Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type 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 expense of alcohol and 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 might qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover 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 health care insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all 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 could be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug and alcohol treatment programs in order to help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's fee for treatment might be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full price of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
