Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehab need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and speak with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers to help help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation might be different and another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration variables besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
