Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and meet with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.
