Turning Point of Tampa is thrilled to be in-network with United Healthcare Insurance Company, providing access to addiction treatment resources and mental health services for our clients.

Like other insurance companies, being in-network means those who hold plans with United Healthcare may be eligible for treatment services at our facility.

United Behavioral Health Substance Use Disorder Treatment Coverage

United Behavioral Health offers resources and tools through their provider network of facilities. Although benefit packages and coverage will vary for addiction services, rest assured Turning Point of Tampa is contracted as an in-network provider.

Employers usually offer free or cost share insurance to their employees. To learn more about how to register or sign up for employee benefits, contact your employer. Phone numbers and an access code is often given to employees to contact United Behavioral Health directly to learn about specific benefits.

Substance abuse treatment benefits are covered by most United Behavioral Health insurance plans. Most addiction center providers offer counseling that will address alcoholism and addiction. Many times co-occurring disorders such as anxiety and/or depression will be addressed by the professionals on staff.

Insurance coverage is offered for adults struggling with drug addiction or alcohol addiction. Behavioral counseling for stress-related to relationship issues, substance abuse, family issues, eating disorders, and work-life balance will be part of the clinical program at Turning Point of Tampa.

Turning Point of Tampa is not contracted with Medicare or Medicaid. Free resources are usually available through every community, and we guide those we cannot help to search out solutions.

Detoxification

Detoxification or “detox” is a medically supervised aspect of coming off drugs and or alcohol. Withdrawal is typically monitored to avoid severe and adverse reactions.

Your United Behavioral health plan may cover detoxification services such as symptom management, monitoring and care, intravenous hydration, medication, and other additional services. Some drugs require a detox for the safest withdrawal, for example, benzodiazepines. Withdrawal from benzos can result in seizures, coma or in severe cases, death.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment programs have been known to be very successful for addiction treatment. United Behavioral health plans can cover medication treatments for:

  • Opioid use disorder

  • Alcohol use disorder

The covered services often include medication appointments, behavioral treatment, medication checks, drug screenings, and the medication itself.

Inpatient Services and Residential Treatment

United Behavioral Health covers evidence-based inpatient and residential addiction treatment programs. In order to be covered the program must be:

  • Evidence-based, or scientifically proven

  • Medically necessary for your addiction or substance use disorder

Coverage for Inpatient Rehab
  • Behavioral treatments including cognitive-behavioral therapy

  • Counseling to address social and personal problems around addiction

  • Medication-assisted treatment for some situations including alcohol addiction or opioid abuse

  • Group therapy for social support and recovery skill-building

Day Programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs, and Outpatient Programs

United Behavioral Health covers Day programs, intensive outpatient programs, and outpatient programs.

An individual will often start their journey through recovery at the level they feel comfortable, while meeting clinical criteria. If someone fails at a lower level of care they will be screened for admission to a higher level of care.

Similarly, if an individual starts at the highest level of care, they will “step down” to lower levels based on their success with clinical milestones and achievements.

Addiction and Mental Health

Often, a person suffering from an addiction or a substance use disorder, will also have co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns. A counselor can help to discuss these concerns and offer prevention strategies, tools and answers to avoid further concerns.

It may be difficult to discuss your mental health with someone you do not know. Families may feel more comfortable speaking with a mental health support staff member to address these concerns. Keep in mind, at Turning Point of Tampa we have compassionate and effective staff who can offer support and guidance.

Does United Healthcare Cover Mental Health Services?

Some mental health services including anxiety, depression, and other clinical issues for adults are covered. A focus on mental health and addiction often coincide, and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) was put into effect to ensure those suffering from both are treated fairly.

Insurance coverage for mental health care services depends on your health plan benefits. You can sign in to your health plan account or contact the phone number on your member ID card to determine if you may be eligible for specific mental health care services. You should have access to resources and the support site online.
