Do I Need Treatment for Alcohol Addiction?
According to the National Library of Medicine, alcoholism is an extremely dangerous disease that causes a number of issues, including:
- Loss of control
- Physical dependence
- Problems at work, home, and school
- Legal and financial issues
- Health risks that can sometimes be deadly
Attempting to quit one’s alcohol use when dependent is also dangerous, as withdrawal can cause severe and even deadly symptoms that require hospitalization. And without the skills learned in a professional rehab program, it is almost impossible for an individual to quit their dangerous abuse of alcohol and avoid relapse.
Can Aetna Help Cover My Treatment Costs?
Aetna Insurance can help cover the cost of your rehab program, either fully or in part. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, part of the Affordable Care Act signed into law in 2010 designates “mental and/or substance use disorders as an ‘essential health benefit’ that must be covered” by one’s insurance plan. The exact amount of your coverage depends on your specific situation as well as the program you choose.
What Types of Rehab Programs Will Aetna Cover?
Either in full or in part, Aetna will cover treatment in the following types of rehab programs:
- Inpatient and outpatient facilities
- Luxury or private facilities
- Local or out-of-state facilities
- 30, 60, and 90-day programs
In some situations, Aetna will help pay for programs that last longer than the typical 90-day period, but it is important to discuss this with the specific facility of your choice. Aetna will cover at least some part of almost any rehab program that will work with the company, and when choosing a specific facility, it is necessary to consider all of the treatment options and accommodations necessary to you as well as any additional needs you may have, even if these do not directly relate to your substance use disorder.
How Can I Find Out What Aetna Will Cover?
The first step is to consider what type of rehab program you will require in order to ensure you are able to recover from your alcohol addiction as safely as possible. You may need to attend inpatient or residential care, especially if you have exhibited symptoms of severe alcohol withdrawal, also known as delirium tremens. Once you do so, you can find out how much of your treatment Aetna will cover based on the particular facility you choose and your personal insurance plan.
Call 800-481-6320 now to find rehab centers that provide reliable treatment to those struggling with alcohol use disorders and to find out how much of your program Aetna will help cover. It’s time to begin your recovery now and to start living a better life.
