Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment center which is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment programs offer payment assistance to help clients who might not have adequate money to self pay for rehab or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. For instance, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program is going to be the more appropriate choice. To find out what payment assistance could be available, like a sliding fee scale, talk with the facility for particulars.
