Benchmark Transitions is pleased to announce that effective August 1, 2018, Benchmark is contracted with Southern California Kaiser Permanente for young adult substance abuse and mental health treatment.
"We are excited about this partnership with Kaiser Permanente," states Founder and CEO Jayne Longnecker-Harper, M.Ed. "Becoming credentialed and contracted with Kaiser Permanente in Southern California is a long and comprehensive process and it demonstrates how effective our treatment programs are here at Benchmark Transitions, as Kaiser doesn't offer long term contracts with just any provider. We've seen an increase in the numbers of families, and their placement consultants, to find exceptional treatment programs that offer the ability to utilize insurance to offset the family's out of pocket costs. We're pleased to be able to offer this option so that more families can access the care they need for their young adult son or daughter," Mrs. Harper concludes.
Benchmark is contracted with the Southern California region of Kaiser Permanente for sub-acute residential detoxification, primary residential treatment, and extended care (Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient) levels of care. Families would be required to meet any co-payments per their policy, as well as the non-insurance covered costs of Transitional Living - such as room & board, meal plans, academic support, high school, collegiate recovery support, life skills (banking, finance, culinary arts), and other ancillary therapeutic programs offered. Benchmark makes these affordable and manageable for most families by setting a flat rate fee for non-insurance covered program services. Benchmark can also work with other regions, such as Northern California, Colorado, Hawaii, Georgia, Northwest (Washington/Oregon) and Mid-Atlantic, on a case-by-case referral basis.
Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation's not-for-profit health plans, serving over 12 million members, with headquarters in Oakland, CA. For more information on Kaiser Permanente visit their site at Fast Facts About Kaiser Permanente.
