Using Your Insurance Plan to Pay for Your Treatment Program
Most individuals who use their insurance plans to help them pay for recovery in a rehab center are able to experience less of a financial burden when they seek treatment. They are also usually able to finance any additional costs their insurance plan doesn’t cover, paying for some of it up front and then making payments over time. This helps many people seek the help they need without having to be concerned about the high costs of addiction treatment.
You may have gotten your Aetna insurance plan through a number of different channels. If you have Aetna through your employer, there is a good chance that your policy will pay for at least part of your recovery needs. However, if you’ve purchased your plan independently or through the Healthcare Marketplace, you are even more likely to be able to seek treatment with your coverage.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Affordable Care Act of 2010 made “prevention, early intervention, and treatment of mental and/or substance use disorders” essential health benefits, meaning they must be covered by insurance plans sold through the Healthcare Marketplace.
Does Aetna Cover Methadone Maintenance?
Aetna does cover medication maintenance for heroin and other types of opioid addiction syndromes. The treatment itself is extremely beneficial to many opioid addicts, as it allows them to live their lives and avoid substance abuse while being maintained on the drug. According to Harvard Medical School, “More than 100,000 American addicts” were being maintained on methadone in 2004. Many of these individuals were able to do so through their insurance programs.
