Overview of United Healthcare & Addiction Treatment

United Healthcare is one of the largest insurance providers in America, and they offer different plans and coverage. Most plans provide essential assistance for addiction treatment, but what services are included and what costs are required upfront will vary depending on your location and the policy you have.


United Healthcare resources

United Healthcare has a separate division specifically to help people with drug and alcohol addiction. There are confidential services for people who want to talk about substance abuse under the United Behavioral Health division. You can call them directly at any time to talk about substance abuse and recovery. They will provide confidential guidance on different treatment options, questions about the coverage you have for your plan, and how to find a network provider. They are available 24/7. You can call this number if you have questions about whether the services you want are covered under your policy. It is available at any time, completely anonymous, confidential, and accessible. 


United Healthcare also has preventative care visits on an annual basis for all patients, during which time they will conduct screening and counseling for drug and alcohol abuse.

United Healthcare-Covered Addiction Treatment

Does United Healthcare Cover Rehab?

Yes, United Healthcare does cover substance abuse, depending on your policy. In almost all policies, you get coverage for:

  • Inpatient hospital detox
  • Outpatient detox
  • Inpatient rehab
  • Outpatient alcohol and drug rehab


Some policies have pre-certification requirements depending on what is provided by that facility and whether the facility is inpatient or outpatient. Still, in general, they have a wide range of substance abuse treatment facilities from which to choose.


Outpatient coverage

The United Healthcare outpatient rehab in Ft. Lauderdale coverage is very similar. The lower-level plans offer some short-term coverage, but you might have to pay out-of-pocket. After your deductible, the short-term plans typically charge between 20% and 30% for your outpatient procedures. If you pay for individual outpatient doctor appointments, the cost is limited to $50 per visit. 



Some drug and alcohol rehab plans necessitate medication. Medication might be given in the form of antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication for coexisting conditions. Medication might help with the initial withdrawal symptoms, especially those overcoming alcoholism. Medication could also be a part of your long-term program. In any case, certain medications and therapies may be covered by your insurance plan. You might find that medications are covered to a higher degree than inpatient programs depending on the coverage you have. We can help you evaluate what items are included and what has to be paid for out-of-pocket. 


What If United Healthcare Doesn’t Cover All of My Rehab Costs?

We work hard to help remove any barriers that might inhibit your chance at Living a happier, healthier life. United Healthcare does have limits on specific services, especially for drug and alcohol rehab. If your plan does not give you complete coverage, Prevail Recovery staff can work with you to find other ways, such as employee benefits or government assistance. We can even help you create payment plans for the costs not covered by United Healthcare Insurance. 

Learn How Long You Are Covered

How Long Does United Healthcare Cover Rehab?

The length of time for which you are covered is based on the level of care you have. Inpatient programs are typically 30-day increments lasting up to 3 months, and outpatient programs can last just a few weeks or a few months, depending on your circumstances. Some United Healthcare plans will offer coverage for inpatient or outpatient programs. Still, given that you may be responsible for an average of 25% of the cost, it is up to you to determine what length of time is most affordable and will give you the highest chance of success. This is something Prevail Recovery can discuss with you.


How to Find In-Network Rehab Centers for United Healthcare

If you are unsure which facility to use, you can go about it in one of two ways:

  1. First, you can find a facility that you know accepts United Healthcare insurance policies. Suppose you have found a facility like Prevail Recovery, and you like the layout, the policies, and programs they have, as well as the therapies they offer. In that case, you can work with the facility to determine what level of coverage you have with your policy and what alternative payment methods are at your disposal for anything not covered by the policy.
  2. Second, you can reach out to United Healthcare and ask for a list of approved facilities, although you will have to look into each one until you find the one you like most.


Do United Healthcare drug and alcohol treatment facilities have to be in-network?

When you look at different treatment facilities for United Healthcare drug and alcohol treatment,

they will be designated as in-network or out of network. As the names imply, in-network facilities are those within the United Healthcare network of approved medical facilities with UnitedHealthcare employed staff. Out-of-network facilities can still offer united healthcare drug and alcohol treatment, but they are privately run rehab centers.


If you have United Healthcare Insurance, the treatment centers you choose for drug and alcohol addiction do not have to be in-network. However, you might have a higher co-pay if you choose an out-of-network provider, and certain Services might not be included in your rehab treatment. That is why it is best to check what coverage you have for the facility of your choice. If you reach out to Prevail Recovery, we can help you verify what coverage and treatment methods are included in your insurance benefits and what the out-of-pocket cost might be for anything else.
