Are Alcohol & Drug Addictions Covered Under Health Insurance Policies?
Having an addiction is generally recognized to be an illness. Whether the addiction will entitle a person to insurance benefits will depend on the specific provisions of the applicable insurance policy. Under the typical group benefit policy, a substance abuse addiction to drugs or alcohol can form the basis of a disabling condition that would entitle an individual to disability benefits, provided that they are compliant with medical treatment, which may often include the necessity to be actively participating in a drug or alcohol treatment program.
