    Insurance and Your Obligations During Treatment

    A staff member will review your Patient Responsibility with you when you’re admitted or as soon as you are medically stable. They will explain the deductible is due during admission and that the co-insurance amount and out-of-pocket balance will be billed and paid for once services are complete. Onsite financial counselors will review your financial responsibility again during treatment with case managers, who can also help you navigate FMLA.

    It is your responsibility to check with your insurance provider prior to admitting at The Recovery Village Kansas City to understand your individual benefits plan. Please note that your insurance plan may not be a “participating provider” with The Recovery Village Kansas City. You are responsible for all non-covered and out-of-pocket costs related to your treatment stay.
