Outpatient

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Self Payment

In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance
