Beacon Health Options developed from a merger of Beacon Health Strategies and Value Options. It is one of the largest privately-held Behavioral Healthcare Management companies in the United States. Beacon Health Options has over 350 clients, of which 41 are Fortune 500 Companies, and holds partnerships with over 100 external health plans.

Beacon Health Options’ focus is on behavioral health and substance use disorder management. Many health insurance providers subcontract their behavioral health and substance use disorder benefits to Beacon Health Options for special handling. Their unique specialty offers health insurance companies the services needed to provide top-quality substance abuse treatment and medical care to their members.

Substance Use Disorder Treatment with Beacon Health Options

Beacon Health Options offers a wide variety of plans to its members, all focusing on Behavioral Health and Substance Use Disorder Treatment. The coverage for these services will vary with each plan, some covering preferred providers only within the network and others allowing both in and out-of-network providers.

Many of the policies under Beacon Health Options will vary depending on the primary plan, often creating exclusions for treatment services of the members since it is not the primary insurance carrier.

A Beacon in-network plan will potentially cover:

  • Detox
  • Residential Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization Treatment (Day Treatment)
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment
  • Standard Outpatient Treatment
  • Dual Diagnosis Treatment
  • Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment

Many alcohol rehab facilities are available nationwide to treat these addictions. To learn more about programs available to you based on your unique needs, budget and location, contact our rehab advisors online or call (888) 673-9346.

Addiction Resources with Beacon Health Options

With specialties in Behavioral Health and Substance Use Disorders, Beacon Health Options has excellent addiction resources for its members. Both Member and Provider services of the Beacon treatment center have 24/7 assistance every day of the year. This company was developed to have a strong support network of medical professionals, recovery-focused programs, and strong partnerships to aid its members through all phases of addiction recovery.

Beacon Health Options’ Stamp Out Stigma program aims to end the stigma associated with mental illness and substance abuse. Stamp Out Stigma was developed by ValueOptions and is now adopted by the national sponsor Association for Behavioral Health and Wellness, as well as other companies in the healthcare industry. The campaign works to remove stigma as a barrier for people seeking the care they need to recover from mental illness or substance use disorders.

Does Beacon Health Options Allow Out-of-Network Providers?

While Beacon Health Options does typically require providers to be in-network, it does have some policy options that allow its members to seek treatment with an out-of-network provider. Often the out-of-network provider will require specific licensing and accreditations for coverage to be allowed. All out-of-network providers will hold higher deductibles and out-of-pocket costs for the members.

Does Beacon Health Options Offer Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Yes, Beacon Health offers medication-assisted treatment services, depending on the plan, and similar medical services, such as detox. For specific questions relating to medication-assisted treatment, members can contact the Beacon Health Options treatment team.

Inpatient Treatment Coverage with Beacon Health Options

Beacon Health Options covers inpatient treatment services for its members seeking a substance abuse disorder treatment program. However, the amount of coverage varies with each plan. Typically inpatient treatment services require the provider to be in-network. Beacon Health might allow a single case agreement with out-of-network providers in emergency situations or if an in-network provider does not have availability in their area. For in-network provider services, the members will have a copay for these services, while out-of-network provider services might be subject to a deductible and coinsurance.

The cost of treatment will vary according to the member’s deductible, coinsurance, and out-of-pocket maximum for out-of-network providers. Depending on the level of outpatient care, pre-certification might also be required.
