Article Summary

How do you pay for Rehab?

Being able to successfully recover from drug or alcohol addiction and recover one's quality of life is a gift that you cannot simply put a price tag on. However, the reality is drug rehab programs aren't able to stay open and deliver treatment without having to pay for the things that it takes to keep such a facility open and running. So when an individual finds a drug rehab program which seems like a workable treatment option they will have to either pay for treatment services from their own pockets or through others means.

Insurance, Medicaid and Medicare

The cost of rehab is variable, all depending on which rehab is being considered. If money isn't an obstacle and the individual is paying for the drug rehab program out of their own pocket, they can choose a luxury facility perhaps. Most individuals are not going to be able to pay for such a luxury facility, and some may have to depend on what their insurance will cover for example. If someone has private insurance they will either be covered for a short-term stay or possibly a long-term stay if their insurance agrees to cover this. Treatment counselors at long-term rehabs will help speak with insurance companies to explain why long-term treatment is needed, which can be very helpful in convincing them to cover such a stay. Medicare and Medicaid cover certain types of rehab as well, and if an individual finds a program they like it is very possible that this will be covered by this type of insurance as long as their primary care physician recommends it.

Self Pay and Payment Assistance

If an individual has to self pay, this can be very difficult to do in most cases because most resources have been exhausted because of substance abuse. If an individual does have some funds available or can receive help from a family or friend to obtain money to cover the costs of rehab, many drug rehab programs can offer some type of payment assistance to make this a bit more feasible for them. For example, if an individual can provide information to the drug rehab of choice regarding their income and circumstance it is very likely that treatment can be offered at a discounted rate. This is very often referred to as a sliding scale fee, and potential clients can inquire about this when they speak with their treatment counselor when signing up for rehab.
