When we hit “rock bottom,” it can be difficult on what the next steps can be. We worry about how our lives will change without drugs or alcohol there. Will we be able to handle it? Will we relapse back into our addiction? What will our friends and family think?
We are also worried about the cost of treatment. A quick online search shows that there are some staggering prices listed for drug and alcohol rehab. It’s common to see figures such as $3,000, $5,000 or even $25,000 for even a short stay in rehab.
The prices alone can scare us off from getting the help we need. Many who suffer from alcohol and drug addiction don’t get the help they need. Don’t become part of that statistic.
Price does not have to be the reason you don’t get treatment. There are numerous options that can help offset the cost of rehab. That includes health insurance. Many people use their health insurance, such as Aetna, to pay for treatment programs.
Here is what you need to know about using Aetna Insurance for rehab.
You Are Not Alone
Currently, more than 20 million Americans suffer from a substance abuse disorder, according to federal data. That includes those suffering from alcohol use, or alcoholism, and those with drug addiction. For some it’s both. Don’t feel like you are alone in your situation.
There are also plenty of people out there that want you to get better and provide the support to help on the road to sobriety. There are programs to help workers and people cover the cost of that help. That includes Aetna insurance, which can provide coverage for people who have the plan.
Health insurance can help pay for rehab, so don’t feel the cost makes getting help out of your reach.
Using Aetna For Rehab
Aetna offers various help for drug or alcohol rehab. The provider can help offset the cost of rehab for people with health insurance. However, the exact amount can vary depending on the plan. The specific plan could limit what is covered and where. So, it is important to know what your coverage options entail before choosing a treatment option.
You can reach out to your plan’s provider or a facility to find out how much Aetna insurance will cover for drug or alcohol rehab. They can also help direct you to centers that take Aetna health insurance.
