Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to level of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation center while receiving treatment services. While this might seem perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in recovery require to have a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and also other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center that's within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from numerous alcohol and drug treatment facilities in order to help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
