Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab due to a court ruling in order to meet a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehab frequently receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehabilitation requirements enforced on them in sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully graduating a drug rehabilitation facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. 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 speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers to help help clients afford rehab where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's price for treatment might be different and another individual whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
