Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone who must be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health solutions during their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment centers have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and so on are now very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab program of choice.
