The Insurance Benefits of Accreditation for Drug Rehabs and Addiction Treatment Centers
“Why am I so adamant about accreditation? I believe that in the evolving health-care marketplace of the future, accreditation will become a necessary component for the billing of government insurances as well as private insurance companies.”
Dr. Rishi Khatri is a healthcare attorney and doctor, who has worked in the healthcare clinical field since 2008. He recommends that patients go to recovery centers that are accredited, like Scottsdale Recovery Center.
Accreditation is almost critical to the insurance world, because of how unregulated the drug rehab industry is.
“For instance, talking with a detox center client of mine just last week, they told me they turned down four detox clients with good plans (low deductible, co-pay, and total out-of-pocket) because the detox center did not have an accreditation. What’s more, if a rehab wants to take any type of Federal, State, or Military insurance plan, they will want accreditation.”
For recovery centers, accreditation can be a difficult strenuous process, but it is worth every minute of it for the benefit of the clientele.
“Accreditation can be a difficult process. However, this is not an arduous process if you find professionals who know what to do and when to do it. Accreditation is one way to alleviate some of the hassles of insurance reimbursement for you and your clients.
