When your health insurance helps you pay for care, it becomes to find the treatment that is right for you. Many plans allow you to save even more by choosing health services within the plan’s network. In Louisiana, Blue Cross Blue Shield is one of the insurance companies that can help to insure you.

Ready to enter an inpatient drug or alcohol program, or go to outpatient visits? Maybe you’re at the point where you’re considering how to pay for the treatment that can put your life back on track. There are a few ways to have more affordable treatment, including choosing outpatient care and comparing the prices of various facilities. On top of that, you can use health insurance coverage to pay for a share of your treatment costs.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans and Benefits

You have many Blue Cross Blue Shield individual health insurance plans to pick from in the state of Louisiana. You can choose from plan types and different metal levels, which designate the amount the plan pays and the amount you pay. The names of the plans include the deductible amount for staying in the network for your care. Since all of the plans cover both substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment, you can use them for either type or both if you have a dual diagnosis.

There are Blue Cross Blue Shield multi-state plans for Louisiana with differences in deductibles and coverage. One is the $1500 IND PPO plan. If you go to treatment in the network, you will pay a $5 copayment for office visits or the deductible and then a 20 percent co-insurance for inpatient and outpatient services. Outside the network, you pay the out-of-network deductible and then a 40 percent co-insurance. You often need authorization for your care.

The other multi-state plan, the $2000 IND PPO plan, requires a $40 copayment for office visits or a 30 percent coinsurance for inpatient and outpatient treatment after the deductible is paid. For out-of-network providers, you pay a 50 percent co-insurance. You might need authorization for your treatments.

Available to Louisiana residents, there is a range of Blue Max plans within the different metal levels. One such option is the bronze Blue Max 70/50 $3000 IND PPO plan. On this plan, you could expect a 30 percent co-insurance after paying the deductible if you go to in-network inpatient or outpatient treatment. The co-insurance goes up to 50 percent if you go outside the network. You often need authorization for the treatment you require. You can also find other plans with different deductibles and plan coverage. The Blue Max plans go up to the platinum level with the Blue Max Copay 80/60 $250 IND PPO plan. With this plan, you pay a $15 copay for office visits or a 20 percent co-insurance after the deductible for inpatient and outpatient treatment options. Outside the network, you would pay a 40 percent coinsurance after the out-of-network deductible instead. You may need to get authorization for your health care services.

There are also numerous Blue Saver plans that also have varying deductibles and coverage amounts, ranging from bronze to gold. One of the bronze plans is the Blue Saver 70/50 $3300 IND High plan. For in-network providers, you would pay the deductible and then a 30 percent co-insurance for both inpatient and outpatient services. For out-of-network providers, the co-insurance is 50 percent. You sometimes need to get authorization for your care. At the other end, the gold Blue Saver 100/80 $1300 IND High plan requires the deductible with no charge after that for inpatient and outpatient services when you go to treatment in the network. For out-of-network care, you pay the corresponding deductible and then a 20 percent co-insurance. You might need authorization for your treatment.
