Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab centers have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study info and so on are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind 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 may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within 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 in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that's in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from a variety of drug rehab centers in order to help individuals afford treatment where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full price of treatment. Registrars consider other factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
