Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it.

Medicaid

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Detox 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.
