Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Even though this may seem perfect it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if 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 cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug treatment facility which is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
