Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug treatment programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding 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 remain in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from a number of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs to help help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's price for treatment may be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into consideration variables aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment facilities provide payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. For instance, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in fact a long-term center is going to be the more appropriate option. To determine what payment assistance may be available, like a sliding fee scale, consult the program for details.
