Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, as the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in treatment require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's in their network of providers and there could be other limitations like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab program of choice.
