Affordable Care

Janus is dedicated to providing caring, quality treatment at a reasonable cost.

We understand that your decision to come to Janus is a financial investment as well as a commitment of time and effort. We also know it may be one of most important investments of your life. The cost of treatment and other services at Janus is reasonably priced, and our Admissions Specialists will work with you to find a way to make it affordable.

Our Admissions process begins with a confidential, personalized drug and alcohol evaluation to determine specific treatment needs. Cost depends mainly on the level of care and length of time in treatment, as well as coverage by insurance and other resources.

Will my insurance cover the cost of treatment?

Many private insurance companies will cover the cost of treatment* (with the exception of DUI programs). Janus contracts with major insurance companies and many Employee Assistance Programs. Our staff will help you to maximize your benefits, work with your employee assistance professional to ensure your treatment coverage is fully utilized and assist you with disability benefits, if needed.

And unlike many providers, Janus will bill your insurance company directly. You won’t have to figure out and submit the insurance billing yourself.

*All services are based on individual insurance benefit coverage, authorization and eligibility.

Let us help you find a way to afford a healthy future

Meeting with a Janus Financial Advisor is part of our initial screening and Admissions process, to make sure you understand treatment fees and payment options. We are dedicated to making your experience at Janus as welcoming and supportive as possible, including guiding you through the financial process.

If I don’t have insurance, how will I pay for treatment?

Janus is strongly committed to keeping services reasonably priced for everyone and we also offer a sliding scale for self-pay clients. A Financial Advisor will be happy to talk with you about your options. Some of our programs are Medi-Cal certified. If you are currently enrolled in Medi-Cal or are Medi-Cal eligible, speak to our Financial Advisor for more information. If you are currently uninsured and not eligible for Medi-Cal, Covered California offers individual health insurance under the Affordable Care Act
