United Healthcare is among the nation’s largest health care providers, and offers individual or employer-based health plans, as well as plans through Medicare and Medicaid. Your plan may be a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO plan such as United Healthcare Select or Select Plus, requiring you to visit an in-network facility, or it may be a Preferred Provider Organization, or PPO plan, such as United Healthcare Choice or Choice Plus with access to out-of-network providers.
The amount of your policy’s deductable and the number of your co-payments will also impact your coverage amounts. In general, plans with the lowest monthly payments have high deductibles and cover approximately 60% of medical costs. Plans with lower deductibles, or up to 90% of medical cost coverage may have much higher monthly payments. United Healthcare’s benefits for detoxification services and withdrawal medications will vary depending on your history of alcohol and drug abuse, as well as your specific plan coverage and treatment needs, such as medications required, or the length of your stay.
Fortunately, since the 2008 Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, health insurance plans must offer protections and benefits to the insured for substance abuse treatment that equal those offered for general medical or surgical care. Limits to substance abuse treatment covered by this law include:
• Financial Limits – deductibles and co-payments can be no more restrictive
• Treatment Limits – number of days or visits covered must be the same
• Care Management – pre-authorization requirements can be no more restrictive
