Does Assurant Health Cover Anorexia Nervosa Rehab Programs?

If long-term and short-term rehabilitation are included in your coverage plan, you can receive treatment for anorexia nervosa through most rehab programs. Assurant Health allows you to choose the exact coverage you need, so you must add rehabilitation services to your policy before attempting to receive such services. Speak to your Assurant Health insurance representative if you are not sure whether or not your policy covers rehabilitation programs.

If you did not add this benefit to your policy initially, your representative can add it for you. Keep in mind, however, that it might take a few weeks or months for you to have access to this type of care. While waiting for your rehabilitation program coverage to kick in, you can still receive treatment for your eating disorder. The exact type of care you are eligible for will depend on the details of your coverage. You also might need to have a full medical review before being deemed eligible to receive treatment through a rehabilitation facility in Assurant Health’s network.

Inpatient Treatment Length Assurant Health Will Cover (28-30, 60, 90+ Day)

Assurant Health coverage offers inpatient treatment at rehabilitation facilities, but you will be responsible for paying your deductible. The exact amount of your deductible depends on the type of treatment center you choose and the length of your stay. One major benefit of Assurant Health is that you can choose a plan that does not put a cap on the length of your stay; however, longer stays often require a higher deductible payment.

During your stay at a rehabilitation center, you will receive treatment for anorexia along with any related conditions you may have. If you choose a private-pay rehabilitation facility that accepts Assurant Health, you’ll likely have access to many high-end amenities, but your overall out-of-pocket cost might be higher. If money is a factor for you, you should choose a facility within Assurant Health’s network. These facilities are often hospital-based and do not have upscale accommodations, but you will have access to all the medical services you need to get well. If you need immediate access to long-term care, talk to an Assurant Health representative to find out whether or not you qualify.

Specialty Anorexia Treatments Using Assurant Health

How to Cover What Insurance Doesn’t Pay For

If you need to offset the cost of your treatment, you can do several things. First, you should know that Assurant Health has health payment advocates, and their job is to help you negotiate any out-of-pocket expenses you incur during treatment. You can also inquire about payment plans. Most rehabilitation centers offer payment plans to clients, particularly those from low-income households. If you plan to apply for a reduced rate, be ready to furnish proof of your current income. You can also visit local health departments and community agencies for assistance. Many local agencies offer free counseling, free health screenings and limited care to individuals in need.
