We offer a comprehensive drug and alcohol addiction treatment program in California that addresses all aspects of our client’s physical and emotional needs – including co-occurring mental health disorders like depression or anxiety.

A large barrier that prevents individuals from attending substance abuse treatments isn’t the person’s desire to recover, but the costs associated with rehab centers in California. Based on your specific Aetna insurance policy, anywhere from a portion to the entire cost of treatment could be covered. Here’s what you need to do to find out:

Aetna Coverage Confirmation For Substance Abuse Treatment

Although Ranch Creek Recovery accepts Aetna as an insurance provider, you will still need to call and verify your Aetna coverage. Every policy is different which means there is still a chance your coverage may be denied. You can start by reviewing your specific benefits guide. Then, reach out to your Aetna insurance representative if you have any questions or need more information.

Using Your Aetna Insurance to Access Quality Care at Substance Abuse Treatment Centers

The first step in utilizing your Aetna insurance coverage for drug rehab at Ranch Creek Recovery is understanding your policy. Aetna offers a variety of Aetna insurance policies, including HMOs, PPOs, and EPOs, each with different levels of coverage and requirements for accessing care. It’s essential to familiarize yourself with your plan’s benefits and limitations to determine the extent of coverage available for addiction treatment services.

Aetna’s Substance Use Disorder Treatment Coverage

Most Aetna plans include coverage for substance abuse treatment, with varying degrees of coverage based on the plan’s specific details. Some of the services typically covered include:

  • Detoxification: Aetna may cover medically supervised detox programs, helping clients safely and comfortably withdraw from substances while minimizing potential complications.

  • Inpatient Treatment: Many Aetna plans provide coverage for residential addiction treatment programs, offering clients round-the-clock support, high-end rehab facilities and a structured environment for recovery.

  • Medication-assisted treatment: Aetna is an insurance provider that also covers MAT. MAT combines behavioral therapies with medications to help individuals recover from addiction.

  • Outpatient Treatment: Aetna often covers outpatient programs such as Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP), which provide a more flexible treatment option for individuals with work or family obligations.

  • Mental Health Counseling: Aetna recognizes the importance of addressing co-occurring mental health disorders and typically covers individual and group therapy sessions.

Navigating the Insurance Verification and Approval Process

To make the insurance verification and approval process as smooth as possible, follow these steps:

  1. Contact Ranch Creek Recovery: Our admissions team can help guide you through the process and collect the necessary information to verify what Aetna and other insurance companies can cover.

  2. Verify Coverage with Aetna: Reach out to your Aetna insurance representative to confirm your specific plan’s coverage for addiction treatment services. Be prepared to provide details about Ranch Creek Recovery’s program and your treatment needs, whether it is alcohol rehab or drug and mental health disorder treatment.

  3. Pre-Authorization: Some insurance plans may require pre-authorization for addiction treatment services. If this applies to your policy, work with your insurance representative and Ranch Creek Recovery to complete the necessary steps for approval.

Options for Denied Coverage or Out-of-Pocket Expenses

What happens if your coverage is denied? You will still have the opportunity to appeal. This is usually done by writing an appeals letter. Make sure you follow up with Aetna and complete the appeals procedure correctly to cover the cost of your inpatient and outpatient rehab.
