MultiPlan Rehab and Video Game Addiction Coverage

The video game market is booming. By one estimate, one billion people played computer-based video games in 2012 alone. Yet like many activities that we find pleasurable, excessive enjoyment of video games sometimes turns into compulsive behavior.

While some may scoff at the seriousness of video game addiction, it's a legitimate problem with potentially disabling consequences. Compulsive gaming can inhibit social relationships, negatively impact your finances and even damage your health. Like any compulsive behavior, it can wrest away control of your life and radically impair your judgment.

There is good news, however: Video game addiction is highly treatable. With the right assistance from a qualified professional, you can get healthy again by eliminating or minimizing compulsive behavior.

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

MultiPlan Video Game Addiction Coverage

MultiPlan is a major health services management provider serving almost 70 million Americans. The company offers coverage for behavioral health issues along with standard medical coverage. Typical behavioral health issues include compulsive behavior, substance abuse and other disorders.

Because plans vary considerably in what they cover, it's important to ensure the plan in which you're enrolled is well-suited to your needs. It's also critical to seek pre-authorization before beginning treatment -- should you fail to do so, you may incur serious added expense. 

Treatments Offered Through MultiPlan Video Game Addiction Coverage

If you're struggling with gaming addiction and wish to seek treatment, there are a variety of options available. Before scheduling services, however, you should contact your MultiPlan representative to determine your coverage status. Some common treatments for video game addiction include:

  • Outpatient therapy
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Group or solo counseling
  • Medication
  • Psychotherapy

Choosing the best treatment path is an important decision, yet there's no reason to be intimidated. Your insurance provider and mental health specialists can assist you with this decision.

Paying for Treatment With MultiPlan Video Game Addiction Coverage

Insurance plans can differ considerably in terms of services and treatments covered, so it's vital to review your plan's details before starting treatment. Some plans may offer fairly comprehensive video game addiction coverage, while others may offer no coverage at all.

Other factors, such as co-payments and deductibles, must also be considered. Should you require treatment outside your insurance coverage, you may always self pay the difference.

Your next move

Video game addiction is no laughing matter. If you're struggling with this condition, you should seek help immediately.
