Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and speak with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.
