Amanda Bynes

Stability Comes at a High Price

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.

Welcome to the real world where health care costs are out of reach for us little people. Maybe this nut case will do some good by shinning a light on out of control medical costs....

Must be nice to be able to get decent healthcare and actually afford it. The us healthcare system is a joke.

It costs so much because health care costs are out of control in this country. Living expenses?

Stop buying the BS these people are shoveling.

There's no reason her costs, or anyone else's should be this high. You have greedy doctors, greedy hospitals, and greedy insurers making health care an abomination. The saddest and craziest thing is that real people with real problems would are bankrupted by such a draconian system.

Makes you wonder who the crazy ones really are in this scenario.

FU to all the US hospitals playing this game.

You can blame OBAMACARE for the clusterf*ck we now call health insurance in America. I don't know who the bigger azzhole is....OBAMA or NANCY PELOSI. I'm sure they both have VERY GOOD health insurance though.

She's a completely talentless spoiled pos seeking for 'some' attention in the daily news. Maybe she should join with Brooke Hoogan

Being that she has been forced to go there against her will there is no way Amanda should be responsible for the Bill. The Judge and her Mom who are the reason she is in UCLA should be the ones who pay the Bill. You can bet Amanda would be released (as she should be) in less then an hour if this were the case.

Since Amanda is forced to be there against her will she should not have to pay any of this. If anyone should be responsible for the bill if should be the dumb Judge who put her there and the Doctors who keep her there. If they did have to pay the bill you could bet she would be released in less then 30 minutes.

Since she is being held on order from the court, shouldn't the state be responsible for the costs associated with her treatment?

TMZ, please leave this woman alone. She has mental issues and doesn't need her life played out in the tabloids. She isn't Lindsay Lohan, Kim K, Kanye W, Tanning Mom, or Bieber, all of whom create their own drama.
