Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings along with different treatment lengths and plans to suit the various needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehab services. While this may seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from many different alcohol and drug treatment programs in order to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's fee for treatment might be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration variables besides income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
