At Sequoia Detox Centers, we offer medically-supervised drug and alcohol treatment. Having the right insurance plays an important role.

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.

Looking for a UHC drug detox center in Washington? Turn to Sequoia Detox Centers, the regional leaders in quality care. You can use your insurance to pay for any covered services offered in our United Healthcare detox programs in Spokane. In this way, we make it easier to enter and complete this first and essential stage of substance rehab.

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:

  • Evaluations for diagnosing SUDs
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Group and individual therapy or counseling
  • Case management programs

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:

  • You must foot the bill for all of the care you receive
  • You must pay the portion of your bill that your insurance company won’t cover

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.

What Our Clients Have to Say


As someone that previously utilized other detox/treatment centers in the in the Spokane area and out of state, Sequoia was by far the most comfortable and effective experience of them all. While the private rooms and other amenities are great, the comprehensive and personalized medical care from Dr. Knutsen, the counselor, pharmacist, and RN/CNAs are the true reason for the 5 star rating. I appreciate all Sequoia did to get me started on the right track.

Sarah J.

My name is Sarah and I highly recommend this detox center. They helped me so much I can't even tell you. I went from hell to heaven in a matter of days. I instantly felt safe when I got there. It is medically assisted but they do not force medication you do not want. The food was all catered. They are a private doctor owned facility and the people are really there to help. It was unlike any treatment facility I have been to in the past. I was there 5 days and am now 11 days sober. I could not have done it without their help.

Liliac L.

I had a wonderful experience at Sequoia Detox Center. The place is very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. They helped me through my issues and with their location being private it allowed me to focus on me and my road to recovery. Thanks SEQUOIA!

Do You Need a UHC Drug Detox Center in Washington?

How do you know if you or your loved one need drug detoxification services? These services may be essential for anyone affected by a substance use disorder. That’s particularly true if your SUD includes common symptoms such as:

  • Loss of control over your drug or medication intake
  • Rising tolerance to the effects of a given drug or medication
  • A powerful urge to use more of that substance
  • Withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting or cutting back your substance use

These symptoms are indicators of addiction, one of the two main aspects of substance use disorder. Together, they drive you to maintain an excessive level of drug or medication intake. To break free from this cycle, professional detox services are highly recommended. That’s true because the main goal of these services is to help you reach a substance-free state that forms the basis of your ongoing recovery.
