Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face.
