Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield

Does Empire BCBS cover the costs of drug or alcohol rehab?

Beach House works with Empire BCBS to get you the treatment you need. Empire BCBS covers many drug and alcohol rehab treatments.

What kind of substance abuse treatment am I covered for, and how much is covered?

Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield Rehab coverage can include both outpatient services, as well as family counseling, and inpatient services, including detoxification and rehabilitation. Consult your policy for levels of coverage.

What are the additional expenses that I am expected to be responsible for?

You may be responsible for a portion of the admission fee, a deductible, a coinsurance percentage and/or a copayment, depending on whether you have an HMO, PPO or EPO plan. For example, with the Direct HMO plan, you are eligible for 60 outpatient visits, including 20 family counseling visits per calendar year, at no cost to you. With the Empire Total Blue Choice Plan, the same services require your contribution of a deductible and 10% coinsurance. Consult your policy for details.
