Choosing the right drug and alcohol rehab facility for you can be challenging. Not only do you have to consider the type of treatment you need, whether you will stay close to home or attend a rehab in another area, and how your day-to-day affairs will be handled if you go to inpatient treatment, but you also have to consider the cost and whether your medical insurance policy will cover any of it.

Overview of Aetna Insurance
Aetna is a very well-known and reputable insurance provider that has about 46 million members across the U.S. Aetna provides members with health insurance coverage as well as behavioral health benefits. Drug and alcohol addiction treatment fall under the behavioral health umbrella.
Aetna insurance is active in all 50 states and has been in existence since 1850. It has more than 34,000 employees and more than 470,000 medical providers in its network. The company offers health insurance, dental insurance, and vision insurance.
As an addiction treatment facility that is in-network with Aetna, Rally Point accepts a huge number of Aetna insurance plans. If you are unsure whether your Aetna insurance provides coverage for drug or alcohol addiction treatment, we can help you determine if your plan is accepted. You can also call Aetna directly to see exactly what your plan covers.
Aetna Coverage for Specific Addictions
Aetna offers substance abuse disorder treatment for alcohol and all addictive drugs, prescription and illegal. The company covers a variety of different types of treatments that are provided by facilities that have been carefully screened and found to deliver high-quality care and sufficient follow-up care. Exactly what type of treatment programs Aetna will cover and to what extent depends on your specific insurance plan and benefits. Some plans require that you have a medical assessment before they will provide the coverage you need for addiction treatment. This is typically required when you need more intensive treatment like inpatient rehab.
The types of substance abuse treatments that are usually covered by Aetna (fully or partially) include the following:
- Detox treatment
- Individual, family, and group therapy
- Drug testing
- Co-occurring disorders and mental health programs
Inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment may also be covered by Aetna plans, as well as some types of medication-assisted therapy. You will need to check your individual policy to see what is covered for you.
Length and Depth of Coverage
Deciding which addiction treatment program you need is the first step to getting help. Then you will need to find out whether your Aetna insurance plan will cover your choice, and to what extent. The length of time that people attend treatment varies on the person and his or her specific circumstances.
Aetna approaches each case on an individual basis, rather than approving a set number of days that you can be in treatment. Speaking to an Aetna representative will help you gain insight into what expectations you can have regarding your coverage.
Treatment Services Covered by Aetna
Aetna covers various types of addiction treatment services that range in intensity. The programs typically fall into either inpatient or outpatient treatment.
This is the most intensive type of drug and alcohol treatment. It requires that you live at the rehab facility for a period of time. While there, you will receive around the clock care, support, medication management, mental health diagnosis and treatment (if applicable), various types of therapies, coping skills, addiction education, 12-step meetings, relapse prevention, and much more.
Outpatient treatments are a step down from inpatient programs and they allow more freedom for clients. Outpatient programs allow individuals to incorporate treatment into their everyday lives around things like work, school, and family responsibilities. Many of the same services offered in inpatient programs are offered in outpatient treatment on a less intensive basis.
