Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who needs to be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services during their rehab procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they need in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, 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 form of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation 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 expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.
