Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it.

When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply.

Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

By way of example, one client's fee for rehab might be different and less than someone else whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full cost of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional factors besides income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)
