Deciding to go to detox is never an easy one, you feel defeated, and most likely not well. The last thing you need to do is worry about how to pay for it. Do check to be sure that your insurance carrier Empire Florida will cover the charges. How would opening the mailbox to a bill for thousands of dollars feel while you are still newly sober?
Finding Out About your Empire Florida Insurance Coverage
EmpireWest Palm Beach insurance has been working with customers to overcome addictions and mental health issues for long before they became mandated by the government. Empire insurance has been offering these benefits to plans for almost 50 years. Your Empire plan is likely to cover the cost of detox, but you should still call to be sure that included are these benefits.
Looking into your insurance coverage for detox is not as hard as it sounds. First, make a list of detoxes that you would like to go to. Next, contact each detox to find out if they accept Empire Ft Lauderdale or West Palm Beach. Once you have a list of detoxes that you will not mind attending, set aside some time to contact your insurance carrier. Once you have about an hour to dedicate to this task, here are some great questions to have on hand when you call:
- Are the detoxes on my list covered and what level are they covered at
- Will I have a co-pay and do I need to pay my deductible before you will cover me
- How long can I stay
- Will you also cover rehab services
- Are medications covered
Once you have the answers to these questions and have a better understanding of your detox health insurance in Florida, you should be able to decide on what your next step will be. You should call your top detoxes and find out when they will have room to take you in. If your insurance plan will not cover the detoxes that you wish to go to, some centers have sliding scale fees and offer grants or scholarships. Other centers might offer a work program, or you can look to borrow the money from other sources.
No matter how you get it together, getting to detox is important! It could mean the difference between life and death for you.
What to Expect at Detox
At detox, the staff will watch and care over you. One of the main reasons to get yourself to detox is to prevent you from running out and using again while you are feeling terrible. If you have not gone through it in the past, detoxing from almost any substance is similar to a nasty hangover that lasts for days, here are some of the symptoms:
- Headache and nausea
- Emotional outbursts
- Aches and pains, and stomach cramping
- Exhaustion and feelings of hopelessness
Finding a Detox
As you can see, detoxing is both psychically and emotionally painful. This puts you at high risk for relapsing. A detox center removes that risk and gives you a much higher probability of being able to quit. At detox, the staff will make sure you feel as comfortable as possible, and that you explore different coping mechanisms and therapies.
You will learn about what cognitive behavioral therapy is, you might learn about meditation and mindfulness techniques, and you will meet the sober community in the area your detox is in. While you are in detox, you will create an aftercare plan. Your aftercare will probably include going to rehab or counseling, making a promise to go to support meetings, and form a support network. Your detox experience will prepare you for the next step in your journey to a sober and happy life.
