Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who has to be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services as part of their rehab process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse treatment is needed. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to 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 can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all 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 may be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.
