Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who needs to be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services during their rehabilitation procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehab facilities that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face so that they can not only become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services 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 Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all 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 may be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.
