Does United Healthcare Insurance Cover Mental Health and Addiction Treatment?

As with most insurance providers, there are multiple United Healthcare plans. However, United Healthcare plans do cover substance abuse and mental health treatment. While there are some exceptions based on insurance plan type (e.g., short-term insurance) under the Affordable Care Act, private health insurance companies must cover drug and alcohol rehab in most instances.

The difference in whether or not care is covered at a particular facility is often found in which specific treatment providers your healthcare plan works with. That is why it’s critical to call the addiction treatment center you’re interested in directly.

If you have a United Healthcare plan, Changes Healing Center is an ideal option. Our Arizona drug and alcohol treatment center makes treatment affordable and can help you use out-of-network benefits to pay for substance abuse treatment. Financial assistance and sliding scale fees may be available, and we are here to discuss payment plans with you or your family member in need of care.

Changes Healing Center offers a full continuum of care and gives each client a personalized addiction treatment plan with a schedule designed to suit your needs. This is just one of many things that sets Changes Healing Center apart from other treatment centers in Arizona.

What Factors Influence the Cost of United Healthcare Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehab Services?

Outside of insurance providers, what else can influence the cost of substance abuse treatment? There are a couple of factors to consider. First, the level of care you intend to enter can make a difference.

For example, outpatient treatment generally costs less than inpatient treatment. Inpatient rehab programs and on-site medical detox usually cost more than partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs because they include room and board, meals, and 24/7 medical supervision.

That said, all treatment options have distinct benefits and can be made affordable with coverage or out-of-network benefits from an insurance provider.

Where you attend treatment for drug and alcohol abuse also makes a difference. Statistically, rehab treatment in Arizona costs less than it does in some other areas, on average, across the United States. Additionally, all rehab centers have varying out-of-pocket costs, which might impact how much your copay for rehab treatment is, if applicable.

The length of your stay is one last factor. You will likely be recommended to stay in rehab for a minimum of 30-90 days. That way, you can rebuild new patterns, address underlying factors that affect addiction, and identify healthy coping skills in a substance-free environment.
