ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems their impairment impose on them.

Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the support they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center 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 strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug treatment program that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
