Counselling, study information and stuff like that are now frequently obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs 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 representative.
