What Substance Abuse Treatment Does United HealthCare Insurance Cover?

United HealthCare (UHC) insurance may be able to cover substance use disorder (SUD) treatment in the state of Rhode Island. Depending on your plan, insurance may cover at least part of the cost of:

  • Medical Detoxification – A professional detoxification program is medically supervised to safely manage withdrawal symptoms while the body rids itself of harmful substances.
  • Inpatient or Residential Treatment – Patients will stay and become a full-time resident at the treatment facility where they will receive targeted care from addiction specialists. In most cases, patients will participate in individual and/or group therapy sessions. Treatment lengths will vary depending on a patient’s treatment needs.
  • Outpatient Rehab – A patient is not required to stay overnight in an outpatient program which allows them the freedom to continue with their day-to-day tasks. Treatment will include several therapeutic interventions and support services for a specific number of hours per week.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) – MAT consists of the use of FDA-approved medications, such as methadone or suboxone, to treat alcohol or opioid addiction. Behavioral treatment is another important component to this type of treatment.
