In addition, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center which is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by many different alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers in an effort to help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally.

Registrars consider additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
