Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during rehab to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for 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 rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by numerous drug rehab centers to help help clients afford rehab where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehab might be different and another person whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers provide payment assistance to help clients who might not have enough money to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for their stay. For example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term facility when in reality a long-term center is going to be the more suitable selection. To determine what payment assistance might be available, say for example a sliding fee scale, check with the facility for particulars.
