Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers that can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through 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 rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center that is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous alcohol and drug rehab centers to help help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for rehab may be different and less than another individual whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration variables in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug rehab facilities provide payment assistance to help individuals who might not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for their stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term facility when in reality a long-term center will probably be the more suitable choice. To find out what payment assistance can be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the center for details.
