Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and so on are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is 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 strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations like just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they like and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.
