Published on April 12th, 2014

An addiction rehabilitation center is the best place for an drug addict or alcoholic to go for help getting sober. Once getting past the initial step of admitting you have a problem and reaching out for help the next step is figuring out how to pay for your treatment. The cost of your treatment may outweigh your financial means, as it does for many people. If you are an Aetna member, some or all of your health care costs will be covered by your insurance provider, making it possible for you to get the help you need with little to no money out of pocket.

How Much of My Treatment will Aetna Cover?

The amount Aetna will cover of your drug and alcohol treatment will vary by the treatment itself and the policy you hold. Aetna has a large list of in-network treatment facilities available to you that will insure you pay little to no money out of pocket. The treatment facility you choose will walk you through the insurance approval process to help relieve any burdens this process may put on you during this difficult time.

Co-pays and Deductibles

The copay or deductible amount you are required to pay will vary on your policy itself. Many Aetna plans require a deductible to be met before they will begin covering medical costs, this can be up to $3,000 yearly. Outpatient services often require a copay of anywhere from $5 to $75 depending on the policy.

Get The Help You Need

Aetna insurance will work with you to be sure you get the help you need. This destructive disease, addiction, will no longer hinder your life. With the help of Aetna and your choice treatment facility you will be able to create a sober and more fulfilling life for yourself.
