Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehab facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehab have to have to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through 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 forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs in order to help individuals afford treatment where this may not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's price for rehab might be different and less than another individual whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
