Outpatient

Fortunately, there are lots of drug treatment facilities which have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol rehab the most effective experience possible for anyone.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by many different drug treatment programs in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been possible initially. For example, one client's price for rehab might be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to spend the money for full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider other factors besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)
