A deal's a deal!
Now that Amanda Bynes has been formally diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder , we're SO relieved she is finally getting the treatment she needs AND at a reduced cost too!
The troubled starlet's current treatment facility in Malibu is charging $60,000 a month — less than half of UCLA Medical Center's mega bills!
Still, Manda's people insist that the switch wasn't because of finances, but simply because the new digs specialize in her very particular complex psychiatric issues and double diagnoses.
A Bynes fam insider explained:
"[Money is] absolutely NOT the reason for the move. Amanda is worth $3 million … even if she was broke, her parents, Lynn & Rick would mortgage their house, sell their cars, if that is what needed to be done to pay the medical bills. She doesn’t have any health insurance through the Screen Actors Guild because she isn’t eligible as she hasn’t worked in several years. The good news is that Amanda is adapting very well to her new surroundings and treatment plan.”
Thank goodness for all those whopping paychecks from her Nickelodeon days, right??!
Regardless, mental help can come with a SERIOUS price tag!
Does anyone else see something wrong with the fact that most normal folks would NEVER be able to afford such major costs for necessary care??!
