Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in order to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's price for treatment may be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities provide payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. For instance, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term facility when in fact a long-term facility will likely be the more suitable option.
