  4. RHI will check your insurance benefits. View insurance accepted. If you qualify for admission, we will submit your paperwork for approval from your insurance company or Medicare.
  5. Your Clinical Liaison or Case Manager will communicate your coverage and any out of pocket expenses that will need to be paid before admission. View information on billing and financial assistance.
  6. You will then be given a date and time for transportation to RHI. This can be via family member, van, or ambulance if needed.
