Arizona has long been a destination for people to retire and for those seeking relief from asthma and cardiopulmonary conditions. The warm and dry climate makes Arizona a haven for those afflicted. It is home to the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River and not too far from Las Vegas or Lake Tahoe in Nevada where magnificent casinos await your “donation”.
What is America’s Rehab Campus
In December of 2016, Michael Zipprich, a real estate/development executive, opened the first America’s Rehab Campus (ARC) in Tucson, Arizona as a response to the growing opioid crisis and the resulting shortage of treatment facilities and patient beds.
Zipprich surrounded himself with a leadership team with close to 100 years of combined experience in the treatment of substance abuse, behavioral health, nursing and community health care as well as other medical specialties.
Since then, three other facilities are now operating in Dana Point, California, Midland, Texas and Lake Charles, Louisiana.
The staff at ARC includes rehabilitation nurses and care coordinators, registered dieticians and chefs, medical social workers and vocational case workers. Last and certainly not the least are the patients and their families who have the most to gain when recovery is successful.
The Affordable Care Act
In 2010 the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) was signed into law. This article will not focus on the pros and cons of the ACA and will leave the political squabbling to the politicians. The fact remains that the ACA classifies substance abuse and mental health care services as essential healthcare benefits and this impacts how your insurance carrier covers the costs of your stay at a rehabs treatment facility in Tucson. Essential coverage includes detoxification, stabilization, inpatient and outpatient treatment and care and residential rehab programs.
There are four types of health insurance plans commonly found today:
- Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) – These are usually the least costly but beware of out of network costs that are not covered.
- High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) – This plan is good for those who can afford the elevated deductible, and it also offers lower premium payments.
- Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) – Out of network providers are not covered and referrals to see in-network specialists are required.
- Health Savings Account (HSA) – The money comes from your pocket but there are tax benefits, and if you also have an HDHP together with an HSA the result is more comprehensive coverage.
ARC has helped many people navigate through the “jungle” of paperwork, forms, and bureaucracies associated with insurance claims. For most patients, this is a one-time process, and we are there to see that your insurance covers everything that your policy entitles you.
The Commission accredits ARC on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). To keep this accreditation, CARF requires that a rehab facility undergo an analysis of patient outcomes to ensure that any treatments are effective. This, along with our client testimonials, will assure you that ARC is the best possible choice if you need help with alcohol and drug abuse or both.
