Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance plans, there's no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug treatment facility that's in their network of providers and there could be other limitations like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of alcohol and drug rehab centers to help help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab might be different and somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars take into consideration other factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
