Coverage of Addiction Treatment by United Healthcare

In general, insurance policies cover all or part of the costs of addiction treatment. The type of treatment and provider can affect the coverage. United Healthcare, one of the largest insurers in the United States offers several plans that offer varying levels coverage. These may include and provided at Alta Centers:

Inpatient/residential rehab, which are known as a live-in treatment program in which patients receive around-the-clock care and supervision.

This level of care may be recommended to individuals struggling to manage their recovery on their own and unable to benefit from lower levels such as outpatient therapy and those living in surroundings not conducive to sobriety. Additionally, inpatient stays may be recommended for individuals suffering from co-occurring disorders; who have experienced prior relapse; and require medication management for withdrawal symptoms or need withdrawal management support. Residential drug rehab treatment offers increased focus on recovery while clinical and medical supervision provide greater control during withdrawal process, making management of severe withdrawal symptoms or any significant other medical or mental health conditions more effectively.


Co-occurring disorder treatment with United HealthCare

Mental health conditions often co-occur. Co-occurring disorders include depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder that often arise with addiction.

It can be difficult for people with co-occurring disorders to manage both conditions simultaneously. In many cases, the symptoms of one disorder can affect the other. If a person feels depressed, for example, that person might be less likely than usual to adhere to your addiction recovery program. If he or she is anxious, they might be more inclined to use alcohol or drugs compulsively to cope.

Dual diagnosis is also known as co-occurring disorders and requires treatment for both Mental Health Disorders and addiction.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurance companies to cover mental health treatment. This includes both co-occurring disorders treatment and standalone drug rehab.

United Healthcare offers some coverage of co-occurring disorders in its mental health plans. The specifics of this coverage will depend on the plan.

Difference between in-network and out-of-network United Healthcare Rehab Centers

United Healthcare has a contract with in-network facilities, like Alta Centers, meaning that they are bound to charge a specific amount for drug treatments and alcohol treatments. Out-of network centers may charge more because they have not agreed to the terms.

Because of an agreement with United Healthcare, in-network rehab facilities will offer lower prices for their services. The insurance company will pay a specific amount for services provided by these rehab centers. The patient is only responsible for the deductible and out-of-pocket expenses. Out-of-network clinics, on the other hand do not have a contract. They may therefore charge more for the exact same services and balance bill a patient for the difference between their retail price and the payment from the insurance company.
