Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a treatment facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more centers that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and so on are now frequently obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual'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 rehabilitation 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 forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug treatment program which is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of drug rehab facilities in an effort to help clients pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For example, one client's price for rehab could be different and another individual whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
