Alumni Client Family Testimonial

I feel like Cornerstone gave him all the right tools. He knew how to do it. It was something we could have never done. I just could totally see kind of a personality change in him of wanting, and knowing, that he could achieve and do higher things and greater things. That has to be the people (at Cornerstone).”

FAQs About United Healthcare

Get answers to the most commonly asked questions about United Healthcare rehab coverage.

Does United Healthcare cover drug rehab?

United Healthcare offers a wide range of policies with varying degrees of coverage for addiction treatment. The coverage amount and upfront costs differ from policy to policy. The location of the policyholder also has an impact on how much coverage they have.

The company has a dedicated division for people recovering from addiction, known as United Behavioral Health. The division provides confidential services for substance use disorder victims to speak with a counselor. UHC’s annual preventative care visits include screening and counseling in a confidential setting for victims of substance use disorder. You can trust that UHC health insurance covers some form of drug and alcohol rehab

What types of drug rehab does UHC cover?

United Healthcare rehab coverage includes rehab for alcoholism, dual diagnosis, and illicit drug and prescription drug addiction. Most UHC insurance plans cover treatment in both in-network and out-of-network facilities. 

The company also offers short-term medical plans that may provide treatment coverage for substance use disorder.

United Healthcare drug rehab may include detoxification, medication to control withdrawal symptoms, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, psychotherapy and behavioral counseling, and follow-up treatment.

Detox is often the first stop for someone who is using illicit drugs. Detox duration varies from patient to patient. This phase also involves other therapies to monitor and control withdrawal symptoms.

The next step of drug rehab involves behavioral therapy and counseling to address patients’ psychological and emotional needs. Different treatments help patients recognize problems related to their drug abuse and the behaviors that trigger it. 

The most common treatment methods are cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and multidimensional family therapy.

There are several types of United Healthcare addiction treatment programs including outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and partial hospitalization. Patients requiring the most intensive level of care are recommended to enter an inpatient or residential rehab program.

The length of United Healthcare addiction treatment varies depending on the severity of the patient’s condition and recovery rate. Outpatient programs are shorter than inpatient programs and last only a few weeks to three months. Inpatient programs can take about three to 12 months.

Does UHC Cover Rehab for Alcohol Addiction?

UHC health insurance policyholders can seek treatment for alcoholism in both in-network and out-of-network rehab centers. United Healthcare alcohol rehab includes both inpatient and outpatient programs. 

Inpatient treatment programs are recommended for individuals with severe alcohol use disorder as they require intensive care 24/7. Outpatient is recommended for people with mild to moderate alcohol use disorder or who cannot attend inpatient.

Outpatient programs are designed for people who cannot neglect day-to-day or familial obligations. Patients seeking outpatient treatment for alcoholism must be highly motivated to reach sobriety. This treatment does not require patients to live in a rehab facility. Instead, patients live in their homes and engage in daily rehab programming.

As a part of a relapse prevention plan, many treatment centers require patients who have completed inpatient rehab to attend a few weeks of outpatient rehab. The first phase of United Healthcare alcohol rehab involves medically-assisted detoxification from alcohol.

The final phase of United Healthcare alcohol rehab focuses on the emotional and psychological recovery of the individual. Patients have to participate in one-to-one sessions with their counselor during this phase.

In these sessions, patients learn vital coping skills and identify triggers of alcohol abuse. The sessions are also meant to explore underlying programs that may have caused the individual to resort to alcohol abuse. 

In the final days of rehab, family therapy sessions help the patient identify and address conflicts within the family to return to an emotionally secure environment.

Does UHC Provide Coverage at Co-occurring Disorder Facilities?

According to SAMHSA’s 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than 9 million adults in the United States are diagnosed with a co-occurring disorder yearly. The chances of developing a co-occurring disease are the highest among people with a mental illness.

UHC insurance also covers treatment for co-occurring disorders. Individuals with dual diagnoses can seek various remedies, including partial, sequential, and parallel treatment.

How many times will UHC cover drug rehab?

Relapse is a common occurrence in the treatment of substance use disorders and should not de-motivate individuals in recovery. 

UHC will pay for rehab as many times as deemed medically necessary. If addiction treatment is covered under your UHC plan, you can go to rehab again after relapse as long as you have paid your annual deductible. 

How do I find out what my policy covers?

The rehabilitative services covered under UHC insurance and the coverage amount vary from policy to policy. All UHC plans offer some form of drug and alcohol rehab coverage. 

If you are seeking United healthcare addiction treatment in Scottsdale, you can have Cornerstone verify your insurance to determine what’s covered under your UHC plan.
