In-Network GEHA Substance Abuse Treatment


GEHA stands for Government Employees Health Association. GEHA is a non profit member association. They provide health and dental insurance to federal employees, retirees, and military veterans. GEHA exclusively serves federal employees and their families.

6.2% of military retirees struggle with Substance Use Disorder (SUD). Recent data reveals that 5.7% of individuals working in the government/public administration sector have a substance use disorder. This statistic was sourced from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the National Survey on Drug Use and Health in 2014. GEHA’s coverage can help those suffering get the support they need.

Hotel California by the sea is a contracted provider with GEHA. We are proud to offer the comprehensive treatment needed to overcome SUD. 

If you’re a member of GEHA, you may qualify for full or partial insurance coverage for substance abuse treatment. Our insurance verification specialists can help you determine what level of coverage you have. 

Do I Have GEHA Drug and Alcohol Rehab Coverage?

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) is a federal law. It ensures that insurances can’t limit mental health/substance use disorder benefits more than other services. This applies in comparison to medical/surgical benefits.

The Affordable Care Act
(ACA) classifies substance use disorders as one of the ten elements of essential health benefits. This requires all health insurance policies to cover substance abuse treatment. The ACA expanded the accessibility for substance abuse treatment across the nation.

GEHA is required to cover SUD treatment. However, a facility being in-network vs out-of-network makes a significant difference. A facility being in or out of network affects the premiums paid by the policyholder. 
If you’re ready to pursue sobriety with your GEHA insurance coverage, there are a few things to consider.

Utilize an In-Network GEHA Substance Abuse Treatment Facility

A facility being “in-network” means that they are contracted with the insurance company directly. These agreed-upon rates between the facility and the insurance result in savings for the policyholder. Hotel California by the Sea is in-network with GEHA. This enables us to deliver high quality care while keeping your out of pocket costs low.

What are my Out-of-Pocket Costs for GEHA Substance Abuse Treatment?

Insurance benefits can vary significantly based on whether a facility is in-network or out of network. Hotel California by the Sea is in-network with GEHA. In-network facilities have agreements with the insurance company to provide services at pre-negotiated rates. This results in lower out-of-pocket costs for the insured individual.

Deductibles are the amount the insured must pay out of pocket before the insurance coverage kicks in. A coinsurance refers to the percentage of costs that the insured must pay after meeting the deductible. An “out of pocket” cost is the amount the member will have to pay before insurance will cover everything at 100%. These are all factors in determining your total out-of-pocket cost.

Each insurance plan has different dollar amounts for deductibles, coinsurance, and out of pocket expenses. It can become overwhelming extremely quickly. We recommend calling our admissions team so they can obtain an entire overview of your plan.

From there, they will forward your insurance information to our verifications department. Once they have confirmed your coverage with us, we can break down your benefits to you. This ensures that our patients do not enter treatment unsure of what their financial responsibilities will be.
