Do I Have To Live in California To Go To Rehab ThereDecember 18, 2015 - Addiction, Alcohol and Drug, Detox, insurance, Treatment - 0 Comments
Residence plays an important part in health insurance, and in mental health benefits after the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. For state resources and local health insurance plans, many require residence in a particular area. It may be more particular than state residence; some programs have local service areas such as a county or city. Many state and health insurance programs offer one-size-fits-all services. The best chance for success must assess the individual and meet their needs. Call us and we can help find the right solutions.
Health Plans have Territory
Healthcare providers develop plans on the basis of population and service provider resources. They use these factors to develop prices and terms of insurance coverage. Most plans limit to a geographic area that includes all or part of a single state. There are far fewer multi-state plans, but they may be necessary for areas with large cities located near borders and have suburbs in different states.
State Plans are for Residents
State government programs for treatment require residence in the state along with proof of citizenship or status. The state manages treatment programs to benefit state residents. These include treatment for low-income persons and diversion programs like Proposition 36.
Private drug programs make rules about residence, and they have little or no reason to limit treatment to California residents. Particularly in border areas, they would reach out to residents from nearby cities and bordering states. Donors and scholarship providers are free to limit their gifts and benefits to California residents. Serving residents may be part of their mission, and these providers would determine that as a policy or on a case by case basis.
