Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that has to be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously dependent to drugs, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services during their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while undergoing treatment services. While this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehab have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from numerous alcohol and drug rehab centers in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment may be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars consider other factors besides income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
