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.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can 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 handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center that is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they like and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by many different drug rehab centers to help help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better making them more prepared to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
