Get the Care You Need Covered by Your Insurance

SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) estimates that over 20 million adults need help overcoming substance abuse, but that very few actually receive treatment. Of those that don’t seek treatment, 37% cited a lack of insurance of funds to cover the cost of treatment.  An additional 10% did have healthcare insurance, but it did not cover treatment for substance abuse.
Cigna healthcare does cover drug and alcohol detox programs, and through their partnership with Detox of South Florida, they will get you the care you need to overcome your addiction.

FAQ: Get Answers to Your Cigna Insurance Questions

Will my Cigna policy cover my detox?

The coverage varies and will depend on your personal circumstances. Factors that need to be taken into consideration include the level of coverage you have, and what prior treatment you have received. Typically, Cigna will cover a patient’s detox but will require that you receive treatment from a pre-approved vendor (of which Detox of South Florida is one). There may also be some costs that will not be covered.

Should I Talk to Cigna, or Ask Detox of South Florida to Deal With Them Directly?

This depends on your preference. Insurance companies have strict procedures in place that may be difficult to navigate first time around. Our customer care staff are trained to help you navigate some of the obstacles to receiving the treatment that you need and as such will deal with your insurance company on your behalf. They will be able to answer any questions that you might have about your policy quickly and in a way that is easy to understand.

What Does Detox Coverage Include?

The process is adapted for each individual depending on the person’s specific needs. A medically-supervised detox includes 24-hour access to a doctor that is specialized in the process of detoxification. The end goal of any detox program is to successfully rid the patient’s body of a physical dependency on a substance (usually drugs or alcohol).

We want to walk with you on the journey towards a life free from addiction. Let us help you achieve sobriety through one of our top-rated alcohol and drug detox programs.

“Recovery is a process; it’s something that you have to work on every day. There’s no shame in beginning again; a fresh start gives you the chance to build a bigger, better future for yourself that is not defined by your addiction.”
- Dr. Vikram Tarugu, Owner and Founder of Detox of South Florida
