Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehab services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type 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 alcohol and drug rehab 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 be eligible 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. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility which is within their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by many different drug and alcohol treatment programs in order to help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better making them better able to pay the full cost of treatment. Registrars consider variables in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment facilities offer payment assistance to help individuals who might not have sufficient money to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term program when in actuality a long-term program is going to be the more appropriate choice. To see what payment assistance might be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, talk with the center for details.
