Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who must be safely managed through detox services when intensely dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a treatment center while undergoing treatment services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehab need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse treatment is required. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the support they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just 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 may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most 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 insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab program which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers provide payment assistance to help clients who might not have adequate money to self pay for rehabilitation or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term program when in reality a long-term center will likely be the more ideal selection. To find out what payment assistance may be offered, like a sliding fee scale, check with the program for details.
