Valium Treatment Insurance

Addiction and anxiety disorders often go hand and hand. A well-rounded treatment program that includes mental health treatment along with Valium addiction treatment is recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is covered by many health insurance plans. Since mental health benefits, which are covered under behavioral health plans, vary by insurer and state, it is best to check with your insurer’s customer service department to verify what is covered by your plan or to call a helpline that can verify your insurance benefits.

Federal Laws Covering Anxiety Disorders and Valium Addiction

New laws that have taken effect in the past few years have expanded the level of mental health benefits in the U.S. While all states now require basic mental health coverage, the benefit level can vary drastically. In 2008 the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act required that mental health benefits match the level of physical health benefits including copayments, coinsurance and out-of-pocket maximums. The law does not apply to small plans with 50 or fewer members and small non-federal government plans with 100 or fewer members. The Affordable Care Act, which takes effect in 2014, includes even more provisions to increase mental health coverage and affordability.

There are several different types of anxiety disorders and each of them has unique symptoms, according to SAMHSA. While anyone may experience temporary feelings of anxiety, a person with an anxiety disorder feels this for an extended period. Anxiety disorders cause feelings of fear and uncertainty. Individuals with an anxiety disorders must have these feelings for at least six months, according to guidelines from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). An individual who receives treatment for his addiction and anxiety disorder simultaneously has a better chance at long-term recovery.
