Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery need to have a successful rehab.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians acquire quality rehabilitation solutions in a rehab environment that's discreet and with rehabilitation professionals at their disposal who understand the unique challenges that they experience in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered by the challenges they face because of their sexual preference, a rehab that can help them handle these issues and give them the peace of mind that they've lacked before arriving in treatment can be a crucial aspect of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with 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 typically only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab center which is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility available from a number of drug and alcohol treatment centers to help help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for treatment might be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration other factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
