Kaiser Permanente is a not-for-profit health plan service with over 11 million members. Kaiser offers private health insurance plans to individuals and families, as well as group plans to employers. They also offer Medicare coverage for seniors and people with disabilities. Kaiser also offers addiction treatment coverage for plan members.

At Design for Change Recovery in Lancaster, CA, we are proud to be an in-network provider for Kaiser Permanente Insurance for addiction treatment.
Addiction Treatment Coverage Provided by Kaiser Permanente
Kaiser Permanente covers partial or full costs of substance use treatment and mental health treatment. Typically, substance use and mental health disorders go hand-in-hand requiring comprehensive treatment.
The coverage plan you have with Kaiser determines how much of your treatment will be covered. The plan will also determine the type or level of treatment you will receive. You may have to pay some of the costs out of pocket.
To start your substance use treatment, you must meet with your Kaiser Permanente doctor for an assessment and referral for treatment.
Our insurance specialists at Design for Change will verify your insurance and work with Kaiser Permanente to obtain the level of treatment you need. As another option, you can verify your insurance by using our online form or contact Kaiser Permanente to check your coverage. Design for Change will work with you to find sources for alternate funding if treatment is not fully covered.
Does Kaiser Permanente Cover Inpatient Rehab?
Yes. Kaiser Permanente does cover most forms of inpatient treatment. The type of plan you have will determine the duration and extent of coverage you receive. Typically, long-term inpatient rehab is for individuals who have severe addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders. It provides a secure environment. Clients remain at the facility 24/7 during treatment where they can avoid the triggers and temptations that cause relapse.
Inpatient addiction treatment may include specialized programs including dual-diagnosis treatment, gender-specific programs, and programs for first responders and veterans. Design for Change Recovery provides an inpatient program that offers an evidence-based, full continuum of care designed to maximize recovery.
Does Kaiser Permanente Cover Outpatient Rehab?
Members with behavioral health benefits can receive full or partial payment for intensive outpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab can be your primary treatment or it can be a step before or after inpatient rehab. Our intensive outpatient program at Design for Change provides the same evidence-based, full continuum of care we provide in our inpatient programs. We offer short-term treatment such as 30, 60, or 90-day outpatient plans.
Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) Through Kaiser Permanente
In addition to detox, outpatient, and inpatient coverage, Kaiser Permanente also covers partial hospitalization programs. PHPs are more intensive than standard outpatient programs. For instance, you will spend several hours a day, five days per week in treatment and therapy. Kaiser will cover full or partial coverage for PHP, depending on your health care plan.
What Does Kaiser Permanente Cover During Rehab?
Kaiser Permanente offers health care plans that provide different addiction treatment coverage. For example, the Platinum HMO plan for California covers the following for rehab:
- Inpatient detox
- Medical detox
- Room and board
- Recovery services
- Medical services
If you have Kaiser Permanente Insurance and choose Design for Change as your addiction treatment provider, you’ll be assured of getting the highest quality treatment available.
