There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have a problem with substance abuse may have distinctive challenges they have to conquer while in treatment, which rehab specialists in the facility they choose to take part in must be keen of so that a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to select a rehab that's accustomed to helping seniors and older adults deal with the distinctive life and drug use issues that these clients face which can include a broader spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab center that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as 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 could be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
