Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

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

Sliding Fee Scale

Registrars consider variables besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
