One of the most common reasons people delay getting themselves help is the cost. However, money doesn’t have to be a reason for you to continue suffering. Besides paying the full cost upfront with cash, there are three ways to get your recovery paid.
First, there is private insurance. Companies like Cigna, United Healthcare Community, and Blue Cross Blue Shield usually cover the partial or full treatment. To find out if your insurer covers rehab, check their website. You’ll usually find this information under the behavioral and mental health section.
Of course, private insurance is not an option for many Americans. When you’re uninsured, you should look into the Medicare and Medicaid programs. These are government-funded programs to provide specific demographics with access to healthcare. In Arizona, the Medicaid program is called AHCCCS. This can be a fantastic option for people, but funding is limited. You’ll have to check if your eligible for coverage, but filling out the application is worth the effort. Medicare and Medicaid can cover at least part of a short term treatment and other related costs.
Finally, if there’s no way for you to get any insurance at all, most treatment centers offer financial assistance in some form. Many centers will set up a payment plan for you, so you don’t have to come up with everything all at once. Others might offer a sliding fee scale, meaning you’ll pay based on what you have. Either way, you don’t have to let your finances hold you down. Call us today if you’d like to discuss your financial options.
