Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are actually very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous drug rehab centers in order to help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and less than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full price of rehab. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
