Does Magellan cover drug and alcohol detox?
Magellan’s plans that include Magellan Life Resources will cover substance abuse treatment after detox treatment is approved. And if it is considered necessary to find drug or alcohol rehabilitation by an Employee Assistance Program, Magellan will pay for all or part of the treatment.
The length of treatment covered by Magellan will vary based on what is deemed essential after private counseling. Also, Magellan’s coverage can range depending on whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is required.
In many cases, the entire treatment cost is covered for inpatient network providers, and 50 percent of the treatment cost is covered for out-of-network inpatient facilities.
For outpatient treatment, there is a 10 percent copay. After this copay, Magellan will cover 90 percent of the costs at a network facility and 50 percent of the fees charged by out-of-network treatment centers.
