About Military Insurance

Military insurance (such as TRICARE) is a health care program that is reserved for members and past members of the American military. It used to be known as the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services but has since been renamed to TRICARE.

Further, this form of military insurance will provide coverage for a wide variety of the services that you will need as you seek to recover from your substance abuse and addiction. These services include but are not limited to family therapy, medical detoxification, outpatient therapy, and inpatient rehabilitation. These services are covered as follows:

These coverage options are available for every benefit period. It is also important to keep in mind that this type of military insurance (TRICARE) will provide coverage for a total of 3 treatments for substance abuse and addiction per lifetime.

How It Works

Military insurance (e.g., TRICARE) is a form of public health insurance program that can provide comprehensive coverage for you if you are a retired or an active member of the uniformed services. the program can also cover the treatments that members of your family - particularly your direct dependents - require.

The Defense Health Agency manages and oversees this health care insurance program. That said, the program offers a wide variety of health plans - as long as they meet the requirements for the minimum coverage outlined by the Affordable Care Act (the ACA).

However, it is important to keep in mind that TRICARE will only provide coverage for addiction treatment and rehabilitation services that have been deemed to be medically necessary. this means that a doctor has to provide proof that these services are sufficient, appropriate, reasonable, and necessary for the management of the condition that you have been diagnosed with. Further, military insurance (e.g., TRICARE) will not provide coverage for unproven drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment options - such as aversion therapy.
