Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant.
