It can be difficult to know what addiction treatment costs.

This page explains partial hospitalization costs and shows you how to use insurance to pay for treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program Cost

PHPs (partial hospitalization programs) are a type of treatment that offers more structured support than regular outpatient care but less than inpatient rehab. You attend therapy sessions during the day and return home afterward.

PHPs can be less expensive than inpatient rehab. How much does partial hospitalization cost ranges from $300 to $500 a day. This can vary based on things like:

  • How long you are in treatment
  • Location of program
  • Types of services
  • Insurance coverage

If you have health insurance, the best way to work out your costs is to check what your insurance will cover.

PHP Insurance Coverage Check

Do you want to know How much does a partial hospitalization program cost with health insurance?

Many insurance plans cover the full cost of PHP treatment. ACA (the Affordable Care Act) says that all insurance plans must help pay for mental health and addiction treatment, including PHPs.

These types of insurance may cover the costs of PHP:

  • Private health insurance plans through work or the marketplace. How much they cover for PHP treatment depends on the specific plan.
  • Medicaid is a government program that helps people with low incomes get healthcare. It might pay for some or all of PHP treatment, but this can vary based on state and plan.
  • Medicare is health insurance from the federal government for people over 65 and some people with disabilities.

You can easily check your insurance coverage by clicking here. This will help you understand how much of the program your insurance might pay for and what costs you might need to cover yourself.

Can I Take FMLA for a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

You can use FLMA for a partial hospitalization program. FMLA stands for Family and Medical Leave Act. It lets you take time off from work without losing your job so you can take care of your health. This law allows you to take up to 12 weeks off each year if you have serious health conditions that need treating with a PHP. This time off is unpaid, but it protects your job and health insurance while you are away.

Using Parent’s Insurance for PHP Up to Age 26

If you are under 26 years old, you can use your parent’s health insurance for PHP treatment. This means you can get help from the insurance for addiction treatment just like you would for other medical conditions until you are 26 years old.

Taylor Lilley CDCA, PRS

Growing up in Louisiana with addiction running rampant on both sides of my family. A life away from drugs and alcohol seemed impossible for someone like me. I remember what it was like sitting across from someone thinking there is no way they could ever understand what I was going through.

Sharing my experience offers a credibility and a certain type of trust with clients that only someone who has walked down this road can illustrate. To immerse myself further into the field of addiction, I am currently studying at Cincinnati State for Human and Social Services.  I hope I never forget where I came from, if I can do it, so can you!

 My name is Mary D. Porter. I received my Masters of Social Work in 2008 from The University of Cincinnati. I received My Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor Licensure in 2001. I retired from The Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center on April 14, 2014. Currently, I am the Associate Clinical Director for The Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers in Cincinnati.. Due to the fourth wave of the Opioid Epidemic in 2019,  I decided to enter back into the workforce to assist the addicted population.

The overdoses were astounding and I wanted to help.  I consider myself  to be an advocate for the addicted population. My compassion, resilience, empathy, wisdom, knowledge, experience and  love I have for this forgotten population goes beyond words. I consider what I do for the addicted population as a calling versus a “career,” because I too was once an “addict and alcoholic.” Today I am 45.5 years alcohol and substance free.

Ben Lemmon LCDC III

Hello, my name is Ben Lemmon, and I’m the Vice President and Clinical Director at Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers. I’ve been working in the addiction and mental health field since 2013 and decided to enter the field after overcoming my own challenges with addiction.

When I first meet a client, I always explain to them that the reason we are meeting is because they are not capable of obtaining or maintaining sobriety, and my goal is to create a person that can maintain sobriety. I believe a person’s personality is made up of their thoughts, feelings and actions and my job is to help clients identify the thoughts, feelings and actions that have them disconnected from recovery and provide them with the tools to live a healthy and happy life.
