Center of Excellence Travel Benefit for substance use disorder and addiction treatment

SmartHealth is pleased to announce the Travel Benefit program for substance abuse and addiction treatment. The Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery in Brighton, Michigan, and the Ascension Illinois Foglia Family Foundation Residential Treatment Center outside Chicago, Illinois, are now identified as Centers of Excellence (COE) for substance use disorder and addiction treatment. When treatment is received at one of these facilities, this new benefit provides:

  • Assistance with and coverage of travel to the facility.

  • Reduced out-of-pocket costs.

    • PPO plan – The copay and deductible will be waived, and 100% of charges for medical expenses will be covered.

    • HDHP plan – HDHP members are subject to copays, coinsurance and deductibles. A federal regulation requirement for HDHP plans does not allow these fees to be waived.

The services provided at our COE centers include evidence based, research-supported interventions provided by experienced clinical professionals. The treatment plan for each participant will be personalized according to each individual's needs and customized to provide maximum benefit.

We are offering this program to support our members that are struggling with addiction and are ready to begin the path to recovery. We are committed to upholding the highest standards of privacy and confidentiality for our members. Your decision to seek treatment will remain confidential and only those individuals you give permission to know will be aware of your decision.
