Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a treatment facility while undergoing treatment services. Even if this may seem perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders while in rehab in order to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as 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 expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they like and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug and alcohol treatment facilities to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
