Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who must be safely managed through detox services when intensely addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to have 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 discovery of the issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that's within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab program of choice.
