Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehab center while undergoing treatment services. Even though this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment require to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program that's within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.
