  • 1 Catastrophic Coverage Plan (Indemnity)

There are also 2 types of Carve out plans:

  • United Behavioral Health (UBH)
  • Staywell

These two Carve out plans supplement some services needed for the range of medical plans, such as those related to UCLA Medical Group mental health insurance.

 UCLA Medical Group Rehab Coverage

Perhaps you may be wondering, “Does UCLA Medical Group pay for drug rehab?” The answer is yes, but the types of services available also depend if you’re a student or an employee, and which provider you will choose during assessment and treatment.

For students, UCLA Health insurance pays for counseling, doctor visits, and treatments with minimal co-pays under the UC Family providers. This can range from $10 up to $ 20 co-pays. Anthem Blue Cross Providers also have the similar benefits with a slightly higher co-pay, which ranges from $20 up to $ 40.

Whichever coverage they choose, they may refer to this page to know if rehab coverage is provided. For example, UCLA employees who chose Kaiser Permanente may avail of drug detox hospitalization and outpatient drug rehab services with a small co-pay.
