Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in treatment have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs have the staff or resources to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there's someone fighting drug abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might require treatment in whichever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure their needs may be met properly when in rehabilitation. Luckily, there are many drug treatment facilities which have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehabilitation the very best experience possible for any individual. Simply locate a top quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation program and inquire if it is feasible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug rehab center that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they like and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from many different drug and alcohol rehab programs in an effort to help clients afford treatment where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for treatment may be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider variables apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment programs provide payment assistance to help clients who might possibly not have sufficient money to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for their stay. For instance, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term program when in fact a long-term center is going to be the more appropriate choice. To determine what payment assistance can be available, say for example a sliding fee scale, check with the center for particulars.
