Patients can avoid some of the hassles of insurance coverage by choosing to pay for care out of pocket. In some cases the cost of care can be negotiated.
Paying for rehabilitation in cash (including money order) is usually seen as the best and fastest option. Paying in cash is advantageous because it negates any interest costs from either a payment plan or a lender – keeping total costs for you as low as possible. For patients that want the flexibility of cash, but do not have cash on hand, a personal loan or credit card may be good options.
Sliding scale, a flexible fee system based on a patient's ability to pay, is also an option for uninsured clients.
