SAN DIEGO, United States - December 6, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

SAN DIEGO, CA, December 3 – Sober Life Recovery Solutions recently joined the Anthem Blue Cross network of providers. Now that the rehab center is in-network, individuals with Anthem health plans can benefit from lower treatment costs.

Anthem Inc. is the largest private health insurance company in the Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) Association and the second largest in the country. In the latest report from the Securities and Exchange Commission, Anthem has more than 40 million policyholders across the United States.

8.3 million of its members are in California, where Anthem is licensed to operate under the Anthem Blue Cross trade name. This makes Anthem the largest for-profit health insurer in the state in terms of "covered lives” or the number of members with active coverage.

"Sober Life is proud to partner with Anthem BCBS to provide service to their members,” says John Moisant, Director of Operations at the Sober Life Recovery Solutions.

Sober Life is a San Diego based treatment center that offers outpatient rehab for substance abuse disorders. After gaining in-network status with Anthem on November 5, the insurer has agreed to shoulder part of their members’ treatment at the facility. As a result, the cost of addiction treatment is significantly lowered.

Anthem members with PPO may also request audits when choosing from out-of-network facilities. Auditing ensures that a rehab center is licensed and qualified to provide its services.

Policyholders still have to pay for deductibles and expenses that are not included in their health plans. However, the total cost of addiction treatment is still generally more affordable in-network. Out-of-network costs may not be as cheap. But for those with PPO health plans, it’s still more affordable compared to having no insurance at all.

Substance abuse is a problem that affects thousands in San Diego County. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there were over 6,000 admissions related to heroin and methamphetamine in 2012 alone. In 2015, the County News Center reported 253 deaths and more than 7,500 emergency room visits related to opioid use.

Given the extensive membership of Anthem Blue Cross in California, the addition of Sober Life means that locals have one more option to choose from should they decide on in-network care. Residents also have the opportunity to recover from drug addiction and alcohol use disorder at reasonable prices.

“We are working our hardest to stay true to our mission of providing quality treatment easily accessible to the community,” Moisant adds.

Apart from Anthem Blue Cross, Sober Life is also an in-network partner of Blue Cross of California, First Health Network, Halcyon, ComPsych, Humana, Magellan Health, MHN Health Net, MedNCrease, and TRICARE.

Sober Life Recovery Solutions is a rehabilitation center that specializes in outpatient care. The facility caters to people with substance abuse disorders and related problems with mental health. By providing day treatments such as Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient Programs, patients have the freedom to live normal lives while undergoing rehab.

Xi met Lam on the sidelines of a trade event in Shanghai on Monday night amid signals from China's central government that it may tighten its grip on Hong Kong to quell the unrest that has at times challenged Chinese rule. When asked if the meeting reflected Xi's worry about Lam's handling of the unrest, Hong Kong...
