Does LifeSynch Cover Eating Disorders Rehab Programs?

Inpatient Treatment Length LifeSynch Will Cover (28-30, 60, 90+ Day)
Your LifeSynch plan may not directly cover the cost of staying at an inpatient facility; however, you may still want to contact you LifeSynch representative to learn more about your inpatient treatment options. Keep in mind, however, that you should not let your insurance company tell you how long you get to stay in treatment. Ideally, that is a decision that should be made between you and your healthcare provider.
According to the National Eating Disorder Association, anyone with a severe eating disorder should try to get inpatient treatment. When you stay in an inpatient facility, you get access to all the treatment you need. In addition, you get to take a break from the stresses of your everyday life. This break is critical for the recovery of many patients with eating disorders.
The cost of inpatient care varies widely, depending on the type of program in which you enroll. If you enroll in a basic inpatient facility, you may be able to get low-cost care. However, if you opt to stay in an eating disorder clinic that offers all the world’s best amenities, you can expect to pay a bit more for your care. The total cost of your care can impact whether or not your insurance company will cover it.
LifeSynch Coverage for Eating Disorders With Dual Diagnosis
Many eating disorders do not exist alone. If your eating disorder is severe, you may have physical complications in addition to your eating disorder. These issues may include downy hair on your body, lowered blood pressure, organ failure and heart trouble. It is critical that you get care for these issues while you get care for your eating disorder.
In most cases, a dual diagnosis refers to the existence of a mental health disorder or substance abuse issue alongside your eating disorder. All kinds of mental health disorders are associated with eating disorders. Before starting your treatment, make sure your health care provider understands all your mental health needs.
If you have a dual diagnosis, you may be able to use your LifeSynch plan to help you cover some of the cost of your care. In some cases, the existence of a dual diagnosis may be to your advantage in regards to coverage. For instance, if your insurance policy doesn’t cover the cost of psychotherapy due to anorexia, perhaps it covers the cost of psychotherapy for depression. By being open about your conditions and your needs with your insurance company and your health care provider, you may be able to get more coverage.

Specialty Eating Disorder Treatments Using LifeSynch
While you are getting care for your eating disorder, you may get several types of treatment, and according to the Mayo Clinic, the following types of treatment are the most popular:
- Weight restoration
- Nutrition education
In most cases, you will have at least two or three of these elements in your eating disorder treatment program. Each of these four categories has several subsections of care. You will find the most specialty options within the psychotherapy category. For instance, you could choose traditional therapy, psychoanalysis, group therapy, family therapy or another specialty option.
Many inpatient clinics also offer specialty programs and amenities. You could find a clinic that offers meditation or other Eastern treatment options. To find out if your insurance company covers any specialty treatments, you will need to contact your insurance agent directly. If you have insurance through your employer, you can ask them for additional details about coverage.
Keep in mind that it is always better to get specialty treatment that works than it is to get treatment that doesn’t work simply because it is covered by your insurance company. Instead of letting your insurance company dictate the terms of your treatment, work with your health care provider to find a treatment plan that works for you. Spending a little money on specialty care now is a long-term investment in your health and your future.
How to Cover What Insurance Doesn’t Pay For
If your insurance company will not cover the cost of all your treatment, you can pay for your treatment in other ways. Many clinics and psychotherapists offer sliding scales for payment. A sliding scale allows you to pay a rate that has been tailored to your income. Some programs even offer payment plans that allow you to spread the cost of treatment out over several months or even years. You may even be able to get a line of credit that allows you to pay for treatment later, as long as you agree to paying interest.
In other cases, you may even be able to get a portion of your treatment for free. State and local programs can help low-income people pay for eating disorder treatment. Some of the free or low-cost services you may find include group counseling, individual therapy or nutrition classes.
