Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities.

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative.
