Humana Rehab and Eating Disorder Coverage

Here are the two most troubling statistics regarding eating disorders: 24 million Americans suffer from one, yet only ten-percent will receive treatment.

If left untreated, anorexia, bulimia and binge eating can have ruinous effects on your health. Once an eating disorder becomes sufficiently advanced, these negative effects can prove life threatening.

That's why it's critical to seek help as quickly as possible. You don't have to face this alone -- there are a variety of treatment approaches that have proven effective. These treatments can help you regain control of your eating habits and help you achieve good health.

One of the first steps to take before beginning treatment is a thorough review of your insurance coverage.

Humana Eating Disorder Coverage

As one of the larger insurance companies in the U.S., Humana offers coverage for anorexia, bulimia and binge eating treatment. It's important to recognize, however, that not every policy is the same. Some policies have more extensive coverage than others, and the amount paid out by the insurer will also vary by plan. This means you should always reference your policy before making treatment arrangements, and seek pre-certification for services when necessary.

Common Treatments Offered Through Humana Eating Disorder Coverage

There is no universal approach to treating an eating disorder. What works for you may not work for someone else. Some of the most common treatment approaches include:

  • Outpatient treatment
  • Inpatient treatment
  • Counseling
  • Art therapy
  • Recreational therapy
  • Behavioral therapy

Many who struggle with an eating disorder also suffer from associated mental illnesses such as depression. Humana will typically cover any medically necessary treatment for these associated illnesses.

By consulting with your insurer and medical professionals, you can determine the best course of action for you. 

How Much Will Treatment Cost With Humana Eating Disorder Coverage?

The cost of your treatment is determined by your level of coverage. Inpatient treatment is generally more expensive, but may work better for those with more severe problems. Humana offers up to 20 visits for initial outpatient treatment under most policies.

Humana in some cases may also pay for executive or luxury treatment, though you must first seek approval with your insurance representative.

The next step

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, so it's imperative that you act immediately. If you need more information about Humana eating disorder coverage, please visit the company's website.
