Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehab.

Gays and Lesbians

It is crucial that gays and lesbians receive quality treatment solutions within a rehabilitation environment that is discreet and with treatment professionals available to them who comprehend the distinctive problems which they experience in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians may also be triggered because of the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a facility which can help them handle these problems and give them the peace of mind that they've lacked prior to arriving in rehabilitation is usually a crucial part of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is needed. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment programs have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more centers that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study info and so on are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program which is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of alcohol and drug rehab programs to help help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's price for treatment might be different and somebody else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
