Cigna for Medical Detox

Cigna covers ambulatory and inpatient detox. Ambulatory detox is provided on an outpatient basis, while inpatient provides 24-hour medical care. Both require pre-authorization. Solution Based Treatment is in-network with Cigna so it will cover alcohol detox, prescription drug detox, benzo detox and other detox programs.

Cigna Coverage for Residential Treatment

Cigna covers two kinds of residential treatment: Inpatient acute care and inpatient residential care. Inpatient acute care is normally offered after inpatient detox and is a short-term treatment. On the other hand, inpatient residential treatment may last for 28 days or longer. Both of these services require pre-authorization.

Cigna Coverage for Outpatient Treatment

Cigna does cover outpatient treatment. Please see your member benefits handbook for a full breakdown of your co-payments, deductible, and in-network provider services. 

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

Cigna covers intensive outpatient programs (IOP), but the amount of coverage will vary based on your specific plan. Intensive outpatient program coverage does require preauthorization. To get it, you will need to have a face-to-face assessment with the facility. Then, the staff members will reach out to Cigna to determine the level of care that will be authorized. 

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)

Cigna recognizes partial hospitalization programs (PHP) as outpatient care and does cover them (depending on the plan you hold). Partial hospitalization also requires a face-to-face assessment prior to authorization. 

Outpatient Treatment

According to Cigna, outpatient care coverage is available for 12-step programs, partial hospitalization, support groups, and therapy. Routine outpatient care, including time with a trained therapist, addictionologist, or psychiatrist, may also be available. However, Cigna states that ROC doesn’t include medical treatment for complex withdrawal symptoms.

How do I pay for costs not covered by Cigna insurance?

To cover costs not paid by Cigna, you will need to make an out-of-pocket payment. Some rehabilitation and detoxification programs offer sliding-scale services or financial support. Other ways to pay include using a credit card or paying with cash. 

How is a Cigna HMO different from a PPO?

Cigna’s HMO, or health maintenance organization, is different from its preferred provider organization (PPO) due to cost and access to medical care. The HMO requires you to have an in-network primary care provider and only covers out-of-network emergencies. In comparison, Cigna’s PPO allows you to seek care from an out-of-network provider and will cover some of that care, though it will cost more than in-network care. 

Can you get a single-case agreement with Cigna?

Depending on the plan you have enrolled in, you may be able to get a single-case agreement with Cigna. Some plans are more flexible than others, so you should reach out to member services to learn more about your options based on your specific plan.
