Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it might not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should consult 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 treatment, but typically only inside 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 alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab program which is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by many different drug and alcohol rehab facilities in an effort to help clients afford treatment where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and lower than another person whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars consider other factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers offer payment assistance to help clients who may possibly not have adequate funds to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for their stay. By way of example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program will be the more ideal choice. To see what payment assistance may be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, consult the program for details.
