Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to be in a treatment facility while receiving treatment services. Even if this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals 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 centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by many different drug rehabilitation centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could be different and less than another individual whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
