State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Individuals might have to take part in a drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a number of drug rehabilitation programs to help help clients afford rehab where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's price for treatment could be different and less than another person whose finances are better making them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)
