Does Insurance Cover PTSD Treatment?


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is disruptive to a person’s everyday life. The family may even be affected by PTSD if the reactions to the traumatic event do not go away over time. Treatment is the best option when diagnosed with this disorder.

Understanding PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is tough to understand for someone who hasn’t experienced it before. When an individual is put into a very traumatic experience, their adrenaline kicks into overdrive. If they are in multiple high-stress situations like this, their adrenaline response kicks in over and over again, making it nearly impossible to relax fully. They can be easily triggered and experience episodes where they feel overwhelmingly upset, anxious, violent, or depressed.

Ongoing PTSD treatment

This disorder, while incredibly disruptive to someone’s life, is still considered a newly identified mental health issue, with some healthcare plans offering full coverage for treatment and others offering very little. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider about your specific plan and their coverage policy to determine how much financial help they provide.

PTSD treatment centers

A residential treatment center is an excellent option for treating PTSD, especially for anyone struggling with PTSD and addiction issues.  It’s an opportunity to break from everyday stressors of life. These programs help people learn coping skills and create meaningful connections with others who are dealing with similar life-changing experiences.

Another treatment option is an intensive outpatient program, where people can attend morning or evening classes that fit their schedules. These programs are often much less expensive and provide therapy sessions as needed. They can involve 12-step meetings as well, where people can come together to discuss their struggles in safe and confidential environment with others sharing many of their same problems.

Finding a therapist that will work with your insurance

Finding a therapist that will work with your healthcare provider is easier than you might think. Currently, the healthcare industry is pushing to find financing options for mental health providers that work well for all parties involved. It may take a little time and effort, but it will be well worth it to get the treatment that you need. A good place to start is by calling the treatment facility you would like to go to and speaking to their admission specialists. They will be trained on insurance and treatment options and will be able to help you make an informed decision.

You are worth any cost

Treatment may initially feel expensive, but remember that you are worth every dollar you spend. You deserve a full life where you can succeed professionally and personally. Life will feel much less constricted and stressful with the help and support of specialists trained to assist you in recovery.
