Rehab that Accepts United Healthcare

Ready to find a rehab that accepts United Healthcare in California? At Solution Based Treatment, we help individuals like yourself get the help you need to overcome substance use disorder.

Ready to get started? Here’s what you should know about getting treatment with United Healthcare insurance coverage.

United Healthcare Insurance Plan Options

United Healthcare has several insurance plan options. It has an employee assistance program (EAP), and it also has personal or family plans through employers like PPO and HMO plans. The plan you have will dictate the kind of treatment you can receive for substance use disorder. It will also dictate where you can receive treatment and how much you have to pay out of pocket. For example, the United Healthcare Marketplace plan options offer unlimited primary care and virtual urgent care for $0. Additionally, some plans have no deductible, and all individual and family plans set a copay for your visits (so you know what you’ll pay upfront).

Addiction Treatment Options

Many of UHC’s plans cover in-network rehabs that take United Healthcare, and some also have out-of-network coverage. At Solution Based Treatment, we can verify your benefits to see if UHC covers 100% of your treatment program.

United Healthcare for Medical Detox

United Healthcare may pay for 100% of the cost of medical detox. Your specific insurance plan will determine what you pay; we can verify your benefits, or you can sign into your UHC account to get cost estimates for the detox that accepts United Healthcare you’re interested in. Solution Based Treatment offers alcohol detox, opioid detox and other prescription drug detox programs that may be covered completely by your insurance.

United Healthcare Coverage for Residential Treatment

Residential treatment is normally anywhere from 30 to 90 days long and requires you to live in the facility. This intensive, supportive program is often covered by UHC insurance, but your exact coverage will vary based on your plan.

United Healthcare Coverage for Outpatient Treatment

As a rehab program United Healthcare insurance may cover, we offer outpatient treatments that can help you get the care you need without the requirement to live on-site.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) require you to visit a treatment center or other facility for several hours a day a few times a week. This outpatient program option may be covered by UHC.

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are best for those who don’t qualify for inpatient care but who could benefit from hospitalization. Partial hospitalization programs take place for most of the day, up to seven days a week.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is typically covered by insurance providers, including UHC. Outpatient treatment programs may include group therapy, individual therapy, medication management, and other services. With a rehab or detox program United Healthcare insurance covers (either as an in-network or out-of-network service), some or all of your care may be paid for.

Does United Healthcare cover inpatient mental health?

Do treatment centers need to be in-network?

Some UHC policies will require you to see a provider who is in-network. However, if you have a United Healthcare Options plan, a PPO, then you may seek care from an out-of-network provider. Keep in mind, however, that the coverage for out-of-network care may be less than for care in-network.

How much does United Healthcare insurance cover?

Coverage varies based on your plan. Our Admissions Department can let you know your coverage. You can also check your member benefits, which will go over your deductible, co-pays, and total out-of-pocket maximum.

Sometimes, your costs won’t be completely covered by your insurance provider. In that case, call our Admissions Department at (833) 999-1941 to find out how much coverage you do have and about your options for paying for your care. You may be able to pay with cash, card, check, or through other methods.

How is a United Healthcare HMO different from a PPO?

The primary difference between an HMO and a PPO is that you have to stay in-network with an HMO. With a PPO, you can choose an out-of-network provider, but your insurance carrier may not cover everything.

Can you get a single case agreement with United Healthcare?

You may be able to get a single case agreement with United Healthcare depending on your plan. You can find all Continuity of Care forms on the UHC website under “California.”
