Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehab services. Even though this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.
