Atlanta, GA – The adolescent residential mental health treatment program of Skyland Trail, a nationally recognized nonprofit psychiatric treatment organization, is now in-network with most plans offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield. Effective August 15, 2020, Blue Cross Blue Cross Blue Shield provides in-network coverage for Skyland Trail adolescent treatment programs including residential treatment and day treatment.
Blue Cross Blue Shield is the first insurance provider to cover a portion of treatment costs in adolescent residential treatment services at Skyland Trail, which opened in October 2019. The Skyland Trail admissions team works with in-network insurance providers to secure authorization before admission into treatment services.
“This is a great day for our adolescent treatment program at the J. Rex Fuqua campus,” said Beth Finnerty, President and CEO of Skyland Trail. “Being in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield means more adolescents and their families will have access to life-changing psychiatric treatment.”
The cost of treatment reflects Skyland's evidence-based individualized therapies, expert multidisciplinary treatment team, holistic hands-on and expressive therapies, integrated nutrition and healthy living activities, and respectful facilities. Costs vary depending on the level of care required and the number of days needed to complete treatment. Through generous donors, Skyland Trail is also able to offer financial aid to clients and families who meet need-based criteria.
Skyland Trail provides up-front financial counseling for each client and family. Financial counselors help clients and families estimate their overall financial responsibility as part of the admissions process.
