Does my health insurance cover 1 Method Center?

To see if your plan covers treatment at 1 Method submit your insurance online.


1 Method is Joint Commission Accredited.

What is the Joint Commission?

The Joint Commission is an internationally recognized nonprofit tax-exempt 501(c) organization that accredits hospitals, health care organizations and programs. Most insurance companies and the majority of US state governments recognize Joint Commission accreditation as a condition of licensure for the receipt of Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements.

What services are covered
by my health insurance?

Health insurance policies differ in the amount and type of treatment they will cover, but typically, they’ll cover (either partially or fully) one or more of the following services that 1 Method provides:

In most cases, your health insurance will cover and require pre-certification, initial screening, and assessment. In turn, your diagnosis and to what degree a procedure or intervention is medically necessary will dictate how much coverage you will receive. Additional amenities, like a private suite, may result in an out-of-pocket fee.  

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2008 and Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act strengthened the requirement that your health insurance company covers behavior and mental health disorders (addiction, SUD, anxiety, depression, etc.) in a way that’s comparable to any other medical condition. In addition, we believe the better news is this: If you’re looking for help covering the costs of treatment, the ACA ensured you don’t have to worry about being denied coverage on the basis of a pre-existing condition.

What are the non-insurance options?

There are two non-insurance options:

  • Using private funds
  • Going to a free program

If you or your loved one doesn’t have health insurance, don’t despair. You can still get help. Visit SAMHSA to learn more about the free treatment options available in your state. If you have health insurance – but we are unable to work with your plan – you can pay privately. At your request we will provide you with a superbill, which is an itemized bill of all the services you received while at 1 Method. You can then submit the superbill to your insurance provider to seek full or partial reimbursement.

Insurance FAQs: What You Need to Know

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about insurance coverage for alcohol, drug, and mental health treatment.

What does “In Network” mean?

Healthcare providers that are “in network” with your insurance company typically will be more affordable, as they have negotiated agreed upon rates for care with physicians, therapists, or mental health and substance abuse facilities. For example, a therapist who usually charges $120 per session might be contracted with an insurance provider to only charge them $70 per session. The insurance company can pass the savings along to its members. In-network providers are also known as preferred providers or participating providers. While 1 Method is not currently in-network with anyone at this time, we are in the process of applying for in-network contracts with some of the most popular insurance providers.

How do I know if my insurance covers residential treatment?

If your insurance plan covers residential treatment for mental health disorders and addiction, it will include a component called “mental health and substance abuse coverage.” The easiest way to determine what type of mental health and substance abuse insurance coverage you have is to submit your insurance online. Once you provide your insurance details, we’ll call your insurance provider and work with them directly, to determine exactly what mental health and substance abuse benefits you’re eligible for under your plan. We then reach back out to you to discuss how the benefits are applicable for care in our program, as well as deductibles met, co-insurance and out of pocket expenses not covered under your plan.

What are “Out-of-Pocket” costs?

These are costs not covered or reimbursed by your insurance company. Please call today for a phone consultation and speak with someone from our admissions team.

What happens when I call for an insurance benefits check?

We’ll assist you in managing the logistics – the process is swift, simple, and free:

  1. Phone consultation– Speak with an admissions coordinator about what’s been going on, so they can recommend treatment options that fit your needs and preferences.
  2. Benefits check– Once you decide which treatment option you prefer, a team member will contact your insurance company to determine the details of your coverage applicable, including deductibles met, co-insurance, out-of-pocket expenses or applicable non-covered care.
  3. Estimate– Using the information from the conversation with your insurance company, we’ll provide a treatment cost estimate which considers any out-of-pocket costs (outstanding deductibles, co-insurance, non-covered care). An insurance deductible is the amount your insurance requires you to pay before they begin covering the costs for For example, if your deductible is $2500, you’ll pay for the first $2500 of treatment service costs before your insurance starts paying their portion.
  4. Treatment reviews– All services we provide must be authorized by the insurance company. This, however, is not a guarantee of insurance payment, as all payment is subject to eligibility and other terms of the benefit.
  5. Concurrent review and continued stay certification– Most insurance policies today require ongoing communication from the treatment facility utilization management team and the managed care review department at your insurance company. This is done to ensure your healthcare dollars are being used appropriately. This communication may be required weekly or daily and is contingent upon the requirements of your insurance policy.
  6. Medical necessity for care– All insurance policies have their own policy requirements, which may allow them to certify an admission or continuation of care. Each insurance policy is unique and governs how treatment stays are initially reviewed after admission and subsequently certified. Please understand that admission authorization or concurrent treatment certification is not a guarantee of payment to the treatment facility. All care is governed by insurance policy requirements, insured and dependent eligibility, and terms of the contractual agreement between the insurance company and the person insured.

Will my insurance benefits cover my entire length of stay?

It depends on your insurance provider and what it considers “medically necessary.” Our treatment team will conduct a thorough review when you enter treatment to assess your physical and mental health. We’ll then make a recommendation on the length of stay we feel is appropriate based on the severity of the presenting symptoms. We’ll communicate with and submit all the required documentation to your insurance provider. Please note that each insurance company has different requirements about what is considered “medical necessity.” Our recommendation for how long you stay is not a guarantee your insurance company will approve the same length of stay.

Do I need to submit insurance claims for treatment?

No. Our billing department will handle all the paperwork. We submit bills directly to your insurance provider. If you are paying privately however, we can also provide you with a superbill upon request which you can submit to your insurance company for partial or full reimbursement.

Will I know out-of-pocket costs before entering treatment?

After we determine your insurance coverage for SUD and mental health treatment, we’ll provide a detailed estimate of any out-of-pocket costs you are likely to incur. We’ll also keep you updated throughout your stay should that amount change. Please note that an estimate is not a guarantee of costs.

What if my insurance won’t cover treatment?

If you don’t have insurance coverage or your insurance provider does not cover mental health and addiction treatment, you have a couple of options:

  1. Self pay– You may pay costs out-of-pocket at the self pay rate.
  2. Go to a free program

We encourage you to discuss this with admissions. We have relationships with many facilities and providers and are solution focused. Our commitment is to help you find the next best treatment solution should your insurance benefits or financial ability not cover the cost of residential care in our facility.

What if I decide to use my insurance later?

You may request to use your insurance upon discharge. Our Billing Department will provide a comprehensive statement (Superbill) to you so you can seek full or partial reimbursement from your insurance provider. If your intention is to utilize your insurance, it is best to utilize your insurance at the beginning of your treatment to increase the possibility of coverage for your care.
