Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy.

If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities.

Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative.
