Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings and with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, you don't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. Even if this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in recovery require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug treatment center that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug rehabilitation centers in an effort to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehab might be different and less than another individual whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full price of treatment. Registrars take into account variables in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
