In-Network Insurance and Rehab
It is important to utilize your Aetna health network insurance with addiction treatment programs who are in-network or Aetna drug rehab centers.

Some Aetna policy require a 20% copay while others require a 10% copay. Most Aetna policies have yearly deductibles that need to be met. Our admissions office will help you understand more about your policy and what to expect before entering treatment. As with most in-network health insurance it is vital we obtain authorizations prior to your or your loved getting help in either our inpatient drug rehab, inpatient alcoholism program or outpatient rehab. By doing so we prevent large unexpected bills for our clients while giving them help they need.
Out-of-Network Insurance and Rehab
Many drug rehab centers in the united states do not meet Aetna’s strict criteria to become an in-network provider. Those that don’t may accept Aetna insurance are considered Out-of-Network. That means that your copay or coinsurance will be much higher which will be your responsibility to cover. It is not uncommon to see Aetna members required to pay 50% of any charges. This can create a massive financial burden most families can’t take on, ultimately preventing help with addiction care when it is needed the most.
