What is Carelon Insurance?

Carelon Healthcare was first developed in 2022.  In June of that year, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield announced their partnership with Carelon, which has since become its go-to health services brand. The national health insurance provider covers roughly 1 out of every 3 Americans. Currently, Carelon comprises Anthem’s current capabilities and services businesses. Therefore, those covered through Carelon can access diverse healthcare services.

According to Carelon’s website, Carelon is a healthcare services company that delivers whole-person care with connected healthcare solutions for better outcomes and experiences. The company’s name combines the word ‘care’ and the suffix ‘lon,’ meaning whole and complete — referencing the comprehensive medical services that Carelon provides.

In March 2010, the U.S. government enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This law mandates coverage of behavioral healthcare services, including addiction and mental health treatment. Health insurance providers like Carelon cover such services partially or in full.

Types of healthcare services provided by Carelon include:

  • Pharmaceutical services/medication management
  • Behavioral healthcare, including substance use disorder treatment
  • The delivery of complex care, such as treatment for co-occurring disorders and/or trauma therapy
  • Individual, group, and family therapy services
  • Family practice

Carelon Healthcare in Nashville offers various services, from primary care, medical, pharmaceutical, counseling, and dental insurance to long-term care and disability plans. 

Additionally, Carelon extends its coverage to addiction treatment, counseling, psychiatric services, and mental health treatment, including therapy for common mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and PTSD. 

Therefore, Carelon is a comprehensive choice for those seeking physical and mental health coverage.

Does Carelon Cover Addiction Treatment?

Understandably, covering the cost of addiction treatment is a top concern for those seeking professional help for the first time. Hence, the good news is that Carelon Healthcare covers addiction treatment under the Affordable Care Act.

By teaming up with Carelon Healthcare and other regional and national providers, Freeman Health Partners helps ensure that addiction treatment services are accessible and affordable for those who need them.

Freeman Health Partners and Carelon Healthcare in Nashville offer addiction treatment and mental health services at different levels of care. The level of care depends on each individual and their clinical and medical needs. 

For treatment to be fully effective, follow-up with a comprehensive and personalized aftercare plan is essential. Therefore, each patient receives thorough aftercare planning services and case management services. Patients will have everything they need to continue thriving in every aspect of their lives.

Carelon Healthcare in Nashville Levels of Care

Freeman Health Partners has developed a comprehensive and integrated program that addresses substance use disorders, mental health, and dual diagnosis simultaneously. The program focuses on preparing clients for continued success in recovery. Additionally, it increases access to treatment while setting a higher standard of care for our patients and their loved ones. 

Some of the levels of care offered by Carelon Healthcare in Nashville include: 

  • Medically Monitored Detox: Professionals recommend professional detox services to anyone who has been misusing chemical substances. The withdrawal symptoms associated with drug and alcohol use can be dangerous if not monitored closely. Once a person is physically stable, they will transition into the next appropriate level of care. Options include inpatient treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, or partial hospitalization. The best level of care depends on the clinical needs of the individual.
  • Residential Treatment: Once a patient is physically stable in detox, they might choose to transition into a residential treatment program. A residential program combines dual diagnosis treatment options with diverse evidence-based therapies. 
  • Partial Hospitalization (PHP): PHP is similar to residential treatment. However, patients can return home or to a sober living house once they complete a full day of treatment. Freeman Health Partners provides a comprehensive PHP program. It can serve as a step-down level of care or a stand-alone treatment option. The program focuses on substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health concerns.
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP): IOP is a step down from PHP and is an ideal option for those with mild or moderate substance use disorders and no co-occurring mental health concerns. In many cases, individuals who have already completed residential treatment and PHP transition into IOP. However, it can be effective as a stand-alone treatment option.

The above services are available for individuals covered through Carelon or another primary regional or national insurance provider. Those with specific questions about addiction treatment coverage should contact Freeman Health Partners directly.
