Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face.

Medicaid

Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehab center that's within their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.
