Will United Healthcare Health Insurance Cover the Cost of Rehab?
Serenity Placement offers help to those seeking assistance in ending alcoholism or drug addiction by helping them find a rehab center that best suits their their needs. However, just like some doctors and hospitals will only accept certain types of health insurance, the same can be said for drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment facilities. That’s right, contrary to what many people tend to believe, much if not all of the costs of your time spent receiving treatment at a professional rehab facility could be covered by your insurance provider.
When you contact Serenity Placement, make sure to let us know if you have health insurance with United Healthcare (or any other insurance company for that matter), that way we can find the right rehab center for you. By supplying us with that information when you call us looking for help with your or a loved one’s addiction, we’ll be able to pair you with a rehab center capable of maximizing the benefits United Healthcare offers in regards to ending alcoholism and drug abuse.
That said, by calling Serenity Placement, you’ll save hours of time, because we’ll do the heavy lifting for you. You won’t have to spend hours contacting rehab centers in your area just to see if they accept United Healthcare.. And even if you did find a rehab center that accepts United Healthcare health insurance, there’s no guarantee that facility is actually the type of rehab center provides the level or type of care that best suits your needs.
Using United Healthcare for Drug and Alcohol Rehab
One of the most common questions we get from those who call Serenity Placement is how they can actually apply their United Healthcare coverage so the potential costs associated with treatment at their chosen rehab center are covered. While contacting United Healthcare directly to ask a insurance representative questions about the different services or types of rehabilitation treatments at your rehab center of choice that will be covered by the insurance company won’t always yield worthwhile answers. You’re more likely to get useful information from a rehab center that has extensive experience working with United Healthcare.
Rehab facilities that have worked closely with United Healthcare for a longer stretch of time will know how to get approval for the services you need in order to successfully regain control of your life through sobriety. Serenity Placement will connect you with facilities that accept and work well with your health insurance provider, whether your coverage is through United Healthcare or another company.
Thankfully, you won’t need to do much in order to use your United Healthcare coverage for drug addiction and/or alcoholism rehab. Just supply the rehab facility of your choosing with your insurance policy information. After that, most rehab centers will handle all communication and documentation with United Healthcare for you in order to ensure that you are covered for the services and care they provide. Otherwise, there shouldn’t be much else or you to do in order to use your United Healthcare health insurance for addiction recovery.

As a major insurance provider, United Healthcare has several benefits available for those seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction that can make your road to recovery a little easier.
