Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing treatment services. Although this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehab have to have to have a successful rehab.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into treatment due to a court ruling in order to meet part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehabilitation often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug and alcohol rehabilitation specifications enforced on them in sentencing and particularly of course when successfully completing an alcohol and drug rehab program.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type 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 expense of alcohol and drug 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 may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by a variety of drug treatment centers in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could possibly be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full price of treatment. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
