Self Payment

In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter.

Medicaid

Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program which is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant.
