The treatment options that are covered will be dependent upon the type of plan you have.  There is a range of delivery methods where addicts can access drug rehabilitation.  For example, outpatient rehab may be covered.  This could be at local clinics, addiction treatment centers, counseling programs, or the local health department. Outpatient drug rehab is a good option for an addict who is still functioning, such as holding down a job.  Your health insurance plan may also cover intensive outpatient programs.  These types of services provide more days per week for treatment.

The treatment hours each day are often longer than a standard outpatient center.  For more severe addictions, these are good options for addicts.

Some Cigna health insurance plans may cover partial hospitalization programs. This is often a five day per week process. The addict will go to the local hospital each day, where there can be more medical supervision and help. This is often a good option for more severe addiction or addicts who have health problems.  Finally, a Cigna health plan may cover residential drug rehab.  Inpatient drug treatment does provide a wide variety of treatment methods.  These can be long-term or short-term treatment, but your health insurance plan may not always cover long-term treatment.
