Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations like just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale
