How Does UMR Help with Benefits for Drug Rehab?

Do you have UMR health insurance and need addiction treatment? Perhaps it took you a few years to decide that you needed to get help for your addiction. You have finally decided to go to drug rehab, and you’re wondering what part UMR will play as you seek benefits to help pay for your drug treatment. While UMR is not an insurance company, it’s still an excellent part of your benefits package from your employer, and UMR can help you pay for drug rehab.

You may have seen conflicting information online about whether or not rehab is needed to recover from addiction. Many well-known websites claim that it isn’t. However, two American Journal of Public Health surveys has found that it is.

The surveys concluded that most people who attempted to recover from alcoholism without treatment were unsuccessful. It’s safe to assume that the same would be said for anyone needing to recover from drug addiction.

Both drug and alcohol abuse are serious public health problems in this country. It helps to know that you’re not alone while working toward recovery. That is just one of the benefits of going to rehab and receiving professional treatment.

The Role of UMR in your Drug Rehab Benefits

UMR is not your health insurance company, but it is a company that your employer hired to be sure your claims are paid quickly. UMR will ensure that you are not turned down for drug rehab benefits because those benefits are available to everyone because of The Affordable Care Act. For that reason, UMR will be an excellent resource for you when you want to go to drug rehab.

What Type of Drug Rehab Can You Get with UMR (a UnitedHealthcare Company)?

Some people worry that if they need a specific type of drug rehab, UMR will not assist them with covering their expenses, and that is not the case. You can get any drug rehab you need when you have an addiction, and that includes:

  • Prescription Treatment
  • Crystal meth Treatment
  • Alcohol Treatment
  • Cocaine Treatment
  • Marijuana Treatment
  • Opiate Treatment

UMR is there to assist you with ensuring your insurance company follows through with coverage for drug rehab, no matter what you need substance abuse treatment for.

Does UMR Cover Drug and Alcohol Detox?

Today, it is more apparent than ever that alcohol and drug detox are essential parts of addiction recovery. UMR will ensure that your health insurance provides you with benefits to help cover this service.

Detoxing is generally the first step most addicts and alcoholics take when they get treatment. It is essential because it will help you overcome the physical part of your addiction. Also, many detox symptoms can potentially become dangerous if left untreated. Professional detoxification can help you to avoid many complications.

Will Your Rehab Coverage Include Both Inpatient and Outpatient Therapy?

Individual policies vary, and the amounts covered may differ for each type of rehab. When you have UMR coverage, your policy usually includes inpatient and outpatient programs. Usually, people begin by going to inpatient treatment when possible. Afterward, they transition into an outpatient program for their follow-up treatment.

It’s crucial for you to know precisely what your policy states about your benefits. When you inquire about rehab, everything will be explained to you after your insurance is verified.

Your Coverage for Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment

If you need inpatient treatment, UMR will help you pay for it. Your policy selection determines the amount that they produce. Sometimes people have policies that cover the entire cost in full. Usually, companies like UMR will ensure that it’s mostly covered. You may have a small amount that you’re responsible for.
