Residential rehab treatment through BUPA

If you have private healthcare insurance through BUPA which you pay privately or which your company pays for you, you may be covered for all or part of your treatment at a residential alcohol or drug rehab clinic.

Some policies cover alcohol and drug rehab treatment and some don't. This depends on the insurance company and insurance package that you have chosen. Many top rehab clinics will be preferred provider to BUPA healthcare insurance. 

Alcohol and drug treatment programmes are usually covered by major private healthcare providers in the UK and internationally, such as BUPA, AXA PPP, Aviva, Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna and Tricare.
