Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a number of settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, you don't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehab facility while receiving rehab services. While this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for 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 alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by numerous drug and alcohol treatment centers in order to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment could be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars take into account additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
