Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter.

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.
