Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

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 programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment center which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from a number of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs to help help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for rehab might be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider variables in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
