Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than a lot of people in treatment have to have to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly 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 costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program that's within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by numerous drug treatment facilities to help help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and less than another individual whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
