Great news for customers of Aetna Insurance who need residential eating disorder treatment: Canopy Cove is now an in-network provider with Aetna.
The Difficulty Of Getting Insurance Coverage For Eating Disorder Treatment
Finding an eating disorder treatment center that’s covered by your insurance isn’t always easy. However, when a patient is at the point in their eating disorder where residential treatment is the right step for them to take, NOT taking that step could be a life and death decision. When not attending treatment is simply not safe, it leaves many families scrambling to come up with the finances to get that much-needed treatment.
This leaves many patients at a loss, but fortunately, the insurance companies are slowly but surely catching on that eating disorder treatment is far more than an optional or elective treatment. We encourage and cheer on the efforts of other insurance providers to be more proactive in offering coverage for eating disorder recovery, as eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, according to a 2012 study.
What This News Means For Customers of Aetna
Getting help for eating disorders is now easier than ever for customers of Aetna. Now that Canopy Cove is an in-network provider with Aetna, it means that they consider our eating disorder program as part of the network of doctors, specialists, dentists, hospitals, surgical centers, and other facilities that they have a contract with as providers.
If Aetna is your provider and you have been waiting to get eating disorder treatment because of lack of insurance coverage, now is your chance to try again. You’ll still pay your coinsurance or copay along with your deductible, but overall, you’ll save money compared to paying for the entire cost of treatment out-of-pocket.
