Helping You With Treatment Fees and Insurance
Rosecrance wants to help you or your loved one get the expert treatment that leads to lasting recovery. That’s why we work with our clients to help ensure that care is affordable and why we accept most insurance plans.
Please take a minute to review our financial policies, including fees and insurance coverage.
An overview of fees and financial policies
Rosecrance is a not-for-profit healthcare provider. We keep our fees as low as possible as an ongoing policy.
Rosecrance clients may receive two types of charges. These are known as “routine charges” and “non-routine charges.”
Routine charges. Every client who is treated at Rosecrance will be billed for routine charges, which are covered under our daily rate for treatment. If you receive inpatient treatment, you may have to pay fees for routine items like room and board, group therapy and individual sessions with a counselor. If you receive outpatient treatment, you’ll pay fees for group and individual sessions.
Non-routine charges. Not all Rosecrance clients need items and services such as prescription medications, lab work, psychiatric consultations, special medical care, or certain other services. The costs for these non-routine items are in addition to the daily rate; however, they may be covered by insurance. Your patient account representative will be glad to explain these fees.

We’ll help you estimate your cost of care
Your Rosecrance patient account representative will work with you ahead of time and during your or your loved one’s admission into our program to estimate the cost of care. You and your representative will then work together to develop a financial plan that is both realistic and suited to your needs. Your representative will help verify your insurance coverage and talk with you about any co-payments or required deposits. We’ll also help you find out if you are eligible for other sources of payment if help is needed.
