Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

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

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also 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 consultant. There might be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab 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 stay in the treatment center of preference.
