Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that must be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment center that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare 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 rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab center that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and meet 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 costs of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
