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.

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.

I hope she gets well however i must say 3500 a day is not unreasonable! No I am not on crack or any other drug just Canadian (lol) you know your northern cousin with free medical care ( we pay between 30-40% of income in federal tax topped with a monthly payment per person/family here in BC)
An average night stay in a hospital in Victoria BC is 2500 a night in a four or more person ward! So 3500
Is cheaper then our hospital private rooms with no
Extra treatments or perks. A TV is over 95.00 a week
And forget WIFI!
Really it's sad to think of a persons health and well being in dollar signs I hope she gets the help she needs. It's lucky she can afford treatment too many
People can not get treatment needed in both countries!

That's a small price to pay when your child really needs the BEST OF CARE!!! Depending upon how well her treatment works, she may be able to resume her career and write a book about her bout with mental illness. If she plays her cards right, she'll make more money!!!

The celebrities are aliens and we're going to be invaded by them. The UFOs are coming and they will be playing pop songs from the spaceships. Next Easter (4/20/2014), the celebs will reveal Jesus (a nun that looks like David Duchovny who wanted to shoot her friend from high school in the head). The Catholic people surrounding this nun are a pack of hypocrites. The celebs are eventually be performing at these award shows NAKED. Look up Lyndsie James, Emily Marie Falkner (future wife of a US Vice-President). She has seen a photo of her future husband and both agree to marry each other. These people come from the state of AZ. It's a global conspiracy. These people are breaking the law left and right.
