Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as 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 rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.
