At Guardian IOP, Highmark Health is one of many insurance providers we work with to ensure an affordable, stress-free recovery plan. Cost should never be a barrier to life-changing treatment, which is why we accept most major insurance plans, including Highmark. Highmark Health was founded in 1977 and offers coverage for a wide range of personal issues, including substance abuse treatment, through Highmark Behavioral Health benefits. Your Highmark policy may operate under a different brand name depending on your home state or particular plan. Highmark Inc, Highmark BCBS, and Highmark Blue Shield are all plans under the Highmark Health network.
Highmark Behavioral Health Services cover the cost of some, or all, treatments associated with your Guardian IOP treatment plan, including group and individual therapy, family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, as well as relapse prevention training. The Highmark Behavioral Health benefit offers substance abuse treatment and counseling for a variety of stressful and challenging situations including depression, PTSD, anxiety and/or anger issues, and help coping with loss/grief. Benefits frequently extend to sober living facilities, as well as Intensive Outpatient Programs, such as those offered by Guardian IOP.
