Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that must be safely managed through detox services when intensely dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehab procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to level of care, because the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in treatment have to have to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.
