If I Have to Go to Rehab, Who will Pay for the Therapy?
Check your health insurance policy as it is quite possible that this therapy will be paid for. But, please read your policy carefully as there may be some clauses that limit coverage for this type of “illness”. I know of a situation where the health insurer paid for the first 7 weeks of therapy until the physician was allowed to spend a week-end at home. The insurer refused to pay for the several weeks of additional rehabilitation in the facility on the ground that the therapy was not necessary because the physician had been permitted to go home unsupervised for that week-end.
