Datapoint: Aetna Will Keep Covering Some Virtual Behavioral Health Services

CVS Health Corp.-owned Aetna has reversed course on a previously announced telehealth coverage change, Politico reported last week. The insurer had planned on ending virtual coverage for intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization program care on Dec. 1, but an Aetna spokesperson told Politico that Aetna would no longer go through with that decision. Groups such as the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the Consortium Representing Eating Disorders Care previously raised concerns about the proposed change. Aetna is currently the third-largest health insurer in the U.S., serving 23,660,554 members, with about 72% enrolled in employer-sponsored coverage.
