Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing treatment services. While this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in treatment need to have a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse treatment is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone does not have any 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 ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug treatment center that is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.
