Retreat Premier Addiction Treatment Centers Are Now In-Network with Magellan Healthcare and AvMed

Treatment facility now accepts new insurance plans

Palm Springs, Fla., December 7, 2017 – Retreat Premier Addiction Treatment Centers announced that it will accept AvMed health insurance (in its Florida facility) and Magellan Healthcare (including Health First) in its Pennsylvania and Florida facilities for treatment program services.

“Retreat’s partnership with Magellan Healthcare and Avmed ensures that even more individuals fighting addictions and their families can gain access to the lifesaving treatment we provide. With the overwhelming opioid crisis affecting our communities, adding Magellan and Avmed to our list of insurance carriers is more critical than ever,” stated Founder and CEO Peter Schorr, Retreat Premier Addiction Treatment Centers. “It’s our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to help our communities become healthier and safer.”

Magellan Healthcare and AvMed join Aetna, Blue Cross and other health insurance providers accepted by Retreat. Magellan Healthcare, which serves 36.1 million individuals, will allow Pennsylvanians with those plans to attend treatment. AvMed, one of Florida’s oldest and largest not-for-profit health plans, benefits Florida residents who need to access care at Retreat’s Palm Beach County location.

“Retreat will continue to seek out relationships with major insurers to expand our reach and achieve our mission to provide a compassionate and spiritual environment for recovery,” said Schorr.
