Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, as the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a treatment facility while receiving rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in treatment have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders when it's in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to decide on a facility that's accustomed to helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and drug abuse problems that these clients face that might include a broader spectrum of services including medical treatment and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part 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 decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from a number of drug and alcohol treatment facilities to help help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for treatment may be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehab. Registrars take into consideration other factors besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
