How to pay for private rehab: Bupa

There are many drug and alcohol rehab programmes available throughout the UK for people who are feeling overwhelmed from depression and anxiety and begin to abuse alcohol and other substances.

Rehab treatment programmes vary from experiential, therapeutic, support groups, intensive 12-step programmes and so much more.

What works for one individual, may not necessarily work for another.

That’s why here at the Executive Rehab Guide we use specialist admissions officers to connect you to the right treatment, in the right facility.

Our rehab wellness facilities use intensive, but personal programmes that are covered by all major private healthcare providers in the UK and afar, such as BUPA, Aetna, Aviva, CIGNA, WPA, AXA PPP, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Coventry Health Care, JSIS and more.

Admission through private medical insurance

Our rehab facilities know how important it is not to delay – that’s why the admissions process is very quick and easy.

Using private medical insurance to pay for your treatment can be arranged within 48 hours.

Residential rehab treatment through BUPA

Since the experience of addiction can often be extremely isolating, it is important that the individual’s family understand as much as possible about the situation in order to provide the best support they can.

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 the insurance package that you have chosen.

Many top rehab clinics will be preferred providers to BUPA healthcare insurance. 

How Bupa cover works

  • Call your chosen rehab clinic with any questions about the admissions process and treatment
  • Call BUPA to find out if your medical insurance package covers residential rehab treatment
  • Request a referral to your chosen private rehab clinic from your GP and send the clinic your BUPA insurance number
  • The admissions team at your chosen private rehab clinic will liaise with BUPA and arrange for admission.

Follow these steps for medical insurance admissions:

  1. First, find out if your medical insurance covers residential inpatient rehab treatments as not all providers will cover this in their policy. However, insurers we have worked with in the past who fund treatment at our Castle Craig resort include BUPA, CIGNA, Aetna, WPA, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Coventry Health Care, AXA PPPJSIS and more.
  2. Next, you will need to request a referral from your GP. If you opt to choose Castle Craig for your treatment, once you have received the referral from your GP you can then send us your insurance number and we’ll take care of the rest.
  3. The final stage we will take care of. It will involve us liaising with your insurance provider to organise a speedy admission for you. Once all the details have been confirmed we will then invite you in where our specialist consultant will provide you with a pre-admission assessment to highlight the best treatment plan moving forward.

Please note that in emergency circumstances, we can offer immediate admissions. Learn more about the admissions process here.

Other ways to pay for treatment:

  • Private funding: Often the fastest way to be admitted is through private paying individuals. To admit yourself as a private patient, you can call our admissions department on 0808 231 5213, who will be able to discuss with you different payment options. To be admitted, you can provide us with a letter from your GP describing your medical history to ensure the treatment provided is safe and suitable. However, we understand in extreme instances where confidentiality is wanting to be achieved, we can look into alternative resources we can use. Apply for admissions here.
  • NHS funding: In Executive Rehab’s Experience, we have seen how difficult it can sometimes be to get private funding for residential addiction treatment. However, we have seen in many instances with the right persistence and patience that NHS funding is possible, although not instant. See: NHS or private rehab?
  • Alternative payment plans: For people in serious need of private and immediate care, but are concerned about how they will be able to afford treatment can get in touch with to discuss if some payment plan or cross-border healthcare funding can be arranged.
