-pocket costs also vary depending on your specific plan. In general, insurance companies offer broader coverage for more affordable options, such as outpatient rehab and telemedicine. This is because the cost of rehab can be quite steep for some inpatient programs.

The best way to learn which options your plan covers is to get in touch with the company directly. In most cases, you can call the number on the back of your insurance card, or get in contact through your plan’s website.

Why Telemedicine For Alcohol Treatment?

There are many rehab options out there, but there’s a reason many insurance companies are beginning to offer treatment through telemedicine. Online rehab programs like Ria Health are:


Rehab through telemedicine is accessible from anywhere, and can be tailored to your schedule. You don’t need to put your life on hold or travel long distances to get the help you need.


Ria’s program uses only evidence-based methods, proven to help people reduce or quit drinking for the long haul. Our members see an average 75% reduction in their drinking within the first year.


With or without insurance, telemedicine-based services tend to be less expensive. This is good for everyone involved, and makes it possible to stick with treatment for long enough to establish real change.
