Drug Addiction Facts

  • An estimated 10 percent of 9 to 10 year olds have begun drinking alcohol.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, as the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while undergoing rehab services. Even though this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehab need to experience a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as 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 may be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment facility that's within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they like and speak with a treatment 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 certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of preference.
