Overview of First Health Insurance
According to First Health Rehab, its national PPO network has “more than 5,000 hospitals, over 90,000 ancillary facilities, and over 1 million health care professional service locations…more than 96 percent of people in the United States are within 20 miles of a network provider.” Many of First Health Network’s plans provide coverage for addiction treatment but the exact amount of coverage will vary from plan to plan. Contact First Health regarding the specifics of your plan and what’s covered.
As an addiction treatment facility that is in-network with First Health, Rally Point accepts many of its different insurance plans. If you are unsure whether your Firth Health insurance provides coverage for drug or alcohol addiction treatment, we can help you determine if your plan is accepted. You can also call First Health Rehab directly to see exactly which benefits you are eligible for.
First Health Coverage for Specific Addictions
First Health Network does offer its members coverage for drug or alcohol addiction rehabilitation. The type of coverage members receive depends on the specific First Health insurance plan they have. However, First Health will typically cover (partially or completely) the costs of the following types of addiction treatment:
- Alcohol and drug rehabilitation treatment services for all types of substances. This includes both inpatient and outpatient programs, depending on the needs of the individual.
- Medical detox services. Detoxification from drugs or alcohol may include medication-assisted treatment. Coverage may include Vivitrol services.
- Drug tests and assessments. Tests may be used to diagnose the addiction and determine its overall severity.
- Maintenance therapy. This includes medication maintenance therapy and follow-up counseling., according to the individual’s needs.
- Co-occurring mental health treatment. Many people who suffer from addiction also have underlying mental health conditions. Treatment of both the addiction and the mental health disorder is essential to successful recovery.
- Family support therapy. Addiction affects the loved ones of the addicted person as well. Family therapy provides members and their families to reconcile their broken relationships.
It’s important to understand what your First Health insurance plan will and will not cover as you search for a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program. The above are a list of the most commonly recommended treatments for addiction, but there may be additional services that you need, and that First Health can help cover. Talk with your First Health representative for more information.
First Health Length and Depth of Coverage
There are many health insurance companies that only allow members to stay in a drug and alcohol treatment facility for a few days to detox. Fortunately, First Health isn’t one of them. At First Health, they are committed to working with doctors and members to determine the length of the stay that will be covered. That means that, as a member of First Health, your individual needs will be considered regarding how long and how intensive your treatment will be.
Treatment Services Covered by First Health
First Health typically covers a range of addiction treatment services that vary in intensity. The types of substance abuse treatments that are usually covered by First Health (either completely or partially), include the following:
- Detoxification treatment
- Outpatient treatment
- Inpatient treatment
- Co-occurring disorder treatment
- Individual, family, and group therapy
Additional types of therapy, as well as medication-assisted therapy, may be covered, partially or completely. Some of the treatment services that are included in the plan must be preapproved before you begin them. It’s always important to check your individual plan or speak to a First Health representative to ensure that you understand your benefits.

Rally Point Palm Beach is able to offer various therapeutic activities that incorporate the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of nature like fishing, adventure therapy, yoga, painting, and more.
