Does Tufts cover substance abuse recovery treatment?

Most Tufts plans offer at least some level of coverage for substance abuse treatment that’s medically necessary. But the percentage that Tufts pays versus the percentage that you have to pay out-of-pocket for this type of treatment depends on the plan that you have.

For example, if you’ve paid to get a high-tier Tufts plan, then you may only have to pay a small co-pay to get the substance abuse treatment that you want. But if your plan is a more affordable option, then you may have to pay a higher percentage of your treatment costs out-of-pocket.
