Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings and with different treatment lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance companies, you don't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total 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 because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehab center that's within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment center of preference.
