Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, as the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem perfect it will not provide the required change of surroundings than many individuals in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered 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 are not an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation programs provide payment assistance to help individuals who may not have enough money to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. By way of example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term center when in actuality a long-term program will be the more suitable choice. To determine what payment assistance might be available, say for example a sliding fee scale, consult the program for particulars.
