In 2020, 82,254 people were admitted to substance use treatment centers.1 Of those admissions, 41% were admitted for heroin misuse, 32% were admitted for alcohol misuse, and 9% were admitted for marijuana misuse.1
About 21% of those admitted used a private health insurance plan, which could include United Healthcare of NJ plans, to pay for the costs of drug rehab and addiction treatment.1 If you have a United Healthcare of NJ plan and are struggling with addiction, you may be wondering whether your plan covers the costs of addiction care. Every plan is different, which is why it’s recommended that you verify your benefits and coverage before seeking care whenever possible.
Does United Healthcare Cover Rehab Centers in NJ?
According to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), almost all U.S. health plans, including UHC of NJ plans, are required to provide some coverage for mental health and drug abuse health care services.2 This federal mandate helps ensure that addiction treatment services like detoxification, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, and therapy are covered in some capacity under your plan. Please note that coverage levels will vary based on the plan you have, the treatment you need, and the facility at which you seek care.
