Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. While this might appear perfect it might not provide the required change of surroundings than many people in rehab have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab centers have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study info and so on are now very often accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and meet with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from numerous drug treatment programs in order to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable initially. For example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and less than someone else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
