It’s possible that many addicts in need of treatment do not have health insurance, giving them the impression that treatment options are out of reach. This is not correct. There are ways to get into an addiction treatment center and begin your recovery from substance abuse even if you don’t have insurance.
Rehab can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $20,000 for basic treatment, according to Help.org. This expense, particularly on the off chance that a patient is without some type of protection inclusion, can be crippling monetarily to most Americans. The National Institutes of Health recommend a 90-day stay for the best possible outcome, and the longer a patient stays, the more expensive rehab can become.
Making Enslavement Treatment Open to All Without Protection
The goal of Recovery is to make addiction treatment accessible to everyone in the United States. In order to advance our goal of saving one million lives over the next century, one of our objectives is to ensure that every person in the country has access to a treatment facility within two hours.
We want to talk about ways that people who can’t afford treatment or don’t have insurance can get access to effective, evidence-based addiction care while we work toward that goal. Be aware that keeping alive is more important than worrying about how much treatment will cost in the end because every human life is valuable, including yours.
How can I get treatment using Medicaid?
Praxis is a chain of rehabilitation facilities owned by Recovery that offers treatment to people who have Medicaid insurance. In the United States, Medicaid is the insurance option offered by the federal and state governments to low-income individuals who are eligible. It is one of the four major government-managed healthcare providers in the United States, along with Medicare, Tricare, and ChampVA. As of 2017, 23% of Americans were covered by Medicaid, indicating that this large underserved population is in need of high-quality addiction treatment.
Through Medicaid expansion, some states in the United States provide additional support or have additional resources to help pay for addiction treatment outside of basic Medicaid. Through a health and human services office, some states can also help low-income community members find the care they need; Additionally, these offices interact with the Department of Health and Human Services, which is part of the federal government.
Other Funding Sources Besides Insurance
A list of single-state agencies is maintained by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and prospective patients can use this list to inquire about state-level resources. Grants are also available from SAMHSA to some applicants who submit applications online. Family and friends who offer to contribute to the cost of treatment are two other potential sources of funding for treatment. Another option is to set up a GoFundMe account so that others can contribute to your treatment. As part of a greater sense of social responsibility, some businesses will also pay for employees to receive the treatment they need to encourage a healthy work-life balance.
Scholarships and Grants Some organizations, like rehab facilities and government agencies, offer grants, full or partial scholarships, or both, to help potential patients get the treatment they need for addiction. For instance, a partnership between Recovery of Las Vegas and The Darren Waller Foundation has resulted in the award of numerous treatment scholarships. How much subsidizing presented through a grant or give can differ contingent upon how it’s set up and who is equipped for it. Most grants and awards for compulsion treatment cover either long term or short term treatment.
Before entering a rehab, patients should inquire about scholarships with the facility they are considering. Organizations like SAMHSA can provide block grants to patients who fall into particular risk categories, such as pregnant women, people who use IV drugs, and others.
Payment Plans for Rehabilitation
Recovery centre also provides access to payment plans to assist those who are unable to pay the full upfront cost of commercial rehabilitation. If you want to spread out the cost over time so you can keep up with the cost of rehab, a payment plan is a great way to finance it. If you’re actively looking for work after your rehab stay, there may be a six-month grace period.
