  • Policy Details: Examine your benefits booklet or coverage documents to understand what types of treatment, including residential care, are covered.

  • Verification by Cornerstone: We can reach out to Meritain Health on your behalf to clarify the specifics of your coverage and what it includes.

Note that mental health and substance use disorder services are generally covered under most insurance plans following the Affordable Care Act, comparable to medical/surgical services, although details can vary by policy.
