Amanda Bynes

Stability Comes at a High Price

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes is ensconced at the UCLA Medical Center -- where she'll be for at least 60 days and worst case scenario a full year.  And guess what it costs ... $3,500 a day.

Sources involved with Amanda's treatment tell TMZ ... the cost is so high because it covers not just treatment, but living expenses as well.  To put this in perspective, you can get a deluxe executive suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in nearby Beverly Hills for $815 a night.

TMZ broke the story ... a judge ruled on Friday that doctors could keep Amanda on a long-term hold for up to a year, although the goal is 60 days ... after which she'd go home to her mom.

Now for some lump sums.  60 days at UCLA Med Center will cost $210,000.  A full year would cost $1,277,500.  As for Amanda's insurance, she's a member of SAG but we're told the policy will only cover a small portion of the cost.

Why is this news? Every private American hospital charges thousands per day for any condition. What country are you living in, TMZ?

Stop reporting on this girl - slow news days happen but stop relying on her for your money and ratings and hopefully she will get better soon and not need to spend a small fortune to recover from her condition. You really have sunk to a new low TMZ

That seems like way too much. I bet she can fight that though. She didn't ask for the help so they can't make her pay. What would the court do if that happened?

I don't really know how it all works where you are, but does she have to pay that even tho she isn't been given a choice to be there or not?

So what is TMZ saying that Amanda's parents should not spend $1,277,500. on getting Amanda healthy? That they should bargain shop for her care? Perhaps TMZ would want Amanda in a facility they can get pictures of her in a ward or in some Malibu care center that offers nothing more than a spa retreat instead of medical care?
.
What good is looking for cheaper care just to save money rather than money well spent on proper care.

Psychiatry is the biggest scam. She is probably sleeping in some dorm and being ignored by the staff in the TV room all day. Then the psychiatrist will come in for five minutes and ask her a few pointless questions and up the meds and leave. If she had no money, she would maybe just be sent to the state hospitial which I doubt costs that much.


UC Money Go Bye Bye Medical Center. This is one of the perils of being rich. They will keep you till they can get all the money they can from you. Meanwhile their treatments do nothing but make you worse.

Why don't you leave Amanda alone and stay out of her business so she can concentrate on getting better? It's not her fault this happened to her. You are adding to the negative stigma of people with mental disorders.

Well she may as well pay for it. All she was doing with her money was buying dope, bongs, and wigs.

SAG should get better insurance for its members. Maybe even have there own rehab because so many members use them.
