Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving rehab services. While this might seem ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in treatment need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities that can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they like and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to 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 might be some limitations regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
