Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehab services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug rehabilitation programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and also other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the help they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehab centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from many different alcohol and drug treatment programs in an effort to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and less than another person whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars consider other factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation centers offer payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have enough resources to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for their stay. For example, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term program when in reality a long-term facility will be the more appropriate option. To determine what payment assistance could be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, consult the center for details.
