Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it.

In addition, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly 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 costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug treatment center which is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent center they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from numerous alcohol and drug treatment centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been doable initially.
