Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding level of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in treatment need to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and also other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Apart from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

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

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations including just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment could be different and less than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full cost of treatment. Registrars consider other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
