Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter.

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs.
