You can also speak with Villa Kali Ma intake staff directly and we will help you clarify what level of services we can provide, and how much will be covered by your Anthem BCBS plan.

Does Anthem BCBS Cover Rehab?
Anthem BCBS health insurance generally covers some portion of the cost of inpatient treatment (rehab) as well as some outpatient treatment services (OP), including Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP). Anthem BCBS may cover behavioral health therapy groups and individual sessions with a therapist as well.
Anthem BCBS treatment coverage varies by state, policy, and provider, as well as by individual. Several services related to drug and alcohol treatment are classed as “medically necessary” and therefore usually covered, such as the costs of medical detox from certain substances including alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids.
The degree of drug and alcohol treatment coverage that Anthem BCBS will provide for you, including rehab and outpatient services, depends on your specific plan. Further, it’s possible that you receive partial coverage, but not full coverage for the recommended amount of time of treatment.
