Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab have to have to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab center which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in 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 rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in order to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and lower than another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
