Aetna Mental Health Coverage

The Affordable Care Act made it a requirement for insurance plans sold via the Health Insurance Marketplace to cover 10 essential benefits. One of those benefits is mental health care, including treatment for substance use disorders. Due to this requirement, many major insurance carriers, including Aetna Inc., provide some type of mental health coverage to plan members.

Residential Mental Health Benefits

Aetna Insurance

Behavioral Health Centers offer residential treatment programs for a variety of mental health disorders, including addiction, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, body dysmorphic disorder and panic disorder. These behavioral health conditions cause different symptoms, but they all have the potential to interfere with your personal relationships or make it more difficult to do the things you love.

Depending on what mental health condition you have and what kind of help you need, you may benefit from one of the following services:

  • Drug and alcohol detox
  • Inpatient addiction treatment
  • Residential mental health treatment
  • Behavioral health treatment specifically for veterans

Drug and Alcohol Detox

When you stop using drugs or alcohol, your body goes through a detox process that may take several days. In some people, this process causes nausea, vomiting, headaches and other symptoms. It’s safer to go through withdrawal under the supervision of experienced mental health providers, so Behavioral Health Centers offers a drug and alcohol detox program. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, detox is covered under all ACA-compliant health insurance plans. That means Aetna insurance provides at least some level of coverage for drug and alcohol detox.

Behavioral Health Treatment for Veterans

Veterans are more likely than members of the general population to develop substance use disorders. The risk is especially high for veterans who participated in active combat or witnessed violence while serving in the Armed Forces. Veterans also have an increased risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which may cause flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety and other symptoms that interfere with your ability to work, go to school or enjoy your hobbies.

To address these unique risk factors, Behavioral Health Centers offers a recovery program specifically for veterans. As part of this program, you’ll have access to therapy, medications and other services to help you cope with your trauma and recover from PTSD or addiction. Aetna Inc. covers a wide range of behavioral health services, making it easier to access residential care.

Residential Mental Health Services

If you have a moderate to severe mental health condition, it’s helpful to seek residential care. Residential treatment gives you an opportunity to get away from the stresses of daily life and focus on your recovery. We work with your health insurance company to determine how many days of inpatient mental health care are covered and estimate how much you’ll have to pay out of pocket. If your Aetna insurance plan has coverage limits, we’ll make sure you understand what those limits are and how they might affect your care.

Whether you’re having a mental health crisis or need a little help recovering from a mental health disorder in a supportive environment, it’s important to complete a customized treatment plan. While you’re at Behavioral Health Centers, you have access to the following services:

  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Support groups
  • Medications
  • Therapeutic activities

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

For many people with substance use disorders, residential addiction treatment is more effective than outpatient care. This is because addiction involves many physical, psychological and environmental factors. It’s difficult to recover from addiction if you live with people who drink or use drugs, have a high level of stress at work or struggle with dysfunctional family dynamics at home. If you have health insurance through Aetna Inc., we’ll verify your benefits and make sure you understand your options for covering any remaining balance.

Depending on your needs, your inpatient rehab program may include the following:

Coverage for Outpatient Mental Health Services

Once you complete your residential treatment, it’s important to receive follow-up care to ensure you stay on track. Our aftercare program includes regular assessments, community support and other services customized to your needs. We also assess your risk of relapse and provide training to help you manage stress without relapsing. Overall, aftercare makes it easier to transition from residential treatment back to your regular environment.
