Hospital and Residential Treatment

If DHHS authorizes a client to receive alcohol and/or drug abuse treatment in a hospital or licensed residential treatment facility, the client or responsible party is liable for all charges related to that episode of treatment. If the client provides information about insurance or other payment sources, the hospital or treatment facility will bill those sources. If the client does not have insurance, or if insurance does not pay all charges related to the client's care, the client is liable for paying the treating facility directly.

If DHHS facilitates and authorizes the treatment, and the client cannot pay the facility, DHHS will pay the facility on behalf of the client. However, the client retains financial liability to repay DHHS in full.
