Your Options: TRICARE Alcohol Rehab in San Antonio, Texas

Alamo City has always fostered a strong connection between service members and civilians. Today, about 250,000 veterans and 80,000 active-duty personnel call San Antonio, TX home.

There are difficulties and dangers associated with military service that people from most other walks of life never have to cope with, and the transition back to daily life outside of service can be incredibly challenging. If you or a loved one is struggling with alcoholism following a return home from service, know that you are not alone in your struggle—nor is this a battle you have to fight alone.

New Choices Treatment Centers is proud to work with insurance carriers like TRICARE East to ensure veterans and their families can get the help they need when they need it. TRICARE alcohol rehab in San Antonio, TX offers you or your loved one a chance to make a new choice—one that will lead your family to a better, brighter tomorrow, starting today.

TRICARE Alcohol Rehab Options for Vets

If you are a veteran or active service member with a TRICARE insurance plan, you have a variety of options for alcohol rehab, whether or not you live in San Antonio. Your full list of benefits will vary somewhat based on the specific plan you have, but in general, TRICARE can be used to cover:

TRICARE Alcohol Rehab Options for Vets

Note that the criteria you meet may determine which of these options is available to you—and to what extent—at a given time. For example, if you have only been struggling with alcohol abuse for a short time, or maintain a high level of function in spite of your drinking, outpatient treatment may be recommended, whereas long-term inpatient or residential treatment may be deemed medically necessary for higher-risk individuals.

Which TRICARE Insurance Plan is Right for You?

Each TRICARE plan is a little different in terms of who qualifies, what benefits are available, and the extent of coverage provided. Below is a brief summary of the currently available TRICARE East options available to individuals specifically seeking TRICARE alcohol rehab in San Antonio:

  • TRICARE Prime: Enrollment required. Active service members must choose a Prime option; other veterans and their families may choose Prime or another option. Offers coverage in specific “prime” U.S. locations.
    • Includes Remote, Overseas, and Remote Overseas options as well as a U.S. Family Health Plan that offers additional Prime coverage through specific nonprofit, community-based healthcare providers in designated service areas.
  • TRICARE Select: Comprehensive coverage for individuals and families; formerly known as Standard and Extra plans. Requires a paid fee, but doesn’t require enrollment.
    • Includes Overseas option as well as: Reserve Select for qualified reserve service members and families, and Retired Reserve for qualified Select retired service members under 60 years of age.
  • TRICARE for Life: Offers additional Medicare coverage for people who currently have Medicare Part A and B. Coverage is automatic and enrollment is not required, but Medicare B premiums must be paid out-of-pocket.
  • TRICARE Young Adult: Offers coverage for adult children of service members that can be purchased after “regular” TRICARE coverage ends (at 21 years of age, or 23 if actively enrolled in college).

Can I Choose an Out-of-Network Provider?

Many TRICARE plans require that you work with an in-network healthcare provider, but a few plans—including TRICARE Reserve Select, TRICARE Prime Remote, and TRICARE Young Adult—allow you to choose an out-of-network provider. However, coverage is more limited in these cases, and you will typically have to pay a much higher cost than you would otherwise. In some cases, you may be asked to pay the full cost of treatment upfront, with the expectation that TRICARE will reimburse you at a later date (usually several weeks later). As such, it is generally advisable to choose an in-network provider when possible.

TRICARE Support for Service Families

TRICARE Support for Service Families

Both New Choices Treatment Centers and TRICARE recognize that addiction doesn’t only affect individuals, but entire families as well. Family members coping with their own alcohol addiction can use TRICARE to cover the cost of treatment, while those who are struggling with a loved one’s alcoholism can participate in family programming as well as seek their own mental health services.

Family participation has been proven time and again to be a major factor in maximizing the positive outcomes of treatment. As such, we encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or concerns about your coverage options regarding your or your loved one’s treatment options, including family support.
