How Your MultiPlan Benefits Cover Addiction Treatment
MultiPlan policies are written by the insurance payer or employer to fit the needs for the specific members. While most MultiPlan policies cover addiction treatment there may be differences in the amount of coverage with each policy. These differences are typically the out of pocket expenses for the member as well as how long treatment will be covered (30,60,90 days or even unlimited benefits) as well as the levels of care covered (inpatient and/or outpatient services).
In most cases MultiPlan has contract services with specific addiction treatment providers. For these services you may be subject to deductible, however most require the member to pay a copay for in-network providers. When seeking treatment with an out-of-network provider MultiPlan works with the provider to choose a set amount for payment of each service, this amount agreed upon by both MultiPlan and your provider will be subject to your member deductible and coinsurance.
