Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to stay in a treatment facility while receiving rehab services. While this may seem ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if 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 rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside 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 form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a variety of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers to help help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's price for rehab may be different and another individual whose finances are better making them better able to pay the full cost of treatment. Registrars consider variables apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
