The cost of getting treatment varies greatly depending on the type of care that is needed. Health insurance often includes coverage for chemical dependency treatment, which can help reduce costs. Minnesota residents may also apply for financial help through their local county, commonly called Rule 24 assistance. This must be done before entering treatment, as the county will help you determine your eligibility, and then will help place you in an appropriate program.
Covered by Most Insurance Plans
Meridian Behavioral Health is in-network for most major health insurance plans, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, HealthPartners, Medica, and U-Care, and we are able to work with many others. We also accept Rule 24 funding for treatment, but ask that patients obtain M.A. to cover medical costs and medications not covered by Rule 24. Meridian Behavioral Health is accessible to all public and Medicaid funding plans.
We can help you verify what your treatments options are covered by your insurance plan, and help you through any pre-admission requirements. For specifics, please contact our admissions staff.
Accepting Direct Access
Meridian Behavioral Health follows the Minnesota statewide direct access process. We are here to help. If you or your loved one does not have a funding source, we will work with you to see if you qualify.
