Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving treatment services. Although this may appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in treatment require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab facility that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment could possibly be different and someone else whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
