Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who needs to be safely managed through detox services when intensely addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in 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're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they like and consult with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
