100% Confidential.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment programs possess the staff or wherewithal to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more programs that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study information and so on are actually frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered 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 Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
