Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.
