Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may seem perfect it will not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders while in treatment to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities who can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not only become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may 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 covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program that is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from many different drug and alcohol rehab facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of rehab. Registrars consider variables apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
