Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

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 kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if 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 apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from numerous alcohol and drug rehab centers in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and less than someone else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account variables apart from income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)
