With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance plans, you don't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment program while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may seem ideal it will not provide the required change of surroundings than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to 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 costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from many different drug rehabilitation programs in order to help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's price for rehab might be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to spend the money for full expense of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug rehab centers offer payment assistance to help individuals who might not have enough funds to self pay for rehab or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. For example, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term center is going to be the more appropriate choice.
