Does My Doctor Have to Tell Insurance About My Drug Usage?
Unfortunately, TeenHealthFX staff are not insurance experts. In addition, it is hard to say whether or not your doctor needs to give this information to your insurance company. We strongly recommend having an open and honest conversation with your doctor. It is not only necessary to have a trusting relationship with your doctor but is also equally important for your doctor to know your drug use history in order to look for any other issues that come up and provide the right treatment. This is very important in order to get all the help that you need to get better.
