Overview of Aetna & Addiction Treatment

Aetna is a health insurance provider with a wide range of insurance plans for nearly 40 million customers. Aetna works with 1.2 million professionals and another 700,000 specialists and doctors, offering medical services and addiction treatment. 


If you have Aetna health insurance, you might be able to apply your insurance benefits to things like an Aetna drug and alcohol rehab. Some Aetna rehab facilities are covered entirely, and others are only partially covered by your insurance plan.


The amount of Aetna drug coverage you can receive is based on things like:

  • Inpatient versus outpatient rehab, though Aetna insurance policies usually cover either
  • The dollar amount covered by your policy
  • The location of your rehab centers 
  • The level of care within your program
  • How long have you received treatment


The fastest way to determine whether you have Aetna insurance alcohol rehab coverage is to call their insurance helpline to verify your plan or reach out to Prevail Recovery Center directly. We can verify whether our center accepts Aetna and to what degree on your behalf.

Aetna-Covered Addiction Treatment

Aetna Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Aetna insurance drug and alcohol rehab looks different for many people. In general, this health insurance provider has a list of approved facilities, and these are considered facilities within the network. Such facilities offer a range of services that might fit your needs, such as inpatient or outpatient services. When you contact different rehab centers, they can tell you whether they accept Aetna insurance plans and whether they are one of those approved facilities. Alternatively, you can contact your insurance provider directly for a list of approved facilities.


Different rehab centers can help you get the type of service that is best suited for your situation. For example, Aetna rehab facilities might provide outpatient rehab for someone who has already completed an inpatient program or for someone whose addiction is not severe enough that they can’t live at home during their recovery. Alternatively, they might offer inpatient rehab, partial hospitalization, or initial detoxification for more dangerous addictions like alcoholism. Aetna alcohol treatment might include initial detox. Aetna drug coverage may help for medications to help manage withdrawal symptoms.

Does Aetna Insurance Cover Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Aetna drug and alcohol rehab coverage will vary from one policy to the next because Aetna offers so many tiered plans. However, most Aetna insurance policies cover addiction treatment via in-network and out-of-network centers. In-network centers are Aetna rehab facilities working directly with the insurance company. Out-of-network rehab centers covered by Aetna are centers that might be in your area or provide different modalities but are still at least partially covered. Depending on the policy you have with Aetna, the company may cover all or part of your addiction treatment. 



Depending on your situation, you might need an initial medically supervised detox plan, especially for things like alcohol abuse. Aetna insurance might cover this depending on the plan you have.



Once you complete your initial detox, you can start with a residential or inpatient program at an approved facility. With these programs, you stay at the facility full time, usually for 30-day increments, so that you can have a 30-day, 60 day, or 90-day program.



After completing an inpatient program or for those who do not need one because they have a stable home life with a low risk of relapse, you can choose outpatient programs where you divide your time between your regular life and different therapies. Outpatient programs in Florida can last anywhere from a couple of weeks through a few months, depending on your situation.

Our Staff Can Help

What Can I Do If My Aetna Policy Doesn’t Cover the Total Cost of Rehab?

If you find out that your Aetna insurance policy only covers part of the cost, our team will speak with you about the details of your plan, what is already covered, and what alternatives you have for the remaining balance, such as employee covered options, federal benefits for rehab, or affordable out of pocket payment plans. 


We appreciate that getting help can be costly for some, which is why we work hard to help you identify the alternatives if insurance isn’t enough.

What is Included in Aetna Insurance Programs?

Aetna Insurance company works hard to make sure you get the treatment you need before problems get worse. That is why a big part of their company policy is implementing screening programs. The screening programs allow doctors to evaluate situations where things like alcoholism might exist during part of your regular Healthcare exams. Suppose you believe you have an addiction and are struggling to get help. In that case, Aetna Insurance will still verify your situation with their screening tools and then help you find in-network coverage or out-of-network coverage based on the policy you have. 


Aetna insurance programs cover inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, as well as detoxification services, and medications that might be a vital part of your recovery.


How long Aetna will cover rehab is based on the plan you have and your evaluation. However, approved treatment centers can typically provide between 1 and 6 weeks of inpatient treatment plans and between 4 and 12 weeks of outpatient treatment plans.
