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.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jan 18, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jan 18, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 18, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jan 18, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jan 18, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
