Why Does United Healthcare Cover Rehab?

United Healthcare drug rehab coverage exists because addiction is recognized as a chronic disease requiring comprehensive treatment. Based on research, our understanding and treatment approaches for addiction have significantly evolved over the years. What was once seen as a lack of willpower is now recognized as a complex medical condition affecting the brain and behavior.

Addiction is classified as a chronic disease by major medical organizations, including:

  • The American Medical Association (AMA)
  •  The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)
  • The World Health Organization (WHO)

The classification is based on research that shows addiction changes the function of the brain, leading to a loss of control over substance use and compulsive behavior.

Effective addiction treatment also requires a multi-faceted approach addressing the mental, physical and social aspects of the disease. That includes detoxification to manage withdrawal, therapy to address underlying psychological issues, medication-assisted treatment to reduce cravings and ongoing support to maintain recovery and prevent relapse.

It’s also more cost-effective for insurers to cover addiction treatment because, otherwise untreated, it can lead to many expensive health complications.

Through offering coverage for rehab and addiction treatment services, health outcomes are improved, and it reduces the stigma associated with substance use disorders.

Does United Healthcare Cover Mental Health Services?

Many people who are struggling with addiction and looking for a United Healthcare drug rehab also have a co-occurring mental health disorder. The insurer offers comprehensive coverage for mental health services and co-occurring disorders. The term co-occurring disorder is a reference to the presence of both a mental disorder and substance use disorder, requiring integrated treatment for effectively addressing both conditions.

Programs treating mental health and addiction at the same time provide coordinated care for successful outcomes.

What Is an In-Network UHC Drug Rehab Center?

Our outpatient drug and alcohol rehab program is in-network with United Healthcare.

An in-network UHC drug rehab center has a contractual agreement with the insurer to provide services to members at pre-negotiated rates.

Benefits for members include:

  • You may have lower out-of-pocket costs. In-network providers usually charge lower rates, and insurance plans will often cover a more significant percentage of the costs for services rendered by out-of-network providers than out-of-network providers. This can include co-pays and deductibles.
  • Our rehab center can directly bill UHC, reducing your administrative burden. When you use in-network providers, you’ll usually have fewer forms to fill out and fewer claims to submit for reimbursement.
  • In-network providers are vetted and are required to meet standards for quality and care.
  • You’re more likely to receive comprehensive coverage for various services in-network.
  • In-network providers like Outpatient Los Angeles are familiar with United Healthcare’s policies and procedures, which can make it faster and smoother to get treatment approvals.
  • Being in-network can mean a rehab center is part of a larger healthcare provider network, which facilitates coordination and continuity of care. This is especially important for follow-up services and ongoing treatment.
