Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug treatment programs that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse treatment is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from 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 rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality 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 such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.
