The Admission Process
The admission process moves quickly and often results in same-day arrival for treatment:
- The Institute will conﬁrm an individual’s health insurance benefits and provide the best possible estimate of costs.
- A telephone interview with an admissions counselor will obtain the information the Clinical Team needs to conduct their review and provide approval for admission. (Hospitals may fax medical records.)
- The time for arrival is established and preparations made to welcome the new resident.
- Most commercial insurances accepted.
- Staff dedicated to maximizing insurance beneﬁts.
- Scholarships up to $8,000 available for those without insurance (sliding scale used).
- Financing plans can be arranged.
- Staff will assist with employer notiﬁcation, arranging FMLA leave and short term disability.
