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.

Sounds about right. I was in a Mental Health Facility in 2001. It was $2,100 a day. I was there for 9 days. They factor in medication that can cost between $ 10- 30 a pill, food, Doctor and supervision fee, Lab work, so much for the Bed per day etc. I have insurance, and hope she does too. She'll be broke in no time trying to pay the Cost

So who should pay the bill? Me? The tax payer? I'm sure she has made more than enough money to cover her bills, if not, transfer to one she can afford.

There is no way Amanda should be stuck with the Bill.She is being forced to stay there by a Judge and her mother had her transferred to UCLA. Make them responsible to pay the bill and then watch how fast Amanda is released.

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.

Please join the 21st century, TMZ! There is no such entity as "SAG", anymore. Any *former* SAG members (or AFTRA members) are now fully vested as members of one union, "SAG-AFTRA"...and we all have the membership cards to prove it. See: http://www.sagaftra.org Please advise your staff - for accuracy's sake!

The money that she will earn from Playboy will cover this.

Why is she paying this much if she is forced here against her will? I understand she needs to be treated, but that is a lot of money to pay for.

Now we know why the doctors want to keep her there for so long. She might be ill but a year? Right. Money talks and they see her as a meal ticket.

so its basically in these clinics financial interest to conclude that she needs further treatment therefore making themselves tons loads more cash? Hmm I see huge scam potential here and a conflict of interest.

How disgustingly sick and immoral it is for UCLA Med. to charge someone that much money for what is so vital a service to those who are locked in addiction. We have one screwed-up medical system and country to allow this kind of wretched profiteering off the backs of those who are horrible caught up in the sickness of addiction. I would be embarrassed to sit on their board.
