Group and Pensions Administrators Rehab and Eating Disorder Coverage

At some point, your dieting pattern turned into an eating disorder. With the benefit of your Group and Pensions Administrators eating disorder coverage, you can get back to health and bid farewell to disorderly eating.

Knowing You Have a Problem

It can be hard to tell when your desire to maintain your weight through dieting turns into an eating disorder. Experts say that over a third of those who engage in regular dieting will eventually move to pathological dieting. Of that third, about a quarter will develop a partial or full-blown eating disorder. If you engage in one or more of the following behaviors, you may have an eating disorder:

  • dieting to lose weight, despite already having a healthy weight
  • skipping meals or eating too few calories
  • smoking to curb appetite
  • vomiting after a large meal
  • taking medicines like laxatives to promote quicker digestion

These are only a few of the early warning signs. If you have had an eating disorder for some time, you will have additional health care needs.

Seeking Help

Eating disorders, like many mental health disorders, have a physical component to them. The severity of your health condition will affect the type of treatment you get. Doctors usually triage your health concerns, so that they can provide treatment for your most acute problems first. Generally, care providers aim to get you to a minimum standard of health, so that you can begin to work on the mental or emotional factors that are triggering these behaviors. This usually involves a variety of treatment options, including:

The treatment plan will be determined by you and your doctor, with a discussion of your insurance coverage and ability to pay.

Paying For Treatment

Inpatient treatment is often the most effective approach to managing moderate to severe cases of eating disorders, but it is also expensive. Your Group and Pensions Administrators insurance offers some coverage for disease management and wellness. Consult your plan details directly for information about coverage for inpatient rehabilitation, as well as outpatient treatments for eating disorders. You will likely be expected to pay at least a small percentage out of pocket.

You deserve to feel better, with a healthy approach to food and dieting. Your Group and Pensions Administrators eating disorder coverage can help you achieve this goal.
