Healthsmart Rehab and Compulsive Gambling Treatment

Compulsive gambling is not typically as dangerous to your physical health as other types of addiction, such as an addiction to drugs or alcohol. However, this condition can affect your mental health significantly. In addition, compulsive gambling can also result in financial loss, bankruptcy, homelessness and other complications.

If you have been struggling with this condition, you may already be experiencing financial problems. For this reason, you won't want to enter treatment until you are sure you can afford to pay the bills. Fortunately, if you have health insurance through HealthSmart, you may not pay as much for compulsive gambling treatment.

What is HealthSmart?

HealthSmart is not a traditional insurer. Instead, it is a company that provides products and solutions for employers with self-funded policies. Some of the products provided by HealthSmart include claims administration, network solutions, information systems solutions and more. With HealthSmart, employers can design a healthcare program that meets their needs. They can also choose which HealthSmart products they will utilize as they manage the policy.

Understanding HealthSmart Compulsive Gambling Treatment Benefits

Employers who utilize HealthSmart can design their own policies. However, they must still comply with the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, which means that certain mental health benefits must be included in the plan. Thus, most HealthSmart plans will cover compulsive gambling treatment. However, the exact Healthsmart Compulsive Gambling Treatment benefits you receive will depend on the specifics of your plan.

Some of the factors that may affect your coverage include:

  • Deductible - Most policies will require you to meet a deductible before they will begin to cover your treatment expenses.
  • Coinsurance - After meeting your deductible, you may continue to pay a set percentage of your expenses until you have reached your plan's out-of-pocket maximum. This is known as "coinsurance."
  • Copays - Many policies will require copays, which are flat fees that must be paid when you receive certain treatments.
  • Network Requirements - Many HealthSmart policies include a preferred provider network. In order to receive the maximum amount of Healthsmart Compulsive Gambling Treatment coverage, you must typically choose providers from this network. If you utilize providers from outside this network, your coverage amount may be reduced, or you may not be eligible for benefits at all.

All of the factors above can vary by plan. For more specific information about your Healthsmart Compulsive Gambling Treatment benefits, contact HealthSmart directly.
