Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who should be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehab process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse treatment is required. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered 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 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 aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab program that's within their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment facility of choice.
