Finding Insurance


Perhaps you’ve decided it’s time to seek out solutions for your struggle with addiction, but you’re anxious about affording treatment, rehab, or medication. Or maybe you haven’t yet sought treatment because you’re worried that you’ll end up overwhelmed by bills or debt. If you’re a member of an Aetna health plan, you’re already on the right track toward dealing with and ultimately moving beyond your struggles with addiction. In fact, your Aetna health plan includes both resources for locating treatment as well as coverage for the cost of many forms of rehab including inpatient and outpatient programs, therapy, and medication.

What Does My Plan Cover?

With 36 million plan members, Aetna is the third largest health insurance provider in the U.S. Their plans cover some or all of the cost of detox, rehabilitation programs (including inpatient, residential, or outpatient, depending on your needs and coverage), and continuing care provided by an approved center. If necessary, your plan should also assist you in paying for psychotherapy and medications that will help you successfully withdraw. As a member of an Aetna health plan, you have access to benefits that will cover some if not all of the cost of treatment for addiction. It’s important to understand that your exact benefits will depend on your plan, as well as your diagnosed medical needs. In many cases, you’ll begin the treatment process by visiting a provider in your Aetna coverage network who can refer you to a treatment program that’s also in ­ network.


Contacting Aetna to Begin Your Recovery

The specifics of your Aetna health plan coverage including the treatment centers that will accept your insurance, and the level of treatment that will be covered depend on several factors that can only be determined by Aetna. For that reason, if you or your loved one is a member of an Aetna health plan, you may find it easiest to begin the process of seeking treatment for your addiction by calling Aetna directly. They’ll be able to assist you in finding specialists and treatment programs that are covered by your Aetna plan treatment that will ultimately help you or your loved one to finally move past the struggle with addiction.
