Elevate Addiction Services accepts many UnitedHealthcare plans so clients can have a chance to get their treatment costs covered in our inpatient program. UnitedHealthcare is one of the largest insurers in the country, and many of its policies cover at least some degree of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
UnitedHealthcare has been ranked several times as No. 1 in its industry on the “World’s Most Admired Companies” annual list by Fortune magazine. The Minnesota-based insurance giant is going on 40 years in business, now employing nearly 260,000 individuals. Its network in the United States is connected to 1 million physicians and health care professionals, as well as roughly 6,000 hospitals and other health facilities.
If you’re looking for substance abuse treatment and you’re not sure what your UnitedHealthcare plan covers, give Elevate a call. We’ll be happy to review your insurance plan and tell you how much coverage you’d have if you were to join our inpatient addiction treatment program at one of our two Northern California locations.
What to Look for in Your UnitedHealthcare Plan
First of all, you’re going to have a better chance of being covered for our treatment here if your insurance plan is a PPO, not an HMO. You also have to find out if your plan has a MNRP designation for your substance abuse treatment benefits. MNRP stands for Maximum Non-Network Reimbursement Program, which uses a Medicare-based methodology to reimburse the provider.
If your policy carries an MNRP label for the substance abuse portion of your benefits, your coverage for our program will be weak or nonexistent, unfortunately. This is because your substance abuse treatment coverage is essentially going by Medicare rates.
Substance abuse benefits are very different than your general health plan, no matter if you’ve purchased UnitedHealthcare insurance individually or started a policy through an employer. As long as your plan is a PPO and doesn’t have an MNRP label, then there’s a good chance you could get your treatment covered at Elevate.
Overlooked Benefits of Being a UnitedHealthcare Customer
We encourage you to make full use of your UnitedHealthcare plan, even when you’re not actively seeking treatment. After all, insurance is something you’ve been paying for monthly, so you might as well get all that you can out of it.
UnitedHealthcare’s website allows you to view and keep track of your claims, and you can find an in-network physician, print ID cards, estimate the cost of a procedure, and more. The site also gives you access to plentiful healthy living resources (at no cost with your policy), such as:
- Healthy recipes
- Fitness and nutrition tips
- Advice on managing your own care
Additionally, UnitedHealthcare policyholders have two free smartphone apps to choose from, including one for students. Both apps help you manage your health care more diligently and expertly.
