Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, you don't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. Although this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in treatment require to have a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary 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 appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to 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 may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can check 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 will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of alcohol and drug treatment centers in order to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for treatment could possibly be different and another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
