ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they require in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from a variety of drug rehab programs in order to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's fee for rehab might be different and less than another individual whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account variables in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
