Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment program while undergoing rehab services. While this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehab need to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare 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 a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can 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 handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a variety of drug and alcohol treatment programs in an effort to help clients afford treatment where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment could possibly be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
