Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. Although this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, treatment centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is 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 available from a variety of alcohol and drug rehab centers to help help clients afford treatment where this may not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehab. Registrars consider variables apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
