Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from many different drug rehabilitation centers in order to help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could possibly be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars consider variables besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
