Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. Even if this may seem perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in treatment need to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug treatment centers which provide 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 help in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
