Does BHO Insurance Cover Rehab or Detox?

Behavioral Healthcare Options (BHO) insurance does offer coverage for detox, rehab, and other forms of addiction treatment programs. With its emphasis on mental health and substance use treatment, a Behavioral Healthcare Options plan means you will be helped with the cost of your addiction treatment.

Behavioral Healthcare Options strives to provide treatment that is tailored to the needs of each member in the least restrictive setting possible.4 Rehab, detox, or any other form of approved addiction treatment services are available to dependents or any other family member covered by your plan.

Types of Treatment Covered by BHO Insurance

Behavioral Healthcare Options covers a host of other substance use disorder treatments and mental health services, such as:

How Much Does BHO Cover?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires all health insurance plans, including those offered by BHO, to provide some degree of coverage for the medically necessary treatment of behavioral health disorders. This means that BHO insurance plans may be able to cover some or all of the cost of treatment for substance use disorder. However, BHO insurance may not fully cover the cost of rehab. Several factors may reduce the amount of treatment you receive, such as:

  • Type of BHO Insurance Plan.
  • Where you attend rehab.
  • Whether a rehab is in-network with BHO.
  • Intensity of treatment.
  • Length of treatment.
  • Accommodations and amenities offered by the rehab.

It’s important to reach out to a BHO representative to check your coverage before committing to treatment.

Does BHO Cover Out-of-Network Providers?

Out-of-state coverage isn’t a problem with Behavioral Healthcare Options. While their preferred provider network includes professionals from across the United States, you can work with an out-of-network provider if you choose.2 Behavioral Healthcare Options insurance partners with Health Plan of Nevada and Sierra Health and Life in the state of Nevada.1

How to Use BHO to Pay for Rehab

Using your Behavioral Health Options insurance plan to pay for rehab often involves open and direct communication with both rehab center and insurance company. One of the first steps is to contact your BHO provider in order to determine whether you will need preauthorization. After, you may want to contact any prospective rehab centers to see if they are in-network with BHO. Attending treatment at an in-network facility will often increase the amount of coverage and benefits you receive from your insurance plan.
