Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
