Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could 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 cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs.
