Treatment Cost

TREATMENT COST

Cost is an important issue when it comes to addiction and mental health treatment. At Atlanta Recovery Place, we want to make sure that treatment meets your needs and that the options you choose are affordable for you and your family. When you call us, our admissions coordinators gather information in order to provide you with a confidential assessment. They do this so that they can gain context for your situation and find out what your specific needs are. Here are some of the things that influence treatment costs:

  • The individual’s clinical diagnosis
  • The recommended length of stay in treatment
  • Whether the situation requires specialized services
  • The individual’s insurance coverage or preferred payment options

Costs can vary because each person’s situation is different. Our admissions coordinators are trained to determine costs based on the information you provide us, so it’s important that you are as accurate as you can be. They can discuss all your options with you and find the solution that best fits your needs. Here are a few ways that people commonly pay for treatment:


INSURANCE

Determining your insurance coverage for treatment is an important process, and it’s one that we can help you with. Your health insurance policy can be difficult to interpret, and all the language tends to be challenging to understand. We are here to assist you in interpreting your benefits. Our team of professional admissions coordinators works with insurance companies every day to ensure that patients get the best possible benefits out of their policies. We can speak to them and convey all the important information to you. Our admissions coordinators will give you a free, confidential assessment and provide you with a verification of benefits at no cost to you. At ARP, we want to make sure that you get the treatment you deserve and that the costs are feasible for you. We will work with your insurance company at each stage of the treatment process to get as much coverage for you as your policy dictates. Here are some terms that an admissions coordinator may discuss with you. These are common insurance terms that may be used to describe your policy and benefits.

Out of network coverage

This applies to a treatment provider that does not have a predetermined contract or cost agreement with the insurance company, but people can still receive treatment with this provider. The rates will not be as discounted as they are for in-network providers, but finding a specialized facility may be worth the out-of-network rates if the in-network providers do not offer the options that a person needs for treatment. .

Deductible.

Your deductible is an annual cost amount that you must pay before insurance will begin to cover your expenses. If you have a high deductible plan, you are accepting a higher overall cost in order to have a lower premium each month. If you have a low deductible plan, your premium will be higher each month. Once the deductible amount is reached, your insurance will cover all or a certain majority percentage of your health costs.

Private Pay.

Some individuals choose a private pay option for treatment, which means that they cover all treatment costs without the use of insurance. Private pay is a viable option for those who feel comfortable using their own resources.
