Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who should be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for 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 treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program that is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to 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 representative. There might be some limitations concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.
