What is Optum Insurance?

Optum is a healthcare company that provides a variety of services to help people stay healthy. Optum was founded in 1999 and has grown to become the largest healthcare company in the United States, with over 30 million members.

Optum is a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group (UHG), which was founded as Golden Rule Insurance Company in 1975. UHG also owns other companies that provide insurance coverage for customers who purchase insurance policies through their employer or directly from an insurance provider.

Does Optum Insurance Cover Drug Rehab?

Optum is a healthcare company that offers a variety of health insurance plans. The Optum sponsor group includes Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, and other companies.

It's important to note that drug rehab treatment is covered differently in every state, so it's best to check with your local agent or insurer upfront about specific coverage information for your area.

Optum generally covers the following types of drug addiction treatment:

  • Inpatient addiction treatment (long-term residential care)
  • Outpatient addiction treatment (daytime visits)
  • Drug detox (detoxification from drugs)

If you're looking for more information on how these treatments are covered under different types of plans at this time, please contact us directly.

Will Optum Insurance Cover Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

Inpatient addiction treatment is more intensive and lasts longer than outpatient treatment, but it's also more likely to be covered by insurance. If you have Optum Insurance, there are a few ways you can find out if your plan covers inpatient rehab:

  • Call the customer service number on your Optum Insurance card or log in to and check under "Enrollments" for details about your current health plan.
  • Call the admissions team at California Wellness directly, and we can verify your insurance benefits for you.

Does Optum Cover Drug Detox?

Optum Insurance is a health insurance provider that allows its customers to access the medical care they need through its network of providers. If you have Optum Insurance, then you are covered for addiction treatment. This means that if you enroll in an inpatient drug rehab center, your treatment would be paid for by your insurance company.

In addition to covering drug rehab, Optum also covers detoxification services (or "detox"). While detox is not considered an official stage of addiction treatment because it does not address the root causes of substance use disorder (SUD), it can help patients begin their recovery journey by removing harmful substances from their bodies and giving them time away from triggers associated with SUDs like alcohol and drugs.

How Long Will Optum Insurance Cover Substance Abuse Treatment?

Optum insurance policies cover substance abuse treatment for various lengths, so it's important to check your policy carefully before enrolling in a program. Some programs provide coverage for up to 2 years, while others offer extended coverage for up to 5 years. If you need clarification on how long your specific plan covers addiction treatment, contact the Optum 24/7 Helpline, and they will be happy to help answer any questions you may have about this topic.

Depending on various factors, including the type of program you choose and your insurance policy, Optum may help cover your drug rehab treatment.

The first thing that they will look at is the length of time you have been in treatment. If there is no set amount of time, then we will look at other factors, such as whether or not you are in an intensive outpatient program or residential facility. We want to know how long it has been since your last relapse and if any damage was done during this period.

If it has been less than 30 days since your last relapse, then we would only consider covering outpatient services because they are less expensive and easier for most people to access quickly after leaving hospitalization.
