Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations like how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from a variety of drug and alcohol rehab programs to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation might be different and someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation facilities provide payment assistance to help clients who might not have sufficient resources to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or total coverage for their stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term center when in reality a long-term facility will be the more suitable selection. To see what payment assistance can be offered, say for example a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the facility for details.
