Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like 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 may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center that's in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
