UMR Rehab and Internet Addiction Coverage

At first glance, an addiction to the internet may not seem as serious as other types of addictions. However, this condition can affect your life dramatically if you are unable to overcome it. Without treatment, you may find yourself losing productivity at work, experiencing problems with interpersonal relationships, facing health concerns and much more.

You can recover from internet addiction with professional treatment. However, this treatment can be expensive, especially if you don't qualify for benefits under your health insurance policy. If you have an insurance policy through UMR, consult the information below to determine whether you may qualify for UMR Internet Addiction Coverage. 

About UMR

UMR is not a traditional insurer. Instead, the company provides assistance and support to employers with self-funded insurance plans. Thus, any policies you purchase through UMR were actually designed by your employer. As a result, UMR insurance policies vary considerably with regard to structure, coverage options, cost-sharing requirements and other characteristics.

To determine whether you qualify for UMR Internet Addiction Coverage, you must consider the specifics of your plan. Consult your plan documents or contact the plan administrator for assistance.

Understanding Your Responsibilities

Even if you qualify for UMR Internet Addiction Coverage, you must still satisfy certain requirements in order to receive benefits. Depending on the options chosen by your employer, some of these requirements may include:

  • Medical Necessity - Some plans won't cover your treatment unless it qualifies as a medical necessity under the terms of the policy.
  • Precertification - Certain types of treatment may require precertification in order to be covered. This means that you must request permission from the insurer before beginning treatment.
  • Choice of Provider - Many plans include a preferred provider network. Choosing providers from this network will help to ensure that you receive the maximum possible UMR Internet Addiction Coverage. In some cases, out-of-network care may not be covered at all, so choose your providers carefully. 
  • Cost-Sharing - Most plans will require you to pay some of your own treatment expenses. Depending on the specifics of the plan, you may need to meet a deductible, pay coinsurance or make copayments when you receive certain services. All cost-sharing requirements will be suspended once you have reached your plan's out-of-pocket maximum for the year.
