Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders whilst in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug treatment facilities who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face so that they can not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Other than ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included 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 rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations including how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs to help help individuals pay for rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
