What is the Cost of Rehab?

The fees for going to drug and alcohol rehab vary based on a number of factors. First and foremost, the type of facility you choose matters. Like most people, you’d probably prefer a facility where the quality of care is high. You’d like a smaller number of patients in the population to maximize how much attention you get. This is typical, and this type of facility is sure to provide you with excellent care.

Sometimes these types of drug and alcohol rehab centers are referred to as luxury rehabs. They do tend to cost more. However, because of your health insurance, there’s really nothing for you to worry about. A lot of the cost of your treatment should be covered.

The cost of your rehabilitation will also depend on the type of services you need. If you require detox services, you’re likely to pay more. This is an additional type of addiction treatment that’s separate from rehab. Detox can cost as much as $1,000 per day. Alcohol and drug rehab can end up costing a few thousand dollars more than that.

Of course, it also matters what type of rehab you need. An inpatient facility is going to cost more than an outpatient facility will. Still, if you need inpatient care, that’s an investment that you should make.

How Much Coverage Can You Expect With APWU Insurance?

Every APWU policy is different, but many people have excellent addiction treatment benefits. You may find that your policy will cover the entire cost of your drug or alcohol treatment. If it doesn’t, you may only have to pay a small amount of out of pocket.

You can contact APWU directly to talk with them about your benefits and coverage. However, it might be better to allow your provider to work with them. This takes another stressor away from you. Also, there are ways to maximize your benefits. The goal is for you to pay as little out of pocket as possible.

No matter what amount is left for you to pay, you have excellent insurance. You can rest assured that going to rehab won’t leave you financially strapped once your treatment is over.

Inpatient Vs. Outpatient Coverage With Your APWU Plan

Again, your APWU coverage will vary, depending on the plan you have. However, most people find that both inpatient and outpatient treatment are completely covered. Your plan may cover outpatient treatment fully, and inpatient treatment partially. This is typical as well.

After you go through inpatient rehab, you should know that your recovery doesn’t end there. You will probably need to follow-up with outpatient treatment afterwards. This is really important and your insurance provider understands how vital follow-up care is to your recovery.

APWU will provide you with separate benefits for both your inpatient stay and your outpatient rehab. This will all be explained you prior to getting started with your treatment.

Occasionally, APWU insurance plans don’t fully cover the cost of detox and rehab. In these situation, people are left with some portion of the expenses to cover themselves. There are different ways that you can take care of this bill.

You may want to consider taking money out of your savings. You can also talk with a relative and ask for help to cover your copayment or co-insurance amount. It’s possible that you could get a personal loan. Also, the drug and alcohol rehab may be able to work out a payment plan or another financing option.

The rehab program you choose wants to help you in any way possible. If you’re not sure how to cover this expense, talk with them prior to admission. They may be able to offer you some good suggestions that can help you.
