In Network with AAC

Using Aetna Insurance to Pay for a Drug Rehab Center

How can I use Aetna Insurance pay for my drug rehab?

Aetna offers open-access, copay-only, and high-deductible health insurance plans. All could help you to pay for drug rehab, but the coverage options and costs involved can vary dramatically. Use Aetna’s online tool to view coverage details, and contact customer service support online to ensure that the program you would like to use is covered by the plan you are enrolled in.

Founded in 1853 and active in all 50 states, Aetna’s network coverage includes 1.2 million healthcare professionals, almost 700,000 primary care doctors and specialist and over 5,700 hospitals.

The company has over 46 million members in its various health plans, including regular health insurance, dental insurance, and vision insurance.

AAC is in-network with Aetna at many facilities. Your addiction treatment can be free depending on your policy.

Aetna offers open-access plans, copay only plans, and high-deductible plans.

Open-access plans allow you to choose your doctors; they don’t require a referral, and they don’t require a primary care physician. Copay-only plans will guarantee that your costs after paying your deductible are only copays, with primary care physician visits and generic drugs covered before you hit your deductible. High-deductible plans offer preventative care services before the deductible is met, sometimes coverage through a primary care physician before the deductible is met (with copay), and the option of a health savings account. To view your plan’s details, you can log into the member website.

Aetna offers many local plans supported by the national network of providers to better support patients at the community level. For example, at American Addiction Centers, our facilities frequently provide care for patients of Schaller Anderson Aetna Better Health networks of New York and Ohio.
