Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery need to have a successful 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 treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders while in rehab to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind 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 expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by numerous alcohol and drug rehab programs in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation could possibly be different and another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
