Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehab procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may appear ideal it might not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehab have to have to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they prefer and speak with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as 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 consultant. There could be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous drug and alcohol rehab programs in an effort to help individuals afford treatment where this might not have been doable initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs provide payment assistance to help clients who may not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for their stay. By way of example, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program will likely be the more suitable selection. To determine what payment assistance can be available, for instance a sliding fee scale, consult the program for particulars.
