Aetna Insurance For Mental Health Treatment

Aetna is mental health treatment insurance provider that offers a variety of policies such as individual plans, business plans, Medicare, and Medicaid. Regardless of your Aetna plan, they will pay all or part of your mental health care cost. The Affordable Care Act requires Aetna and other health insurance providers to pay for treatment for mental illnesses such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. Real Deal helps you or your loved ones to get started with your rehabilitation journey!

Understanding Your Aetna Benefits

Dealing with an insurance company can be confusing. However, Aetna and Real Deal want to streamline the process so you can focus on what matters. Your Aetna treatment plan will be carefully reviewed to see if mental health services are covered. To help you get started on your road to recovery, we can also find out what medical care is covered.

From a legal point of view, mental health issues are handled like any other issue. Your insurance company cannot refuse to pay for treating any diagnosed medical condition just because you have a mental illness. Aetna will pay for your care as long as the provider is online. Mental and behavioral health is considered a sort of specialty therapy in most Aetna plans. This means mental health insurance can be a bit more expensive than a regular exam, but you still get some financial help.

What Types of Treatment Services Does Aetna Insurance Cover?

Below are some of the potential benefits of Aetna health insurance:

Detoxification: Withdrawal from drugs and alcohol can sometimes be treated on an outpatient basis. Depending on the substance, degree of abuse, frequency of abuse, and the individual’s mental health, the cost of inpatient detoxification may be reimbursed.

Inpatient rehabilitation Hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and drug treatment centers offer inpatient programs. Before including them in their networks, Aetna assesses the quality of the wastewater treatment plant. It is recommended to use those who are online because they are covered.

Partial Hospital treatment: Although it provides a higher level of care than outpatient therapy, this type of treatment is less intrusive than inpatient rehab. Recovering addicts attend 4-8 hours of programs each day and then transition to a sober lifestyle at night.

Intensive outpatient treatment: IOPs hold meetings several days a week, usually at night or at a time convenient for members. These programs promote a speedy recovery as participants cope with stresses and triggers.

Continuing care programs: Aetna’s rehabilitation centers provide ongoing care. The risk of relapse is reduced by implementing this additional support and referral.

Aetna Insurance Coverage for Residential Mental Health Treatment

The Aetna plan you choose will ultimately determine how much of your mental health care costs you will have to pay out of your pocket. The price will vary depending on the treatments you need, the expected length of your stay at our facility, and any prescription medications you may be advised to take both during and after your treatment.

The 80/60 principle is at the heart of Aetna’s coverage plans. Aetna plans cover 80% of the total cost of therapy and hospital/facility stays for network healthcare professionals. This share will be reduced to 60% of the coverage plan for out-of-network providers. You will ultimately be responsible for paying 40% of the total cost of your stay at one of our facilities as none of Real Deal’s facilities to have network providers.

Real Deal staff encourages you to take this into account when exploring your options. Luckily we are fully in-network with Aetna, so if your deductible is met, there will be no cost!
