Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders during treatment to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Other than ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within 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 sort of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from a variety of alcohol and drug rehab centers in an effort to help individuals afford treatment where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehab might be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehab facilities offer payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have adequate money to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. For instance, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term center when in fact a long-term program will likely be the more suitable selection. To see what payment assistance may be available, like a sliding fee scale, talk with the center for particulars.
