 Optum for Medical Detox

Optum typically covers medically-supervised detox programs, which involve the use of medication and other treatments to help individuals manage the physical and emotional symptoms of withdrawal from drugs or alcohol. In some cases, Optum may also cover the cost of inpatient or residential detox programs, which provide a more intensive level of care and support.

Optum and Medically-Assisted Treatment:

 Optum Coverage for Residential Treatment

 Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

 Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)

Partial hospitalization typically involves staying at the center for several hours a day. Partial hospitalization is ideal for those who need a higher level of care than outpatient treatment but do not require 24-hour supervision.
