Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who should be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehab procedure. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse treatment is needed. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they need in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.
