UMR Insurance for Drug Detox

UMR insurance logoUMR is a United HealthCare company and the largest third-party administrator (TPA) in the U.S. UMR works closely with clients who have self-funded employee benefits plans to ensure that they receive flexible benefits that meet their needs.

If you are addicted to drugs or alcohol and you have UMR insurance coverage, your cost for drug and alcohol detox may be partially or entirely covered by your health insurance benefits. UMR may also ensure that you have partial or full coverage for additional addiction treatment services like rehab, IOP, or aftercare.

If you’re suffering from addiction, we’re here to help you verify your UMR insurance coverage and get the treatment you need to fully recover. Insurance coverage can be confusing, but you don’t have to let that keep you from an addiction-free life.

Although the best way to get updated information about your insurance benefits is by calling UMR and speaking with them directly, here we provide helpful answers to some of the most common questions about using UMR insurance coverage for drug and alcohol detox.

If you’re ready to verify your insurance and determine your benefits and coverage for addiction treatment at Briarwood Detox Center, please call our admissions team at (888) 857-0557 or fill out the insurance verification form on this page and we will contact you shortly.

Frequently Asked Questions About UMR Coverage for Detox

Will my UMR insurance cover drug and alcohol detox?

If you need drug detox to recover from your addiction, UMR will ensure that your health insurance helps you pay for it. Since detox is usually an essential part of the addiction treatment and recovery process, it is most often covered by insurance, although the extent of your coverage will vary depending on your insurance policy.

What types of detox does UMR cover?

UMR can help you access inpatient and outpatient detox programs, however, the degree of coverage may be different for each type of detox treatment as well as the policy you have purchased. Our admissions team can help you determine the extent of your coverage for detox treatment since this varies on a case-by-case basis.

How can I verify my UMR insurance coverage?

To verify your insurance coverage for drug and alcohol detox, you will need to call Briarwood Detox Center and speak with our admissions team.
