Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehab require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug treatment center that is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from a number of alcohol and drug treatment facilities to help help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs offer payment assistance to help clients who may not have adequate funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. By way of example, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in fact a long-term program will likely be the more ideal choice. To determine what payment assistance may be offered, such as a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the program for details.
