AmeriHealth Insurance

What is AmeriHealth and what do they provide?

AmeriHealth, originally known as Delaware Valley HMO, was founded in 1995 and in the past two decades has provided quality, affordable health insurance to almost 270,000 individuals and 8,000 businesses in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The company is a subsidiary of a larger provider in southeastern Pennsylvania. Their staff of nearly 200 people is spread out across numerous counties while the headquarters are based in Cranbury, New Jersey. One of AmeriHealth’s strongest assets is that they connect clients to thousands of health professionals that work for hundreds of hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the immediate area.

AmeriHealth offers POS, PPO, HMO, Medicare plans, Medicaid, and workers’ compensation; which are some of the highest-rated plans on the market in all of New Jersey. Point of Service (POS) plans require referrals from a primary care physician in order for you to see a specialist. They also command a slightly higher fee for in-network health professionals but cover doctors that are outside your provider’s network. Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) programs are much more costly, but you are allowed to enlist out-of-network doctors and specialists without a referral. Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) options are the cheapest due to low deductibles and premiums, but demand that you only consult doctors within the provider’s framework.

If you are covered under AmeriHealth insurance, you might receive some form of benefits for addiction and mental health treatment. The company maintains that they will only cover services that are medically necessary and have a set standard for what qualifies under that label.

Does AmeriHealth cover drug and alcohol rehabilitation?

AmeriHealth tends to provide coverage for most forms of substance abuse, especially ones that are experiencing high rates of usage due to epidemics. You can expect to be taken care of for the following:

The company uses a process called preauthorization to determine whether or not they will agree to subsidize benefits depending on if the treatment is medically necessary. It can happen before or after you start treatment, so note that should you began rehabilitation and the company pulls out, you will have to foot the bill. If there is a disagreement between you and your healthcare provider, you are allowed to repeal the decision and have them reconsider reimbursement,

While these are general overviews of AmeriHealth coverage, remember your individual plan could limit or restrict a wide array of services including:

Are mental health and detox included in your insurance coverage?

The majority of plans offered by AmeriHealth address addiction treatment. One of these treatment options is detox, where patients essentially live at a center, like our very own facility. Cleansing the body of harmful toxins such as drugs and alcohol, especially after long periods of use, can be an extremely difficult process. Individuals often experience painful periods of withdrawal as their bodies begin to craving. This requires the type of constant monitoring that can only be achieved with 24/7 care. Detox centers also offer medication that can ease the process of rehabilitation.

Finding the right treatment cannot be done without a healthcare professional assessing both the situation and patient. This is a process that AmeriHealth is highly supportive. Taking the time to construct a plan catered to an individual is much less costly than trying a variety of different programs that yield little to no results. 

One of the main factors that AmeriHealth considers when conducting this assessment is to look at a patient’s mental health history. If you are wondering if your insurance provider covers mental health treatment, the answer is yes. They not only want to know about your record of mental illness but aim for you to seek help for it as a stepping stone to further treatment. This is especially necessary considering the fact that mental illness often leads to substance abuse.

What other types of treatment are covered by AmeriHealth?

If you are wondering about various treatment choices, detox is not your only option. AmeriHealth does provide coverage for a variety of other recovery plans, such as the ones here at Coastal Detox.

One such alternative is inpatient or residential treatment. Here you stay at a treatment facility, engage in a wide array of recreational activities, participate in individual and group therapies, as well as enroll in twelve-step programs. You can also obtain medication to ease your path to sobriety. Partial hospitalization entails treatment for up to four or six hours daily and sometimes five days weekly. This appeals to those who prefer to return home at night after therapy and consultations with healthcare professionals. Partial hospitalization often acts as the first stage of treatment since patients do not have to submit fully to the intensity of an around the clock program. Therefore, they can ease into the treatment and decide where to go from that point. 

An even less all-inclusive option is the intensive outpatient program (IOP) where meetings only last a couple of hours per day and two or three days a week. The most noncommittal form of treatment are the simple outpatient treatment programs where therapy is kept to a minimum both in the type, usually only one form rather than a combination of methodologies, and length.

This is the top tier Rehab/Detox center in Southeast FL. I’ve heard nothing but good things about them. Their attention to detail is impressive. They specialize in treating alcohol abuse among several other conditions. If you or a loved one are looking for a blueprint on how to sober up…Coastal Detox will lead you there.

My experience with Coastal has been one of empathy, kindness and family. From Admissions to Nurses to techs I have never felt so cared for. Food and drink 24/7. Coastal is a place I went twice. First time 14 days next 6days later for another 11. At 59 and umpteen detoxes Coastal by far is Heaven Sent! As a Nutritionist and Trainer, I'm so happy to be back....the Mary ,who was lost:)

Great place . Helped me so much I am a 64 year old woman and this place got me sober with dignity and kindness. I highly recommend it plus the food is incredible. Rooms are really well laid out. 2 guys to a room . Each bed has its own t.v with head sets so you dont bother your roomate. Take an extra pillow and comfort blanket from home. At least 3 pairs of pj’ s sock and shoes and comfortable clothing fit. You do your own laundry there. I will send you the link to look at. After thinking all morning this is hands down the place for you. Lots of young people and fantastic therapists. For my wonderful son who suffers. From addiction the way I do.
