Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's price for treatment may be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into account additional circumstances aside from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
