Exploring Alternative Payment Options

While Tricare Insurance is an excellent option for covering addiction treatment costs, we understand that it may not be suitable for everyone. Therefore, at 12 South Recovery Center, we offer alternative payment options to ensure that individuals can access the care they need:

  • Private Insurance: In addition to Tricare, we accept various private insurance plans, allowing individuals to explore alternative coverage options based on their specific needs and preferences.
  • Self-Payment: For those without insurance coverage or who prefer not to use insurance, we offer flexible self-payment options, including sliding scale fees and payment plans tailored to individual financial circumstances.
  • Financing Arrangements: We understand that upfront treatment costs can be challenging for some individuals. That’s why we work with financing companies to provide affordable payment plans, enabling individuals to begin treatment without delay.
