LifeSynch Rehab and Video Game Addiction Coverage

If you have a video game addiction, you may feel like you are no longer in control of your own life. The time you spend playing video games may prevent you from holding a job, and your relationships with friends and family members may suffer. You may also experience financial problems and health concerns if the addiction continues. Fortunately, effective treatment for video game addiction is available.

Video game addiction treatment can be costly. However, if you have an employer-sponsored plan through LifeSynch, you may not need to pay as much for treatment.

Understanding LifeSynch Video Game Addiction Coverage

LifeSynch is a subsidiary of Humana that provides supplemental benefit programs employers can purchase in order to improve the health of their employees. Several different products are available from LifeSynch, and all of these products provide different benefits. In addition, employers can customize these programs as needed.

Will My Treatment be Covered?

Because LifeSynch offers multiple products and allows employers to customize these products, determining whether the treatment you need will be covered can be challenging. For example, while some LifeSynch programs may cover only counseling for people who suffer from video game addiction, other programs may provide more extensive LifeSynch Video Game Addiction Coverage. To determine exactly what types of treatment will be covered under your employer's program, consult any plan documents provided by your employer or contact LifeSynch for more information.

Will I Pay for Treatment?

Depending on the structure of your employer's program, you may or may not be required to pay a portion of your treatment expenses. If you are required to share financial responsibility for your treatment, you may need to meet a deductible, pay coinsurance or make copayments. Be sure to inquire about cost-sharing requirements before you schedule your treatment.

Please keep in mind that your program may have requirements in addition to those listed here. For example, in order to qualify for LifeSynch Video Game Addiction Coverage, you may need to obtain a referral for treatment from your doctor, or you may need to request precertification from LifeSynch itself. Some plans may require you to use certain providers in order to qualify for coverage. Before you begin treatment, be sure that you have met all of these requirements.
