Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, because the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a treatment facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery need to experience a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study data and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and speak with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers to help help individuals afford treatment where this may not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehab may be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
