Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers 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 rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of alcohol and drug treatment programs to help help individuals afford treatment where this might not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration other factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
