Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation center while receiving treatment services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders while in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one usually triggers the other.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

While detection of this issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone does not have any 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 take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and consult with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from a number of drug treatment centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's price for rehab could be different and someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
