Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehab services. Even though this might seem ideal it might not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in treatment need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly 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 can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person 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 within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they like and meet with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations regarding how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs provide payment assistance to help individuals who may not have adequate money to self pay for treatment or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. For example, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term program when in reality a long-term center is going to be the more suitable option. To see what payment assistance could be offered, such as a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the program for details.
