HealthSmart doesn't sell its own insurance policies. Instead, this company provides assistance to employers who have opted for self-funded group plans. This means that the employer designs the policy, manages it and pays all employee claims from the company's funds. The goal of self-funded coverage is to save money and/or retain more control over employee health coverage.
Understanding Your HealthSmart Video Game Addiction Coverage
If your employer manages a self-funded policy through HealthSmart, you may or may not qualify for video game addiction coverage. Policy provisions are determined by your employer, so you must consult your plan documents to determine whether the treatment you need will be covered. Keep in mind that most policies will cover mental health treatment in order to comply with the ACA.
