How Much Does Rehab Cost With Magellan Insurance?
The cost of rehab with Magellan insurance will depend on several factors, including the specific policy and plan you have, the type and duration of treatment needed, the location of the treatment facility, and any deductibles, copays, or coinsurance requirements that may apply.
Magellan rehab coverage provides various plans, including both in-network and out-of-network options. In-network providers typically have pre-negotiated rates with Magellan, which can result in lower out-of-pocket costs for the insured. Conversely, out-of-network providers may not have pre-negotiated rates, which can result in higher out-of-pocket costs for the insured.
Inpatient treatment, which requires staying at a treatment center for an extended period, tends to be more expensive than outpatient treatment, which allows you to live at home while receiving treatment. A general estimate of the typical monthly cost of inpatient rehab with insurance is $5,000 to $25,000 or more, depending on several variables.2 Additionally, on average, the cost of outpatient therapy, or receiving treatments without being hospitalized as a patient, can range from $1,400 to $10,000 for 30 days.
Again, however, the above are only averages that vary according to many factors. Therefore, these numbers may not accurately represent what you’ll pay for treatment with Magellan rehab coverage.
