Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it might not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution simply because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and meet with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in order to help clients afford treatment where this may not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehab might be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account other factors besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehab facilities offer payment assistance to help clients who might possibly not have sufficient resources to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. By way of example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term center when in fact a long-term facility will likely be the more suitable choice. To determine what payment assistance might be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, consult the center for details.
