HMO Coverage for Detox and Rehab in California

Learn How Fresh Start of California Can Help with HMO Coverage

HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) coverage can seem difficult to navigate while seeking treatment for detox or rehab. That is why Fresh Start of California is here to help provide you with more options for proper drug and alcohol detox and rehab.

The Ins and Outs of HMO plans

Like a PPO plan, HMO coverage works within a network of medical professionals, doctors, and hospitals. HMO monthly premium plans are less expensive—therefore, their networks are generally smaller and can often be less flexible.

While the majority of HMO insurance plans do cover substance abuse treatment, there may be some restrictions. That said, it is important to note that roughly 30% of Americans have an HMO plan—the team at Fresh Start of California is prepared to assist you in navigating your HMO insurance to get the treatment you need.

What you need to know:

  • HMOs work as a managed care network just like PPO plans, but they are less flexible. Your care must be within your HMO network in order for the costs of treatment to be covered.
  • Coverage can depend on a variety of factors linked to your Primary Care Physician, who may need to first determine that your specialized care in a treatment facility is necessary.
  • In addition to a recommendation made by your Primary Care Physician, authentication by your HMO administration to validate your treatment needs may also be required.
