Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that should be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health solutions during their rehabilitation procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 expense of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of choice.
