GETTING HELP WITH SELECTHEALTH
While weighing your treatment options, you may be wondering how much this will all add up to. While, ideally, we would love to see our loved ones treated no matter the cost that is simply not practical for everyone. If you are seeking treatment in Salt Lake City, UT, and are covered by SelectHealth, here are a few things to know. Your plan determines whether or not treatment will be covered and if there will be fees. For instance, if you are covered by the Health Save plan, each tier of the plan (Bronze, Silver, and Gold) will cover drug treatment. However, depending on the respective tier, you may still have a deductible or co-pay. More so, with Benchmark plans, which are the more affordable option, your essential health services will be covered, but addiction services may not be.
The Different Coverage Plans
There are a few more options available for you. Both no-deductible plans and limited office visit waivers are available. Both of these options offer drug treatment coverage with potential co-pays. The next thing to know is that there are both HMO (Health Maintenance Organizations) and PPO (Preferred Provider Organizations). HMO plans are more affordable than PPO plan’s because PPO plan has a higher level of flexibility. Before seeking treatment with an HMO plan an individual must receive a referral from a primary care physician (PCP). At times an HMO can be limiting because the PCP will only recommend in-network providers and out-of-network providers will not be covered. PPO plans can cover out-of-network providers, but you will have to file a claim in order to be reimbursed. However, the PPO plan does not require a referral for any service. Each plan has its own benefits, and it is important to select the one that will best work for your course of treatment.
