What is United Healthcare?
UnitedHealthcare (UHC) serves over 45 million people around the world and contracts directly with more than 1.2 million physicians and 6,500 hospitals and treatment facilities in the U.S. alone.1
But how do they handle drug and alcohol rehabilitation? Does UnitedHealthcare cover drug rehab programs? The answer is ‘yes.’
The good news is that the majority of people with a UnitedHealthcare insurance policy will have coverage for addiction treatment. However, insurance plans can be confusing, and it’s sometimes hard to tell what treatment options are covered by your plan and what you’ll owe out-of-pocket. This page will break down what is included in UnitedHealthcare plans.
