For those struggling with addiction or a mental health crisis, getting treatment can feel daunting. Trusted recovery facilities such as The Phoenix can help individuals feel confident in the treatment they will receive. However, many people still refrain from going to a treatment center because they assume the cost will be unattainable. Luckily, The Phoenix has many different types of accepted insurance, including Blue Cross Blue Shield.
What is Blue Cross Blue Shield?
Blue Cross Blue Shield is an association of 36 large, separate health insurance companies and organizations all across the United States. The association offers health care coverage in every state and even spans to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

BCBS Addiction Recovery Coverage
Having insurance that offers addiction recovery coverage is a huge help for individuals seeking treatment. Blue Cross Blue Shield healthcare coverage depends on the specific benefits outlined in an individual plan. Most plans will cover medically supervised detox, depending on the treatment being alleged necessary by a doctor. Generally speaking, Blue Cross Blue Shield will provide their policyholders with addiction recovery coverage that include:
- Behavioral therapy
- Short-term treatment
- Long-term treatment
- Outpatient treatment
- Medication-assisted treatment
- Inpatient or residential programs
- Medically supervised detox
- Partial hospitalization programs
As mentioned above, the benefits provided by each Blue Cross Blue Shield policy holder is dependent on that individual’s health care plan and coverage. Additionally, though an individual policy might offer all of the benefits listed above, the percent of coverage offered will vary depending on individual coverage. As such, it is important to consult with a Blue Cross Blue Shield specialist to determine your individual coverage.

Mental and behavioral health is often seen as the same, though there are some differences that may arise when looking at health care coverage options for treatment.
