About United Healthcare/Optum

United Healthcare (UHC) is the nation’s largest healthcare provider. They offer a large array of policies and coverage that will assist in getting addiction treatment. UHC will be able to help in the payment process of services and upfront costs depending on policies and the someone’s location. 

UHC offers a variety of insurance plans that range from:

  • Health insurance plans
  • Small businesses
  • Medicaid
  • Medicare
  • Dental
  • Vision
  • Supplemental care
  • Short term insurance

United Health Group has two distinct business platforms: United Healthcare and Optum. This partnership offers more opportunities to cover mental and behavioral health treatment. Optum is an innovative company in health services, combining technology, expertise, and data to improve the health community and the health of people. 

If someone has insurance through UHC/Optum, we are able to accept coverage for the services necessary to recover. UHC’s preventative yearly care visits also include screening and counseling in a primary care setting for alcohol and drug abuse.

Is Rehab Covered by UHC/Optum?

A majority of UHC and Optum plans provide assistance for addiction treatment. This includes United Healthcare rehab facilities where one might get the treatments they need.

UHC/Optum is able to help cover various rehab facilities, and we are one of them. Additionally, UHC/Optum offers a variety of treatment services included in many of their plans, which often include: 

  • Inpatient hospital detoxification
  • Outpatient detoxification
  • Inpatient rehabilitation
  • Inpatient drug and alcohol abuse rehabilitation

A PPO network policy will usually offer a wide range of substance abuse treatment facilities. UHC/Optum has a big selection of rehab facilities one can choose from. Additionally, United Healthcare offers the most accessible and affordable form of insurance to cover rehab. 

Healthcare usually deals with medical problems, but mental health is also important to preserve. UHC ensures everyone is getting what they need to cover rehab facilities.

Does the Rehab Center Need to be In-Network?

The short answer is no. Oftentimes, treatment centers are not required to be in-network. However, this depends on someone’s plan. Some plans will require a steeper coinsurance percentage or any copays to see a provider out-of-network. In fact, some plans might not even cover out-of-network services. Therefore, it is best for someone to check with their provider to see what their current plan covers. 

Someone checking with their insurance representative about their coverage details will help them understand which treatment facilities they can use. They can better understand what the difference is between in-network and out-of-network health insurance.

Most health plans offer access to doctors, pharmacies, and facilities. Those that work with the insurance company are considered in-network. Out-of-network doctors, pharmacies, and facilities are outside of the specific provider network. This does not mean that nothing is covered if it is considered out-of-network. In fact, facilities out-of-network can still be covered. This provides someone with the assistance in paying for rehab facilities they need to start their life of sobriety. 

It’s advisable for someone to call the insurance representative today about their plan and what it may cover. Services under United Healthcare do not have to be in-network for it to be covered. If a person finds the right facility, especially within Launch Centers, we will help them find the most affordable treatment plan for them. We believe pricing should not be the reason someone doesn’t start addiction treatment.

Benefits of In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Coverage

In-network coverage with UHC offers benefits over out-of-network coverage. Primarily, the cost is lower for in-network coverage than out-of-network coverage. In fact, some UHC plans don’t offer any coverage for out-of-network care.

The following are benefits of receiving UHC in-network care:

  • The provider accepts your insurance plan’s rate, which saves you money.
  • Additional services are covered at a lower rate. For instance, an in-network provider might have a 20% co-pay versus 30% with an out-of-network provider. Thus, you save on any out-of-pocket costs.
  • The provider for in-network coverage meets certain standards for UHC plan members versus out-of-network care, which can vary in quality.
  • The process of obtaining in-network coverage is easier overall and requires less paperwork than seeking out-of-network care.

Of course, each plan can vary in terms of benefits. Therefore, it is best to speak to your insurance carrier directly about coverage before settling on a treatment center.

Outpatient Coverage

UHC/Optum’s outpatient rehab coverage offers similar benefits to inpatient coverage at United Healthcare rehab facilities. In fact, one of the company’s lower plans, short-term coverage, may help to cover drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

It is very beneficial for someone to check if their plan is able to cover outpatient programs. No matter what level of addiction or mental health issues someone may have, it is important to get treatments to help ease them into life again. UHC/Optum may be able to help them in getting the coverage necessary for any rehab facility, including ours. 

Launch Center offers the best services in our outpatient programs. In fact, if someone has gone through inpatient rehab, this is a recommended next step to take. Outpatient programs will help patients decrease any risk of relapse, even after inpatient treatment. Actually, temptations can still linger in the body and mind. So, it’s best to make sure they will be able to live a guaranteed life of sobriety.

  • Jenna S.

    Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
