Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into treatment as part of a court order to fulfill a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehab often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug and alcohol rehab specifications enforced on them in sentencing and also naturally when successfully graduating a drug and alcohol treatment center.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.
