Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing treatment services. While this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in treatment need to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug treatment programs that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to enable them to not just become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse treatment is needed. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that's inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations concerning just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in order to help clients pay for rehab where this may not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and lower than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay the full cost of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment facilities offer payment assistance to help clients who might not have sufficient funds to self pay for treatment or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for their stay. For example, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program will be the more ideal selection. To see what payment assistance can be offered, say for example a sliding fee scale, check with the facility for particulars.
