What People Are Saying
I valued opportunities to talk to other residents about their experiences with their illnesses, and how they coped. This helped during my recovery: to know others are going through similar things.
Please come prepared to pay the first thirty days' fee ($10,500) on the day of the resident's arrival. (We do not accept credit cards or Pay Pal payments) Because of the initial effort involved in admissions, thirty (30) days of the fee or $10,500 is not refundable. Should a Resident come to the Ranch in the middle of a month, a portion of the initial fee will be credited to the Resident's second month.
Statements are sent out about the 25th of each month. A statement includes the fee for the coming month, as well as any expenses incurred by the Resident in the previous month. We ask that all balances be paid by the 10th of the month. There is no charge for a Resident's first day and overnight; however, the last day of a Resident's stay is billed at the full rate regardless of the time of departure. A 1% per month service charge will be imposed on all balances unpaid forty-five days after the invoice date.
Medicaid/Medicare does not cover the cost of residential treatment. Out-of-state Medicaid will not cover the costs of medication, medical visits, lab work, or private therapy.
