Will Aetna Health Insurance Cover My Rehab?

Suffering from addiction, whether that be substance abuse or drugs, it can be difficult to overcome. Therefore, these individuals need the right form of support, care, and addiction treatment, such as inpatient or outpatient rehab, to fully rehabilitate themselves, and take back control over their lives. This is easier said than done, as addiction is the monster of all diseases, and let’s not mention expensive to treat. 

People who are going through things in general, often don’t like to admit that they have a problem and that they need help. This is called denial, a very common response and a warning sign, which indicates that someone may have an addiction problem. This starts a chain reaction, leading to why people tend to avoid the necessary treatment they need to reach sobriety. 

Unfortunately, many individuals who struggle, do not seek treatment for their addiction due to various reasons, some of which relate to embarrassment, finances, lack of support system, and the inability to find the right resources and treatment facility. The major reason for avoiding treatment goes to the financial burden. Those who don’t believe they can afford treatment have not been educated on their options. Truth is, there are always resources and help out there for everyone, no matter the circumstances. 

Addiction is not only difficult for the person going through it, but it affects everyone involved. On top of deciding to get help, and take the necessary steps to change your lifestyle, finding the right facility and the right form of treatment can be extremely stressful, in addition to worrying about finances, and how you will go about affording rehab. However, paying for rehab doesn’t have to be stressful or a burden. 

Crest View Recovery Center in Asheville, North Carolina makes the process easy for our patients suffering from addiction, by partnering with insurance companies like Aetna, who will help ease your stressors and pave the way for your upcoming journey.

Who is Aetna Healthcare?

Founded in 1853, Aetna Healthcare is an insurance company, which provides individuals, employers, health care professionals, with innovating benefits, products, and services. Aetna’s mission is to provide high-quality and improved access to health care services for all Americans worldwide.

As we are focusing on addiction treatment, Crest View works in conjunction with Aetna to identify a patient’s specific needs and concerns, regarding finding a nearby rehabilitation facility to treat drug and alcohol addictions, and what the best options available are for them to pay for treatment. Our insurance policies have different options for inpatient and outpatient rehab, as well as other services to help individuals on their path to recovery.  

Paying For Rehab With Aetna Drug Rehab Coverage

Aetna healthcare insurance clients may find that their insurance plan is designed to help cover some of the costs associated with addiction treatment, drug rehabilitation, including hospital detoxification, hospital-based alcohol, and drug rehabilitation treatment, residential rehabilitation treatment, individual therapy, outpatient counseling and more. Such coverage can allow Aetna clients to partake in needed drug treatment that they once otherwise thought to be cost-prohibitive.

In order to find the drug rehabilitation treatment plan that is designed to address the individual’s specific needs and that is covered by their Aetna health insurance plan, Crest View Recovery Center will work with your insurance policy to find the best treatment plan best suited to fully rehabilitate our patient’s to a healthy, productive life, while also ensuring that their Aetna insurance plan can help cover the costs of treatment, relieving financial burden, allowing them to focus on what is most important, becoming sober. 

Research shows, that the United States spends far more on health care than any other nation, which causes the quality of health care to suffer. In 2010, the Affordable Care Act was established, which mandated that all health insurance providers were required to offer at least partial coverage, especially for addiction treatment. 

This should give Aetna policyholders struggling with addiction peace of mind. At the very least, now you know that you won’t have to come entirely out of pocket to pay for rehab.

Since Aetna is one of the biggest insurance companies in our country, not all plans and policies are the same. Our admission staff at CVRC can help you verify your Aetna insurance to ensure that you get the most coverage possible. 

It is important to note, that to determine what your individual plan covers including coinsurance, copays, and deductibles, you will need to contact your insurance provider. With Aetna insurance, individuals may be covered for the following substance abuse treatments:

Sometimes facilities may make you pay a co-pay, meaning additional money out of pocket. However, because Crest View is a fully licensed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, and due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), patient’s in need of addiction treatment will not feel like they cannot obtain the help they need due to finances and be able to receive it at little to no additional costs. 

Why You Should Use Your Aetna Health Insurance at Our Rehab Facility

There is no doubt that rehabilitation centers are the best place for anyone suffering from addiction and substance abuse. It is only under the care of highly-qualified professionals that you will get the help that you need, which sets a person going through this predicament up for success. 

Much of the time, the issue has more to do with affording the treatment than it does with a person’s desire to get help. So you are wondering does Aetna cover drug rehab as part of my plan? Yes, Aetna health insurance will cover either a portion of treatment or all of it if you meet certain criteria outlined by your plan. 

In other words, the details of the amount paid by Aetna alcohol rehab coverage and drug rehab coverage are highly dependent upon a range of factors. Having Aetna drug rehab coverage means that the client can focus solely on getting the treatment he or she needs, and not on how the payments will be made. It’s no secret that drug and alcohol rehab is a tough journey, and success depends on giving 100 percent of your energy to the process. We know this, and therefore, remove the worries. 

Did you know that many insurance policies set a predetermined limit on substance abuse treatment rather than looking at the individual as a whole? Aetna is not one of these companies, as we focus on actually wanting people to find access to the high-quality health care that they need. Recognizing there are no one-size-fits-all plans for drug and alcohol abuse, Crest View Recovery Center, works with Aetna and vice versa, to help identify an individual’s needs, in order to find an addiction treatment solution.

While it’s true that most treatment facilities will accept your Aetna Health Insurance, realize that not all treatment centers are the same. Some rely strictly upon evidence-based therapies, while others believe only in alternative practices. Some centers only offer outpatient options, while others offer 24/7 residential treatment that provides a cold, institutionalized experience.

At Crest View, your recovery doesn’t come in a pre-packaged box. During our comprehensive admission process, called the intake or medically-assisted detox, we get to know each individual and their situation thoroughly. After learning about your family, addiction, and overall physical and mental health history, we establish a comprehensive treatment plan with your sobriety goals in mind. 

Since we understand that everyone and their situations are different, we focus on really getting to know our patients, by providing high-quality patient-centered care, creating the most effective individualized treatment methods tailored to each individual depending on their specific needs. It is important to note, that depending on your location and Aetna policy coverage, the costs associated with treatment programs may vary.

Reality therapy plays a huge role during our Rehab Treatment program. We don’t want to lock you away in a cold facility or throw you out in the wilderness. We believe in putting individuals in real-life situations, giving them the chance to develop effective coping techniques and real-world life skills. When combined with top-notch clinical therapy, our substance abuse programs give people the tools they need to succeed in post-treatment life.
