Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in recovery have to have to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program 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 treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.
