Lighthouse Recovery is a trusted provider of mental and behavioral health care and accepts most Aetna policies. This page will cover Aetna’s rehab coverage and how to use your Aetna health insurance to pay for treatment.
Does Aetna Cover Treatment for Alcohol and Drug Addiction?
In short, yes, Aetna health insurance may cover some or all of the cost of drug and alcohol addiction treatment in Dallas, TX. The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) requires insurance companies like Aetna to provide the same level of benefits for addiction and mental health treatment as they do for other types of medical care.
Although Drug and Alcohol Treatment must be covered under MHPAEA, the amount of coverage will depend on your exact plan.
How Much Does Addiction Treatment Cost if using my Aetna insurance?
The cost for Drug and Alcohol treatment will vary based on the specific care you need and the exact plan you have with Aetna. Some common costs you may encounter include:
Annual Deductible: The dollar amount you pay before your insurer begins covering costs. After the deductible is met, the plan begins covering some or all of the costs.
Coinsurance: The portion of medical costs you are responsible for paying after your deductible has been met. For example, if your coinsurance is 20%, you pay 20% of the cost and your insurance pays the other 80% up to the “out-of-pocket limit” (see below).
Out-of-pocket limit: This is the maximum amount you will pay for medical expenses in a year. This amount includes deductibles, coinsurance, and copays. Once you have reached your out-of-pocket limit, your insurance will pay for any medical costs for the remainder of the year.
Copayments: A flat fee you pay per session of treatment (per group session for example).
