Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehab center that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and less than someone else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)
