I called a rehab, and my wife is scheduled to check in tomorrow. They said it was fully covered by insurance, but are there any extra out-of-pocket costs that I should be aware of, like co-pays or hidden fees? I don’t want to be taken by surprise.
Joan B Call the admissions team and discuss your concerns with them. They can let you know if there will be out-of-pocket costs, so you are not caught off guard. Some facilities will wave co-pays depending on policies they have in place for financial hardship or limitations.
Olivia K The only way to really know is to ask the treatment facility. If they tell you that there is no out of pocket cost to you, ask for a letter explaining this information. This will protect you from any surprises in the future. Ask a lot of questions and understand what other expenses you will be responsible for (a common one is copays for medication).
