ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and also other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Apart from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included 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 plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.
