Understanding Your Coverage
When receiving depression treatment, the amount you will owe depends on several factors, including:
- Treatment chosen - Some treatments are more expensive than others. For example, inpatient treatment usually costs more than outpatient depression treatment. Likewise, if your doctor prescribes medication, you will incur an ongoing expense. Although Assurant covers all of these treatments, the exact amount paid will vary.
- Provider - Selecting the right provider is very important with Assurant Health. All Assurant Health plans feature a network of preferred providers. Choosing a provider from within this network will ensure that you receive the maximum amount of benefits possible. For example, if you need inpatient treatment, choosing from the list of Assurant Health Depression Treatment Centers is highly recommended.
- Deductible - Before Assurant will begin covering your expenses, you must meet your deductible. The higher your deductible, the more you can expect to pay for treatment.
- Copay/Coinsurance - Assurant requires insured individuals to pay copays and/or coinsurance for some services. If your plan includes copays and/or coinsurance for depression treatment, these requirements will affect your overall liability for treatment.
