Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this may seem ideal it will not provide the required change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug treatment programs possess the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study information and so on are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility available from many different alcohol and drug treatment programs to help help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could possibly be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars take into consideration other factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
