Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it.

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers.
