Aetna Healthcare

Aetna Healthcare for Addiction Treatment Services

At Immersion Recovery Center our goal is to provide you with hope, first and foremost. Although all may seem lost at this trying time, recovery is still possible for everyone, even the family of those suffering from drug and/or alcohol abuse. We understand that worrying about the financial commitment involved in receiving treatment can be a barrier to getting started, so Immersion Recovery Center works closely with most major insurers, including Aetna, to ease the financial burden of detoxification, inpatient or outpatient therapy, and aftercare services. Verifying your benefits is as simple as making a phone call.

A subsidiary of CVS Health, Aetna medically insures over 22 million Americans, and offers coverage for mental health services and substance abuse treatment through Aetna’s Behavioral Health Network. Behavioral Health benefits cover a range of services related to mental health and the mind-body connection. In addition to substance abuse and recovery, your Aetna plan may cover family and relationship therapy, or treatment for personal issues such as depression, stress and anxiety. At Immersion Recovery, our approach goes far beyond detoxification, and your Aetna health plan will be there with you each step of the way.

Detoxifying from alcohol and/or drug abuse is a medically necessary treatment that should only be done under the care of a medical professional. Your Aetna health insurance plan may contribute to covering costs associated with detoxification and related medications needed. All individual health insurance marketplace plans, as well as some employer-based plans offer coverage for substance abuse detoxification. For plans that do, under law, your medically managed detox benefit limits are equal to those you receive for any other hospitalization or medical care. Our clinical team often uses pharmaceuticals to minimize withdrawal symptoms and ease you into detoxification, and these medications too may be covered under your Aetna health insurance plan.

For patients who have safely detoxified from alcohol and/or drugs, Immersion Recovery’s treatment plans continue with inpatient rehabilitation services, or outpatient rehabilitation programs. Each program blends a 12-step approach based on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, with cognitive behavioral therapy and complementary modalities, including family and individual counseling. These therapies are potentially included among your Aetna benefits. Aetna’s behavioral health program covers not only substance abuse recovery services and counseling, but benefits extend to counseling for several co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger management, grief and loss, post-traumatic stress, and relationship and family issues. By providing a realistic and practical 12-step approach, Immersion Recovery Center releases you from a devastating cycle of substance relapse. Transformation occurs as you come face-to-face with your frailties through therapy and trust us to help you navigate the healing process.

Should you choose to participate in our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or aftercare, your Aetna plan may follow you, easing the financial burden of aftercare placement in a recovery home, or ongoing therapeutic services. We work with a trusted network of recovery homes in the area and beyond and will work closely with you to help you maximize your health insurance benefits. Many sober living homes offer access to therapeutic services that potentially fall within the benefits of your Aetna health insurance plan.

Specific limits to benefits, or your particular out-of-pocket costs, are related to the type of Aetna plan you have, your deductible, copayment or coinsurance amounts, and the Immersion Recovery programs in which you participate. Your particular treatment plan may require preauthorization or a referral from your primary care provider before Aetna will approve coverage. If this is the case, you can be rest assured that we will work closely with you to make the necessary arrangements and to maximize your Aetna health plan’s benefits.
