HOW TO PAY FOR TREATMENT


Aegis is a Medi-Cal and Medicare provider. Aegis is also an approved provider for major HMOs, PPOs, IPAs (e.g. Kaiser Permanente, Health Net, United Health) and large employer plans (e.g. Wells Fargo, Target, UC System). Over 50% of Aegis’ existing patients have their treatment paid in full by Medi-Cal, Medicare.

Beginning in January 2014, the Affordable Care Act has transformed the way health care is provided and paid for in the United States that will affect all residents. These changes include:

  • The expansion of Medi-Cal eligibility to all individuals with annual income of less than $15,856 for a single person, $21,404 for a couple, $32,499 for families of four, and up to $54,689 for a family of eight. Most young adults and students in particular, would now qualify for Drug Medi-Cal coverage, and will not have to pay for treatment within Aegis.

  • California’s Healthcare Exhange will require that HMOs and PPOs cover mental health and addiction treatment services as part of their essential benefit package. This means that for the first time, individuals enrolled in these private health insurance plans will be entitled to receive addiction treatment services at Aegis.

  • Self-pay Patients are eligible for a sliding scale fee schedule that is based on their ability to pay. Most Aegis patients qualify for reductions in their rates up to 50% of the published rate. Aegis accepts various methods of payment, including all major credit cards.
