Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who should be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health solutions during their treatment process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.
