Does Aetna Cover Rehab in California?

Aetna insurance may be able to cover all or at least part of the cost of rehab for drug and alcohol abuse in California. This will depend on your health plan and the treatment provider you choose. Aetna health insurance may partially cover detox, inpatient or residential rehabilitation, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient treatment.

Sadly, there were 10,162 reported drug overdose deaths in California from May 2020 to May 2021.1 If you or a family member has a problem with addiction, a rehab facility can provide you with the support you need to become sober. American Addiction Centers (AAC) has a local treatment center, Laguna Treatment Hospital, and it is in-network with Aetna in California. Check your level of coverage with Aetna to find out what you will be covered for in terms of substance abuse treatment.

What Substance Abuse Treatment Does Aetna Insurance Cover?

Aetna insurance may be able to cover substance use disorder (SUD) treatment in the state of California. Depending on your plan, insurance may cover at least part of the cost of:

  • Detoxification – A professional detox program will use interventions, such as medications and other therapies. This medically supervised process safely manages withdrawal symptoms while the body rids itself of harmful substances.
  • Residential or Inpatient Treatment Near Me – These programs are designed to help those with serious drug or alcohol dependencies, as they will live at the rehab facility full-time and receive care from addiction professionals. A benefit of this form of treatment is that it allows individuals to have some distance from their home environments so they can focus entirely on their sobriety.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – An individual will receive treatment, such as group therapy or individual counseling, for a specific number of hours per week at a treatment facility. If you enroll in an IOP, you will spend more time in treatment compared to a standard outpatient program.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – Referred to as day treatment, PHPs are ideal for those who do not need supervision 24/7 but still require medical or mental health support. Typically, these programs provide at least 20 hours of treatment each week.

Does Aetna California Cover Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment?

Aetna may cover co-occurring (dual diagnosis) disorder treatment in California, treatment of all existing mental health conditions as well as addiction, under mental or behavioral health services. Depending on your level of coverage, mental health treatments may at least be partially covered.

It is important to seek treatment that will address your mental health conditions and substance use disorder (SUD) simultaneously. Laguna Treatment Hospital is in-network with Aetna in CA and offers treatment for a co-occurring or dual diagnosis.
