Medicaid

Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab program which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's treatment plan.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehabilitation program which is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment centers offer payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have adequate funds to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for his or her stay.
