What Does Aetna Cover in Rehab?

Levels of Care Covered by Aetna

It is essential to consider what treatment is best for you in rehab and what Aetna does and does not cover. In most instances, most treatments offered at an Aetna-approved facility should be covered by your Aetna insurance, with you only paying the out-of-pocket costs. These types of treatment include mental, physical, and wellness rehabilitative offices.

When it comes to focusing on insurance coverage for individuals at an Aetna rehab, the most commonly covered mental health treatment in rehabilitation is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This is often the standard type of treatment for individuals in rehabilitation. This type of treatment teaches individuals to think about the future and let go of the past. Clients are encouraged to focus on what they can change instead of what they can’t. 

Other physical treatment options are also covered by Aetna Insurance when included as part of an addiction treatment program. For example, things like Yoga, acupuncture, and Reiki are often covered by insurance when they are included in an addiction treatment plan through an Aetna-approved facility. 

Lastly, therapies that improve overall client wellness are frequently included. For example, nutrition counselors and horse-riding treatment may be included in your programming.

Depending on your level of coverage, Aetna Insurance may cover different types of rehabilitation for substance abuse. One way to ensure your rehabilitation is by getting a diagnosis and treatment plan from your doctor. Choose an Aetna Health Care Provider and have them assess your substance abuse. Individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder can often get a recommendation for the type and level of addiction treatment necessary fr their success.

While your level of Aetna Insurance coverage does matter, the doctor’s opinion can also have a significant impact. Individuals with substance use diagnoses often require different levels of support provided by varying types of addiction treatment facilities. With a diagnosis from an Aetna Health Care provider, individuals have an easier chance of getting into adequate treatment for their addiction needs. 

Those suffering from the most intensive substance use disorders are diagnosed as severe and typically require inpatient residential treatment. These treatment facilities can be challenging to get into and costly, so by choosing an Aetna Insurance-covered rehab, you can lower your out-of-pocket costs. In addition, clients can access long-term constructive and complex treatment at an Aetna inpatient rehab, like Indah Recovery. These programs often allow clients to focus on their substance abuse problem and address concerns as a whole person. 

Individuals diagnosed with a moderate substance use disorder can benefit in a number of intensive settings. While some may require inpatient treatment, as recommended by a doctor, many individuals who struggle at this substance addiction level benefit from partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs. These programs are regulated and require clients to spend a large portion of their time working through their needs at the facility. However, they can go home for the evening and sleep overnight. Aetna-approved health care professionals often recommend this level of treatment if an individual has an intact support system that is willing to support and monitor the individual through this trying time. 

The lowest level of addiction treatment that Aetna Insurance covers is outpatient rehabilitation. At an outpatient facility, clients are coming and going frequently. They work independently with counselors and physicians and in small groups with others struggling through similar situations. This level of care is often the least expensive and the most widely covered rehabilitation option in Aetna Insurance.

What to Expect

Indah Recovery Can Help You

How to Find an Aetna Drug Rehab Facility

There are several ways to find Aetna rehab facilities. The first way is to access the Aetna website or call and speak and request a list of approved rehabilitation facilities. Clients who can access this list can choose from the list of comprehensive treatment programs available to Aetna clients in-network.

Aetna will verify an in-network approved rehab facility, and clients will be able to access the most treatment options through this authorized treatment center. Clients who choose to go out of network will have higher out-of-pocket costs and will have to have pre-approval. This is a lengthy process and can be challenging to manage for someone who is struggling with addiction. By choosing an Aetna-approved treatment center, clients will have a quicker turnaround time for access.

Another way to find an Aetna rehab facility is by contacting the facility of your choice and having them verify your insurance policy. This can be beneficial for clients as well. Finding a rehab facility that offers the types of treatment you believe will be most beneficial for you or your loved one can make a big difference in the outcome. In addition, by going through the rehab center to verify your insurance, you will have a more accurate out-of-pocket cost and be able to determine exactly what your Aetna insurance policy will cover at their facility. This process can be lengthy, but more beneficial as you will have direct information from rehab centers you would prefer to attend.
