Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. While this may appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in recovery have to have to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from many different drug and alcohol rehab centers to help help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and less than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
