Amerihealth Rehab Coverage

Alcohol rehab costs are covered by AmeriHealth Insurance under its Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans. For coverage of rehab services, they must be deemed medically necessary by the policyholder’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) who then will provide a referral to the Alcohol Rehab.  Magellan Behavioral Health, Inc. manages and delivers AmeriHealth’s alcohol rehab services as the provider network.
