Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who should be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services as part of their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who battle with drug use could have unique obstacles they have to conquer during treatment, which rehab professionals within the center they decide to take part in should be keen of so that a full recovery is achievable. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to choose a rehab that's familiar with helping seniors and older adults handle the unique life and drug use problems that these clients face which may include a broader spectrum of services including health care and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of preference.
