The company manages mental health plan, employee assistance, and work/life programs through its nationwide third-party provider network. Magellan Health works with health care providers to supply customers (individuals and employers) access to affordable services, including drug and alcohol addiction treatment. Like all health insurance plans, Magellan Health’s policies have options available for addiction treatment, including detox, inpatient rehab programs, as well as other therapeutic services.
Individuals who have an Magellan Health insurance plan may wonder how much of the cost of the addiction treatment services is covered through their plan. To answer your questions about your coverage, we at Florida Center for Recovery have trained personnel familiar with insurance rules and regulations regarding detox and therapeutic drug and alcohol treatment services. With our clients' permission, we contact insurance companies, including Magellan Health, and get detail information regarding treatment benefits on client’s behalf.

Yes, Magellan Health offers insurance plans that cover the costs of drug and alcohol detox. There are different types of insurance plans and various levels of coverage, but not all of them necessarily provide treatment coverage for medical detoxification.
Florida Center for Recovery is part of Magellan Health’s network of addiction treatment center providers. Addiction treatment requires different levels of care, including detoxification, inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab, also called residential treatment, involves patients residing at our facility to receive extensive medical supervision and related therapeutic services. The length of an inpatient addiction treatment stay covered by Magellan Health depends on the specifics of the person’s insurance plan and the level of care needed, as each person’s recovery process is different and the length of treatment varies from person to person. Most common length of time for addiction treatment is about 30 days, however, 60 and 90 days programs are also available to those who need them.
