Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehab have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment programs have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more programs that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study data and the like are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment center which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.
