Mental Health Treatment

Anthem offers comprehensive coverage for mental and behavioral health treatment.

However, rates will vary significantly depending on what your plan is and how many days you go to treatment.

Dual Diagnosis

Anthem offers full support for dual diagnosis programs. This means you can treat mental health and substance use disorders via a combined trajectory, with a treatment plan that incorporates both. That allows you to get a broader treatment plan that tackles mental health and substance use disorder symptoms where they might interfere with treatment, helping you to improve your total mental health rather than focusing on one issue at a time. That can dramatically improve the quality of your treatment. Like with other behavioral and mental health coverage, Anthem’s only requirement is that you be recommended to the program by your doctor.
