Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study data and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab 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 individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program that's within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from many different alcohol and drug rehab programs in order to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider other factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation facilities provide payment assistance to help clients who might not have enough funds to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for their stay. For example, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term facility when in fact a long-term center is going to be the more ideal option. To determine what payment assistance may be offered, such as a sliding fee scale, talk with the program for particulars.
