As substance abuse and addiction continues to rise in the United States, access to treatment programs is becoming a more urgent matter. To help address this problem, Hickory Treatment Centers has been working to expand the treatment options available to its clients in Indiana.
Choosing to seek out rehabilitation and addiction treatment is a huge decision that lets individuals take control of their life again. For this reason, many private and public insurance markets are including mental health services in their covered expenses. While any long-term medical condition can be worrisome when it comes to the financial side of things, Hickory Treatment Centers works with multiple insurance companies to make it affordable.
Hickory Treatment Centers Proudly Accepts HIP Insurance
The Healthy Indiana Plan, or HIP, is Indiana’s state sponsored healthcare. Coverage through HIP is available for residents of Indiana between the ages of 19 and 64. There are also other requirements for eligibility such as income status and any existing disabilities. The program started in 2008 to create a network of medical providers that cover all specialties and areas.
In doing so, the HIP amassed a large amount of various health education and literacy resources. Not only does the insurance help cover medical expenses, but it also strives to make Indiana’s residents healthier and better informed about their body’s needs. Through adequate healthcare and a more informed population, the HIP provides a two-front approach to a healthier state.
Part of the resource network is the assistance residents can receive in order to find employment that offers health benefits. While the HIP insurance offers vital coverage, finding an employer that offers insurance can fully cover the cost of healthcare for Indiana residents. Additionally, finding gainful employment can help ease the stress and anxiety that come with being underemployed.
Mental Health and Recovery Services Covered by HIP
Every iteration of HIP insurance plans offers coverage for:
- mental health counseling
- evidence-based addiction therapy
- medical detox
- cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- medication management
- in and outpatient rehabilitation services
The addition of mental health coverage means the HIP now provides over 1.5 million residents with access to care they didn’t have before. The base coverage for each plan is the same but there are additional plans available depending on age group and existing conditions. Each plan type brings all levels of addiction and treatment care to participants which includes Hickory Treatment Centers.
