Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while undergoing treatment services. Even though this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab 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 might qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility that is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they like and speak with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a number of alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehab may be different and somebody else whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
