Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
