Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab centers possess the staff or resources to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study info and so on are actually frequently obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug treatment center that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of drug treatment facilities in an effort to help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been doable initially. By way of example, one client's fee for rehab may be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances aside from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
