Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, as the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. While this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of surroundings than many people in treatment need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Other Languages

In each and every city in America there is someone struggling with substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may need rehab in whichever language it is they are fluent in so that their needs can be catered to properly while in treatment. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities that have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehab the best experience possible for anyone. Simply look for a quality alcohol and drug rehab center and find out if it is possible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone'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 people 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 people encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered 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 alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment program that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in order to help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's price for rehab may be different and somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
