Private health Insurance
Private health insurance for addiction treatment can be a crucial resource for those struggling with substance use disorders and behavioural addictions. Health insurance offers a range of coverage options and can help ease the financial burden of receiving treatment. At Recovery Lighthouse, we partner with AXA and Bupa health insurance to help relieve our clients of some of the financial costs of rehab so they can focus on their recovery.
What are the benefits of private health insurance?
There are various benefits to private health insurance for addiction treatment, including:
Immediate access to treatment…
Private insurance allows you to begin private rehab treatment without having to win on an NHS waiting list. This enables people struggling with addiction to receive the help they need promptly, without any delays.
The treatment you need…
Some people may require a longer treatment period, while others might benefit from a shorter stay. Private insurance allows you to make this decision based on their personal requirements, rather than financial constraints.
Reduced financial stress…
The cost of addiction treatment can be a significant source of stress, which may exacerbate existing mental health issues or even lead to relapse. Private insurance helps alleviate some of the financial burdens by covering a portion or the entirety of treatment costs.
How does the process work?
Both AXA and Bupa have similar coverage processes for addiction treatment. First of all, you will be assessed by a psychiatrist recognised by your insurance company. The company will then determine eligibility for coverage with the duration and type of coverage provided, depending on your specific policy and the terms of the agreement.
If you hold an AXA or Bupa insurance policy and are prepared to begin your recovery journey, contact Recovery Lighthouse today. We can discuss all the details with you and answer any questions you may have.
