Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that has to be safely managed through detox services when intensely dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehab procedure. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehab have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment facility of preference.
