Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders during rehab to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug treatment centers who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center that's inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions concerning just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from numerous drug and alcohol treatment centers in an effort to help individuals afford treatment where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and another person whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
