Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab center which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they like and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations regarding how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for treatment could be different and somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
