Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and speak with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative.
