Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant.
