Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Other than ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab 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 whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, 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 insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by a variety of drug and alcohol rehab facilities to help help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab may be different and another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
