Financial Matters

The cost of treatment varies based upon the level of care required, the length of stay and any additional required services.

Separately billed services include, but are not limited to laboratory services, EKGs, prescription medications, medical visits and psychiatric evaluations, one-on-one nursing care and any additional off-site services such as emergency room visits or off-site neuropsychiatric testing.

If you are utilizing insurance to help cover the cost of treatment, your share of the charges incurred for services while at Fellowship Hall may be based upon an agreement between your health insurance plan and Fellowship Hall.

Insurance Coverage

The question of what insurance covers is very common, and very complex. Insurance policies and procedures vary greatly, especially when it comes to substance abuse treatment benefits. Most insurance policies contract with a managed care company to provide individual case management of substance abuse treatment. This “managed care” requires an on-going authorization process throughout treatment, based upon a guest’s needed. Please contact us to better understand how substance abuse treatment benefits are typically managed and the medical necessity criteria on which they are based. We accept many insurance plans including:

  • Aetna Behavioral Health
  • Anthem
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Carolina Behavioral Health Alliance
  • Cigna
  • ComPsych
  • First Carolina Care, Inc.
  • First Health
  • LifeSynch
  • Magellan Health Services
  • Managed Health Network
  • MEDCOST
  • MultiPlan
  • United Behavioral Health/Optum
  • UMR
  • Value Options

Prior to admission, the staff of Fellowship Hall will check benefits and verify eligibility with a guest’s insurance company. Although a benefit may be available, it is not until a guest arrives and an initial medical assessment is done that Fellowship Hall’s utilization review staff can obtain authorization for treatment from the insurance company. Our utilization review staff will work closely with the medical and clinical team treating the guest to advocate for the maximum coverage for treatment allowed under the guest’s insurance plan.
