What Is UMR Insurance?
UMR (United Medical Resources) is a subsidiary of UnitedHealthcare and is a third-party administrator (TPA) of health insurance plans. As a TPA, UMR administers self-funded health plans on behalf of employers, unions, and other organizations.
UMR’s services often include claims processing, network management, utilization review, customer service, and reporting and analytics. They work with a network of healthcare providers to ensure that plan members have access to a range of medical services.
It’s important to note that UMR primarily serves as an administrator, and the actual insurance coverage and benefits may be provided by the employer’s self-funded plan. They work in conjunction with employers to customize and manage the healthcare benefits for their employees.
Does UMR Cover Mental Health And Substance Use Treatment?
Yes, UMR (United Medical Resources) typically provides coverage for mental health and substance use treatment as part of the health insurance plans they administer.
Coverage for mental health and substance use treatment may encompass services such as therapy, counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, prescription medications, and other forms of behavioral health care. The specific details of coverage can vary based on the particular self-funded health plan provided by the employer.
If you or someone you know is seeking mental health or substance use treatment and are covered by UMR, it’s advisable to contact UMR or review the policy documents with a Pacific Bay Recovery admissions specialist to understand the specific details of your coverage, including any copayments, deductibles, or limitations that may apply.
