Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study info and stuff like that are now frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from a variety of drug rehab programs in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for treatment might be different and somebody else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
