If you’re here, you’ve already taken the first step toward a lasting, meaningful recovery from addiction. As you or your loved one begins the journey toward recovery, you may become concerned about the potential financial burden of rehab and treatment. Perhaps you’ve been avoiding treatment altogether because you’re worried that you’ll end up overwhelmed by medical bills or debt.
In fact, if you’re a member of an UnitedHealth Group health plan, then you already have the tools you need to seek out affordable and effective treatment for your addiction. Your UnitedHealth Group health plan includes resources for locating treatment as well as coverage that will assist you in paying for various forms of addiction treatment, including inpatient and outpatient rehab programs, therapy, and medication.
What Does My Plan Cover?
Based in Minnesota, UnitedHealth Group contains the largest health provider in the U.S. and provides insurance coverage for millions of Americans. UnitedHealth Group will provide coverage for addiction treatments, so long as they meet certain criteria.
As a member of an UnitedHealth Group health plan, you have access to benefits that will cover many of the costs associated with treating addiction. It’s important to understand that your exact benefits will depend on your plan, as well as your diagnosed medical needs.
Your UnitedHealth Group plan will cover a program of treatment that is considered medically necessary. In many cases, you’ll begin the treatment process by visiting a doctor in your UnitedHealth Group coverage network who can refer you to a treatment program that’s also in your health plan’s network.
