Along with these, United Healthcare also offers addiction treatment coverage through their healthcare offerings and through PPO and HMO plans.
Does United Healthcare Cover Rehab?
Yes, UHC does cover substance use disorder and can help at multiple levels of care.
Path to Recovery with UHC Rehab Programs
From detox all the way through to alumni and support groups, every level of care is important during substance abuse treatment. While detox is not required for everyone, it is recommended for many to help them overcome the early stages of sobriety that is plagued by discomfort and increased risk of relapse.
After detox, many clients will begin their stay at a 30+ day inpatient treatment program where they will be exposed to numerous forms of therapies and treatment to help them learn about their addiction and develop strategies to fight it. These are the two highest levels of care, after that clients will move to non-residential forms of treatment.
These include partial hospitalization programs and intensive outpatient programs. These levels of treatment can be done while a client is staying at a sober living home and working on their transition back to their normal lifestyle.
Many think this is the last level of treatment because alumni and aftercare programs are so often overlooked. This type of continued care will not only help clients shortly after leaving treatment, they can be lifelong support systems that they develop to not only help themselves but all those participating.
Each of these levels of care is available at Reflection’s Bay rehab programs.
Addictions Covered by UHC Rehab
Treatment services for mental health and substance use disorders are guaranteed in commercial United States health insurance plans with the passage of the Affordable Care Act. The ACA made substance abuse one of the ten essential health benefits required to be covered. Regardless of what illicit substance you are using, you can get help. This means you can get help at a United Healthcare drug rehab facility, including our program at Reflections for the following:
- Alcohol addiction
- Meth addiction
- Prescription drug addiction
- Cocaine addiction
Does United Healthcare Cover Inpatient Rehab?
If you are looking for inpatient rehab, United Healthcare has coverage and support in place to help those seeking addiction treatment at both inpatient and outpatient levels of care.
United Healthcare Coverage for Alcohol Rehab
Alcohol addiction is one of the most prevalent substance abuse problems in the country. Because of its legality and the social culture that surrounds the drug, many people binge drink and abuse alcohol without even knowing it.
Unfortunately, this constant type of alcohol use can lead to the development of dependence and the evolution of an alcohol addiction. Alcohol abuse is not something to scoff at, a consistent problem can lead to numerous health problems as it affects nearly every organ in the body. These problems can include:
- Alcoholic hepatitis
- Liver failure
- Increased risk of cancer and more
If you are wondering "does United Healthcare cover alcohol rehab?" you're in luck. At Reflections, we have PPO United Healthcare rehab coverage options and we recognize how dangerous alcohol addiction can be. Our treatment reflects this by including medically monitored detox, MAT options, and more.
UHC Drug Rehab
Opioids, heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine are some of the most common types of drug addiction that affect U.S. adults. 2019 data shows that over 20% of people aged 12 and over have had some past year of illicit drug use. This statistic is even more concerning when seeing that that number has been increasing steadily since 2015.
With the increase in illicit drug use and the major spikes seen from opioid addiction and overdose problems due to the Opioid Crisis, there is a need for accessible and affordable addiction treatment. That’s where Reflections can help. We work with many insurance companies including United Healthcare to help keep our addiction treatment an option for all.
Medication-Assisted Treatment & Aetna Rehab
Medication-assisted treatment is an evidence-based form of addiction treatment that has been shown to work. Despite the evidence that shows that those using MAT experience lower relapse rates, higher treatment retention, and more, there are some misconceptions about MAT that prevent people from seriously considering it.
Many believe that MAT is just replacing one form of substance abuse with another. However, these medications are FDA-approved and proven to help clients overcome addiction. Some of the most common forms of medications for medication-assisted treatment include:
When looking for addiction treatment, it is vital to find a recovery center that can offer MAT options.
UHC and Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Like medication-assisted treatment, finding a United Healthcare rehab facility that can offer dual diagnosis treatment is a must. A dual diagnosis refers to a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder co-occurring together. This can be especially problematic because of the dangerous way these two problems play off of one another.
Someone struggling with a dual diagnosis may see that their depression causes them to be more inclined to drink alcohol, developing an alcoholism problem. Or vice versa, their alcohol abuse leads to depressive thoughts and poor mental health. Overall, mental health and addiction are closely related and can lead to clients digging a bigger hole for themselves more quickly.
The problems associated with dual diagnosis make it clear that finding a treatment program that can provide help for both problems is vital for full recovery.
Does United Healthcare Cover Mental Health?
United Healthcare has both in-person and telehealth options in place for those seeking behavioral health and mental health care.
