Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that needs to be safely managed through detox services when heavily dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services during their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the help they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehabilitation if other forms 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 check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, 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 insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment program which is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
