LifeSynch Rehab and Internet Addiction Coverage
An addiction to the internet may not be as physically dangerous as an addiction to a drug, but it can still affect your life in a negative way. Struggling with this condition can cause you to lose productivity at work and experience problems in relationships with friends and family. The addiction can also affect your self-esteem and mental health.
You can overcome an internet addiction with professional treatment. However, professional treatment can be expensive. Fortunately, if your employer provides benefits through LifeSynch, you may have access to internet addiction treatment at a lower cost.

About LifeSynch Programs
LifeSynch is a subsidiary of Humana that offers several treatment programs to employers who want to improve or maintain the health of their employees. Two of the products LifeSynch offers may provide LifeSynch Internet Addiction Coverage: Employee Assistance Programs and Behavioral Health Programs.
Employee Assistance Programs
LifeSynch's Employee Assistance Programs can be customized to meet your employer's needs. The basic program offers 24-hour telephone counseling for internet addiction, as well as three to eight counseling sessions per year. However, if your employer has made changes to the basic program, your treatment options may differ.
Behavioral Health Programs
LifeSynch offer three primary types of behavioral health programs that may cover internet addiction treatment: Managed Behavioral Health, Psychiatric Disability Management and Integrated Medical Behavioral Healthcare. These programs differ considerably, so check your plan documents to determine whether you qualify for LifeSynch Internet Addiction Coverage.
Other variables may also affect your LifeSynch Internet Addiction Coverage. Some of these variables include:
- Type of Treatment - Some treatments for internet addiction may cost more than others. Likewise, certain treatments your doctor recommends may not be covered under your LifeSynch plan.
- Cost Sharing - Some LifeSynch plans may require you to share financial responsibility for your treatment. This means that you may need to meet a deductible and/or pay coinsurance before your LifeSynch Internet Addiction Coverage will begin.
- Precertification - Depending on the specifics of your policy, you may need to request precertification for internet addiction treatment. This means that you will need LifeSynch's express permission before the treatment begins.
- Network Requirements - Your LifeSynch plan may require you to use certain doctors and/or facilities in order to qualify for coverage.
