Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that must be safely managed through detox services when heavily dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from a variety of drug rehabilitation programs to help help individuals pay for rehab where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehab might be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment facilities provide payment assistance to help clients who may possibly not have enough resources to self pay for rehabilitation or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. For example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term program when in actuality a long-term center is going to be the more appropriate option. To find out what payment assistance may be offered, like a sliding fee scale, check with the center for particulars.
