If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.
