First Health Choice Insurance logo

If you have an insurance plan through First Choice Health Network, you may have little-to-no financial responsibility when attending our substance abuse treatment program at Hotel California by The Sea.

Insurance companies are now required to cover some form of mental health treatment for their members. Although it may feel daunting to seek treatment for substance abuse issues, paying for rehab doesn’t need to be difficult. Find out more about how you can streamline the verification of benefits process with Hotel California by the Sea. 

Will First Choice cover the cost for my Addiction Treatment?

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that most individual and small group health insurance plans provide coverage for mental health and substance abuse services. However, many insurance plans cover the entirety of addiction treatment after personal member financial responsibilities are paid (such as copays, deductibles, and more). 

First Choice Health helps its participants attain coverage for the treatment of substance use disorders and other co-occurring mental health conditions.

Hotel California by the Sea accepts most insurance plans. Because there are many different First Choice Health insurance policies, details on coverage and financial responsibilities can become confusing for clients.
