Texas Children's Health Plan Rehab and Eating Disorder Coverage

Eating disorders are a serious problem that can have catastrophic effects on those who suffer from them. Anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder and their associated variants can be rooted in peer pressure, issues of self-esteem, or perceptions of societal demands. They may also be associated with other issues such as depression and substance abuse. Eating disorders can also be extremely difficult to overcome and can lead to devastating health problems, sometimes even resulting in death.

No matter how an eating disorder developed, there's always a way to get support and treatment. Texas Children's Health Plan eating disorder coverage can help people, whether children or adults, get the treatment they need to battle this tenacious problem that can destroy those who suffer from it.

Texas Children's Health Plan Can Help

The Texas Children's Health Plan, which provides health insurance options for both children and adults, covers treatment for eating disorders. The type of treatment and how long it lasts is typically based on a member's individual policy. The treatment may be covered in total by the policy, or the member may have to pay a portion of the cost. The treatment facility may offer a payment plan.

Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment

Whether you get inpatient or outpatient treatment generally depends on the severity of your eating disorder, the Texas Children's Health Plan eating disorder coverage available through your individual policy, and your doctor's recommendation. For someone who has a very serious eating disorder that sparks health concerns health and may even be life-threatening, a residential treatment center would be the likely recommendation. A facility such as this offers patients an opportunity to consistently interact with eating disorder rehabilitation experts as well as other people who are also dealing with an eating disorder. For teens, this is often the best option, as their personal lives may be fraught with exposure to the messages that may have led to eating disorders. 

For people who have the composure to care for their physical needs, even as they struggle with eating disorders, and are thus not putting themselves in grave danger, outpatient facility can provide therapy and coping tools while also allowing the time to keep up with activities such as home, work or school activities.
