Many Aetna insurance plans offer coverage for substance abuse treatment, as they would for any other medical condition. Some of the treatments that may be covered under these health plans include outpatient care, residential programs, detoxification, and aftercare planning services. What exactly will be covered for you or your loved one depends on the specifics of the policy. Additionally, other factors such as the type of care provided, the length of the patient’s stay, and whether the provider is considered in-network help determine how much is covered. Working with Vanguard ensures that individuals seeking treatment can verify their benefits and understand what we can do to help them.
In general, Aetna covers most outpatient treatments for substance abuse and addiction. These include therapy and counseling. Those who require ongoing counseling or mental health services to maintain sobriety after completing the continuum of care may be covered up to a certain amount per session, as well. Aetna also provides coverage in many cases for partial hospitalization programs for those who require more than weekly therapy sessions but don’t need to be kept in a residential setting.
In this type of substance abuse treatment program, patients receive support for addiction or alcoholism on an outpatient basis, meaning they do not require 24-hour care. Among the many services provided under this model include individual and group therapy, educational workshops, and skill-building classes. In addition, medical staff work with those receiving care to determine if medication is necessary.
Under a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), patients receive a high level of structured care on a part-time basis. Therapy and medical monitoring are provided on a schedule that typically lasts six hours per day, five days a week. This type of program is ideal for patients who are transitioning out of inpatient or residential settings. Those already in a stable living environment can find the intensive support they need to continue their recovery process through PHP.
In this intensive, full-time setting, patients live in a community that offers around-the-clock care and supervision to support their treatment. Here, individuals typically receive one-on-one and group counseling, education about recovery, life skills training, and other therapeutic modalities. They also may receive medical detoxification if deemed necessary. Treatments are tailored to each patient’s specific needs, making this one of the best environments for addressing any co-existing mental health conditions.
It is difficult to say with certainty how much our services will cost before we thoroughly review your insurance plan. What you pay out of pocket will depend on the treatment plan selected as well as the extent of your coverage. Our office will contact Aetna to inquire about your situation and discuss with you any additional payments that need to be made so you always know what to expect.
