Insurance and Addiction Treatment

UHC Drug Detox Center in Washington

Over 500,000 people in the State of Washington have diagnosable substance use disorders (SUDs). This figure is the equivalent of more than 8% of the state’s total preteen, teenage and adult population. If you or your loved one are affected by an SUD, treatment resources are crucial to your ability to restore function and wellness. It’s also crucial to be able to pay for the treatment you receive. To meet their costs, many Washingtonians rely on health insurance.

One of the state’s top insurance providers is United Healthcare, also known as UHC. Many UHC plans provide coverage for substance treatment. In some cases, your insurance may pay for all of the recovery options you require. But other UHC policies may only pay for some of those options. In either case, a United Healthcare plan can help you gain access to treatment by making that treatment more affordable.

United Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Coverage

In today’s terms, SUDs are behavioral health issues. That’s true because they trigger harmful changes in your thoughts and feelings that, in turn, alter your everyday actions. Mental health conditions not related to substance use are sometimes included in this same broad category. However, some experts place them in their own separate category.

In Washington State, United Healthcare provides coverage for both SUDs and mental health conditions. However, this kind of coverage is not necessarily included in every UHC plan. That’s true because federal law does not mandate its inclusion in all health insurance policies. Still, many UHC plans to help you pay for the cost of drug detox and active drug treatment. By law, that includes every plan issued through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace. 

The extent of the coverage that UHC provides for substance rehab varies between eligible plans. For example, if you have a Washington Apple Health Medicaid plan, all forms of required care are covered in full. Detox is included in the required care category. So are services such as:

Several factors can affect your level of UHC coverage. One important factor is whether you purchase your insurance directly or get it through an employer. The size of your employer’s business may also matter. Another major factor may be the specific plan you choose from the options available to you.

The Importance of Finding an In-Network
United Healthcare Detox Center

There is a big divide in the health insurance industry: in-network versus out-of-network coverage. In-network terms apply to treatment providers that have pre-existing financial arrangements with a given insurance company. As a rule, these arrangements help ensure that you pay the lowest possible price for the help you receive. 

In contrast, an out-of-network provider has no pre-existing financial arrangements with your insurance company. The lack of an arrangement typically means one of two things:

In both scenarios, the outcome is usually higher treatment costs. Given this situation, it makes sense to use an in-network rehab provider whenever possible. 

Sequoia Detox is an in-network United Healthcare drug rehab in Washington. This means that you can pay the lowest possible price for the services you receive. Talk to us today to find out more about our in-network status.
