Paying for Behavioral Health Treatment

Mental Health Insurance Mental Health Insurance
More than 43 million Americans suffer from depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, but more than half never get help, even people who have health insurance. These challenges can strike deeply at a family’s financial well-being. Insurance is a crucial tool that can grant access to needed treatment; however, navigating health insurance coverage is no easy feat.

Meadows Behavioral Healthcare, an industry leader in providing treatment for people struggling with addiction, eating disorders, trauma, and related mental health conditions, understands the challenges individuals and families face when obtaining and financing quality care. In an effort to help alleviate some of this burden, we have worked diligently to create relationships with insurance providers to offer in-network benefits to their members.

“As we have been in discussions with several managed care companies and they have learned the depth, quality, and robust treatment offerings at our programs they are very supportive and eager to enter into a formal relationship with Meadows Behavioral Healthcare and have been very supportive of the treatment we do,” said Sean Walsh, Meadows Behavioral Healthcare CEO. “Our efforts have resulted in being selected as an in-network provider for MultiPlan employers and most recently with Health Net. We are continuing to work towards adding further contracts and expect to announce more by the end of the year.”

MultiPlan is a trusted partner to over 700 healthcare payers in the commercial health, government, and property and casualty markets. Through managed care plans covered by MultiPlan such as Cigna, Aetna, and United, beneficiaries will now have access to cutting-edge mental health services by simply paying their copay and coinsurance. This includes the full continuum of inpatient, residential treatment and transitional living programs offered by Meadows Behavioral Healthcare.

The agreement with Health Net will allow more individuals to have access to the tremendous quality and excellent eating disorder treatment at Remuda Ranch at The Meadows as well as intensive outpatient services at The Meadows Outpatient Center.

“The behavioral health industry has seen many changes this last year, and unfortunately, has been riddled with unethical practices revolving around fraud, patient brokering and shoddy care. Managed care companies around the country have increased their scrutiny and vetting of provider’s to ensure they meet their standards,” Walsh said. “We are proud at Meadows Behavioral Healthcare to be able to bring our world-class treatment and partner with commercial managed care companies in the hope more people in need will have access to our treatment in their time of need.”

For many individuals, private pay may still be the best choice for behavioral health treatment. But, no matter what your insurance coverage is, it’s important that you get the help you or a loved one needs.
