Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, 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 type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration variables apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
