Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone who needs to be safely managed through detox services when intensely addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions during their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehab program that's in their network of providers and there may be other limitations including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out 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 rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.
