Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that should be safely managed through detox services when intensely dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services during their treatment process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse treatment is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment centers have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Therapy, study information and the like are now very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.
