United Healthcare/Optum Insurance Drug & Alcohol Coverage in Colorado

Does United Healthcare With Optum Cover Drug and Alcohol Detox?

During drug and alcohol detox, your body rids the addictive substances from your body. Treatment may include medications for withdrawal symptoms and substance cravings. You can also participate in an inpatient medical detox to reduce potential complications as drugs and alcohol leave your system. Detox is a critical part of the recovery process, and United Healthcare (UHC) with Optum covers either part or all of a person’s detox costs in most cases.

Your plan and coverage level will determine what you’ll be required to pay out-of-pocket for detox. Another factor relevant to your coverage is whether you go to a detox facility that’s in-network with UHC/Optum or out-of-network. You may need to go to an in-network partner treatment center with UHC/Optum, like The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake.

Benefits Offered From UHC/Optum for Addiction Treatment

Because of the Affordable Care Act, insurers must include mental healthcare, including addiction treatment services, as essential benefits. If you have a UHC/Optum insurance plan, you’ll receive a variety of options for healthcare services to meet your specific needs.

The company can provide a list of in-network detox and addiction treatment centers well-suited for you in terms of location, treatment levels, therapy methods available and amenities. If a priority is managing care expenses, UHC/Optum has a network of providers to make sure they connect you with a cost-effective option.

Will UHC/Optum Cover My Entire Stay for Addiction Treatment?

Addiction treatment programs vary in length, with treatment plans highly individualized to each person’s unique needs. Some common lengths of time people stay in treatment are 30, 60 and 90 days, but it can be longer. UHC/Optum will determine how long it will cover your rehab stay based on the severity of your addiction, whether you have co-occurring mental health disorders and whether you’ve tried other forms of treatment previously. Your insurance plan, the state you live in and whether the facility you’re going to is in-network is also relevant in determining the length of stay that will be covered.
