Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

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 aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as 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 restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
