Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could 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 take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug treatment center that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good center they like and meet with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative.
