MultiPlan Rehab and Eating Disorder Coverage

One glance at eating disorder statistics tells a grim story. As many as 24 million Americans struggle with illnesses such as anorexia of bulimia. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Additionally, almost half of those with an eating disorder meet the criteria for a diagnosis of clinical depression.

Given the alarming nature of those numbers, it's absolutely imperative that those suffering from this condition seek qualified professional help immediately. Though eating disorders are extremely serious and potentially profoundly disabling, they are also highly treatable.

One of the first steps toward overcoming your eating disorder is a complete review of your insurance coverage.

MultiPlan Eating Disorder Coverage

The Multiplan Network is a large health services organization serving almost 70 million Americans. Like most large organizations of its kind, MultiPlan offers coverage for behavioral health issues, including eating disorders.

The extent of your coverage may vary by plan, however, so it's important to ensure that your particular plan is well suited to your coverage needs. You should also remember to always seek pre-authorization before scheduling any treatment or services. Failure to do so could result in financial penalties. 

Treatments Offered With MultiPlan Eating Disorder Coverage

Choosing the proper treatment path is a critical aspect of your recovery from an eating disorder. While this decision may seem intimidating, your insurer and your treatment specialist will help craft the right plan for you. Some popular treatments include:

  • Intensive inpatient therapy
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Residential rehab
  • Art or music therapy
  • Group or solo counseling

The best treatment option for you depends on factors such as the severity of your problem and your work and family obligations.

The Cost of Treatment

How much treatment your MultiPlan eating disorder coverage will pay for largely depends on the specifics of your plan. One important factor to consider is whether your treatment falls within the approved MultiPlan network of providers. Treatment outside this network may lead to additional expenses accruing. Co-payments and deductibles must also be considered when exploring the cost of treatment. If you require services outside your MultiPlan eating disorder coverage, you may always choose to self pay the difference.

Taking the next step

If you are struggling with an eating disorder, it's important to realize that you don't have to face it alone. Help is just a phone call away.
