HMO Rehab and Internet Addiction Coverage
People who have Internet addiction disorder, also known as IAD, have problems with impulse control. The disorder can alienate family and friends and cause problems at home, work and school. The addiction can manifest itself through Internet compulsions, cyber relationships and cybersex, information overload and other areas that call for different treatment focuses. Internet addiction rehab can help people use the Internet in ways that are healthy and leave room for a comfortable, productive lifestyle.
Inpatient or Outpatient Therapy?
If you suffer from Internet addiction disorder and receive medical insurance through a health maintenance organization, or HMO, you may want to rely on HMO Internet addiction coverage for your treatment. For people whose Internet addictions are mild, outpatient treatment is a reasonable choice, as they can continue to live at home while going to sessions at the rehab center. When addiction is moderate to severe, however, inpatient treatment is the best way to provide quality treatment while having medical attention nearby. Not only will you get more time with the doctors and other healthcare professionals, you will also have more time with peers with whom you can develop some camaraderie. You will also have monitoring and support to keep you from slipping back into compulsive behavior on the Internet. HMO Internet addiction coverage can be part of this.

HMO Focuses on Network
An HMO provides managed care through a network of healthcare providers and facilities. Patients are assigned specific primary care physicians who are responsible for providing the bulk of their care and supervising treatment by other providers such as specialists within the network. HMO Internet addiction coverage may restrict you to an in-network rehab facility. If you want to go outside the network, your HMO might require you to pick up the price difference or may refuse to cover the treatment at all.
