Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Individuals can choose a quality program they like and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
