Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to 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 expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as 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 can be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.
