One of the many questions that people with drug or alcohol addiction face when considering substance abuse treatment is how their time in drug rehab will affect their family financially. You can expect to have primary care physician visits and generic drugs covered, but can you expect your insurance provider to cover care for substance use disorders at addiction treatment centers?
And though there are many nuances to the question of what you can expect from your insurance provider when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction treatment, we’d like to start with the good news that, due to the Affordable Care Act, insurance providers are required to provide insurance coverage for drug and alcohol treatment programs.
Depending on your insurance company, you may also be able to use money set aside in a health savings account to pay for treatment at American addiction centers. However, while health insurance plans are required to provide some insurance coverage for drug and alcohol rehab, coverage may not necessarily be complete, meaning that sometimes even patients with insurance pay some treatment costs themselves.
Additionally, based on your insurance provider and specific insurance policy, out of network providers may incur extra fees. Or, initial substance abuse treatments may be covered but additional stints in drug and alcohol rehab after a relapse may not.
So, while the short answer to whether AETNA insurance policies cover addiction treatment is yes, you may still encounter some complexities when trying to use AETNA health insurance to pay for your own or a loved one’s drug rehab.
More specifically, AETNA covers drug rehab at Reco Intensive, meaning AETNA health insurance is accepted by our addiction treatment program, which you can find out more about below. You can thus use AETNA rehab coverage to help cover the cost of drug rehab at our treatment facility.
However, because specific AETNA benefits can differ depending on your specific AETNA insurance policy, you will probably have to contact your insurance carrier directly to get more specific details about your AETNA drug rehab coverage.
Alternatively, if you are planning to seek treatment at Reco Intensive, you can prepare for the treatment process by filling out this insurance verification form. Then, representatives of our treatment programs will guide you through the process of verifying your AETNA drug rehab coverage.
Along with AETNA insurance, Reco Intensive is proud to work with many insurance companies to help our rehab centers’ patients get the substance abuse treatment options they need.
At the above link, you will also find an extensive list of insurance providers our outpatient rehab program has worked with. If you do not have AETNA insurance coverage, feel free to see if your health insurance company is on the list or contact our representatives for more information.
Now that you know that you can expect that AETNA cover time at our treatment centers, it may also be worth a reminder that AETNA coverage may also include vision insurance, dental insurance, and preventative care services as well as regular health insurance.
If you do not currently have health insurance, you’ll also be happy to know that you still have a wide variety of options when seeking out inpatient treatment or outpatient services at American addiction centers. Substance treatment facilities frequently provide care to low income patients on a sliding scale or offer customized payment plans to suit the needs of their substance abuse clients.
Reco Intensive is a drug addiction treatment provider known as one of the best American addiction centers. Location in scenic Delray Beach, Florida also sets our treatment centers apart. Treatment locations can actually matter a great deal when it comes to a patient’s experience, and the consistently favorable climate allows for a wide variety of outdoor activities offered as part of our holistic programming.
Our outpatient services include partial hospitalization programs, which offer patients with substance use disorder outpatient treatment designed to be similarly immersive to inpatient treatment. We also offer dual diagnosis treatment, mental health care focused on preventing future drug abuse by addressing underlying mental health conditions.
Though our treatment program is centered around individual therapy, our program also include a variety of group therapy programs, giving our clients a chance to connect to one another as they process their past traumas. We also boast an active alumni community that comes together for weekly meetings as well as special events and retreats.
Our program also incorporates medication assisted treatment for certain patients for whom it is applicable. The medication Vivitrol helps patients recovering from certain addictions to achieve abstinence by reducing their drug cravings and blocking pleasurable effects of opiate drugs and some of the pleasurable effects of alcohol, allowing them to focus on the emotional aspects of their recovery.
