Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. While this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment facility which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they like and consult with a rehab counselor 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 drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility available from a variety of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers in order to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full price of treatment. Registrars consider variables aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
