Medical Mutual Rehab and Internet Addiction Coverage

Internet addiction is a growing problem in the United States. According to a study published on the U.S. National Library of Medicine’s website, this disorder causes several problems, including psychological issues, social difficulties and neurological problems. Studies show that internet addiction affects between 1.5% and 8.2% of the population.


While this condition is sometimes difficult to diagnose, it’s often even more difficult to treat simply because it’s hard to find insurance providers who will cover internet addiction treatments. In addition to helping you recognize the signs of internet addiction, The Fix can help you learn more about Medical Mutual internet addiction coverage.


The Five Types of Internet Addiction


Most people assume that someone with an internet addiction is simply someone that spends too much time online – either playing games, chatting with friends or simply surfing. However, there are actually five distinct types of internet addiction:


  1. Online gaming addictions
  2. Online compulsions like compulsive shopping or gambling
  3. Information addictions (compulsively browsing or searching databases)
  4. Online relationship addictions through chat rooms or social media
  5. Cyber-sex addictions, including adult chat rooms or online porn


While each type of internet addiction requires a different approach to treatment, each has a similar set of symptoms. Here are some indications that you should look into Medical Mutual internet addiction coverage so that you can seek treatment:


  • You’re losing interest in activities you once found enjoyable.
  • You’re withdrawing from your family and friends.
  • You have an ever-increasing need for privacy.
  • You find yourself ignoring responsibilities, commitments or chores.
  • You’re struggling academically.


How You Can Find Out More about Medical Mutual Internet Addiction Coverage


If the above signs sound familiar, then it may be time to reach out for professional help. However, insurance policies are notoriously difficult to understand. Does your Medical Mutual policy cover mental health care or internet addiction?
