Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who has to be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving treatment services. Even though this may appear ideal it will not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
